Miscellany Volume II: It’s Finally Here!

January 12, 2022

One lady can have a baby in nine months, but nine ladies can’t have a baby in one month.

– Mythical Man Month

It look us longer than a month. And I’m not sure if there are only nine of us. But, our latest baby, the anthology called Miscellany II is finally here. It’s available for order today on Amazon.

Writing a book and having a baby are nothing alike. Although I have 13 children, I was there for the pregnancy and birth of three of them. And after the birth of my first one, I realized that if it was up to men, we’d have one child and then adopt.

Having babies is hard work.

But, one thing writing a book and having a baby have in common is that both are anticipated with great expectation. And today is the day our little collection of stories is officially available.

I’ve written things before. I’ve even published books in the past. They were tech books. Tech books typically don’t have a lot of vulnerability in them. You write about the product. Fiction is completely different.

And a tech book has a useful life of about 18 months. Technologies change and books go out of date. For better or worse, the story I put into Miscellany II will still be just as entertaining or boring 18 months or 18 years from now.

You can buy Miscellany II here.

I’ve also interviewed several of the authors and the editor for Miscellany II.

Interview with editor James Elliott (also one of the authors)

Interview with author Amanda Luzzader

Interview with author Amy Jorgensen

Interview with author Kevin A Davis

Interview with author A. Shepherd

So, if you’ve ever wanted to support a woefully insecure struggling writer. Now’s your change. Order Miscellany II here.

Stay safe
