Orange You Glad You Dropped By?

It seems I am forever apologizing for my titles (sorry!), but I had to get the color orange in there somehow!

I have a new short story coming out as part of an anthology for middle-grade school kids. The title of the story is One Above Zero. It's about a girl named Zoe who is the target of bullying by her classmates because of a health problem. The book is Tales From the Bully Box and will be published by Elephant’s Bookshelf Press.

The anthology is in support of an anti-bullying effort by PACER. Orange is the color they have chosen to show support for their cause. And today, October 22, 2014, is designated as Unity Day when their supporters wear orange.

A post by Cat Woods, the editor and a contributor, describing how this project came about is found on The Bully Box web site. For kids interested in the book, Cat has this post.

The book is in the final stages of preparation, but the cover is ready and here it is!
