PUBLISHED! Notes From Underground Anthology

Last year The Literary Lab ran a contest for which the prize was ten page in an anthology. This morning they have unveiled their cover for the NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND ANTHOLOGY.
Isn't it stunning? This beautiful paperback is now available on Amazon in print copy for $10 or for the E-book at $4.99, click here. You can also purchase a copy at the CreateSpace Store where a greater percentage of the proceeds will go to the American Society of Journalists and Authors Writers Emergency Assistance Fund. All profits from the sale of this literary collection will go to that charitable foundation. Check out the LitLab's post for details on how to get a discount code too.

I was one of twenty-five winners, and my short story, MAYBE, is included. Thank you, Literary Lab. I'm happy and humbled to be a part of this publication.

If you haven't already checked them out, you should. There are a lot of talented folks who hang out in the lab and you might find you don't want to leave.

Peace out. It's March!

Hi Yvonne, I just wanted to stop in and tell you I just finished reading "Maybe." And I have a big goony smile on my face.

I loved how you melded the serenity of the story with the landscape. I love how the characters speak in small bits and allow some of the silences to speak the rest. And I love how there's a stoic sort of serenity that's just pumping with a palpable stress.

Can you tell that I enjoyed your story? I really did! It was a pleasure to read.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Nevine,
Thank you!!!! What a lovely review. I love your description of the story, and I'm so happy you liked it. You've put a big smile on my face! I'm still waiting for my books to arrive. No kindle here.

Jayne said...

Yvonne Osborne said...

Janye,
Wow....thank you so much! I'm pleased to have you here.

Wendy,
Thanks!!

Lavanya said...

Hey Yvonne,

Just stopping by to tell you that I maybe read your story today and enjoyed it very much..loved how the 'happenings' just simmered on the surface without actually boiling over (if that makes sense)

Yvonne Osborne said...

Lavanya,
Thank you so much!! This little blurb made my morning.
