This book contains brand-new, prize-winning and wonderful short stories inspired by remembered or imagined dreams. My story, “Wishes,” is about a magic coin and enduring love.
The story begins:
On October 31, 1958, moonbeams lit the stardust that sprinkled Crescent Avenue’s sycamore and hawthorn trees. On that clear, bright evening, candles dimmed inside jack-o-lanterns as Estelle Ringgold Pearson said, “We shouldn’t see anymore spooky movies.”
Parnell held her hand as they strolled from the Roland Theater.
“Did The Queen of Outer Space really scare you?”
The anthology is produced by Flying Ketchup Press. Of this publisher, Managing Editor Polly Alice McCann writes,
We are here in the Heartland. Flying Ketchup is right smack in the middle of the country and the Kansas City metro area. I have noticed from social media that writers like me, who read and make music and love art, are extremely down in the mouth right now. And for good reason. So we are continuing to do our darndest to connect and bring your amazing voices together. Socially distanced, but still, we will connect dreamers, poets, artists & storytellers with the larger community. A community that needs their work now more than ever.
Buy a copy of this delightful and imaginative collection for your enjoyment and more to give as gifts and, especially, to enjoy my wonderful story, “Wishes.”
