Bellator is out today on Amazon, Createspace, Barnes and Noble and Smashwords. The ebook is $3.99 on all outlets, with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project. A small price to pay for twelve stories, six each of fantasy and science fiction, all featuring warriors, and for a very good cause. My short story Slacker, a tale from the Exodus: Empire at War Universe, will only be found here. An interview with the Editor, author Mia Darien, can be found on her website, with quotes from all the authors about what they think is worth fighting for. Pick up your copy today at your favorite outlet. It is definitely a project I am proud to be involved with.
I first got involved in this project through an email from author Raphyel Jordan, who I met at the Superstars Writer’s Conference in Colorado Springs. In an earlier blog I talked about this conference, put on by bestselling author Kevin J Anderson and his wife, Rebecca Moesta. Raphyel asked if I would be interested, and of course I was very much so, so he put me in touch with Mia. I decided that since the anthology was benefiting Wounded Warriors, I would write a story about a Marine who was wounded and continued to fight, accomplishing his mission despite all of the pain he had to go through. I saw the cover art back in June and was very impressed with it. So, give it a try and let us know what you think.
