Launching Anything Prose...and Poetry Too!

by Melissa Kline, co-founder Anassa Publications, LLC

For today's Celebrate the Small Things post, I have to confess, I am celebrating something pretty big.

Today Kathy Cannon Wiechman's 9/11 poetry and Kim Van Sickler's ice fishing short story "Adift" are being published in Anything Prose…and Poetry, Too! – a one of a kind collection of works written by 32 talented authors. This project was inspired by a small community of writers and is filled with writings of all genres and styles, giving the overall book a very unique feel.

I wanted to share this exciting news and ask for your support.Today is the day of our official launch and we are aiming to receive “best-seller” status. Your purchase can help make that happen!

This book is the perfect rainy day companion and makes a great gift for just about anyone. Here is a sample of what you will find inside Anything Prose…And Poetry, Too!:

Inspiration - Choose to say "Yes", remember that you are loved and discover how to bring happiness into your life.

Suspense - Attempt an escape from a crazed maniac in a violent storm. Stagger your way through a haunted house.

Memoir - Follow a mother's journey through the joys of parenthood. Discover a man's process of love and loss. See how one woman's relationship with her pet changed her life.

Abstract - Find out what it's like to ride in a paper airplane. Prepare for a journey to the sun.

Chick Lit - A cynical 20-something finds unexpected love... in a hot tub.

Humor - Follow a day in the life of an enthusiastic Jack Russell terrier.

Adventure - Go on a fishing expedition with a teen who saves the day. Trek with a lonely Basque sheepherder.
