“Revelation” or “A Momentous Glimpse of Our Future”

Be calm, anyone with the apocalypse on the brain: By “revelation”, I am not referring to a book about the end of the world.

…Well, no. I guess, in a sense, I kind of am.

Never mind. Don’t be calm. Be super excited, because this is the day for the official “act of revealing to view or making known” the cover of J. Taylor Publishing’s One More Day anthology!


Breathtaking, yes?! Of course, my breath got taken the moment I knew my name was going on the cover (see, see? Danielle E. Shipley? That’s me! ^o^), so I claim very little objectivity on the matter. Ignore my hyperventilating, drooling carrying-on and read the blurb:

* * * * *

What if today never ends?

What if everything about life—everything anyone hoped to be, to do, to experience—never happens?

Whether sitting in a chair, driving down the road, in surgery, jumping off a cliff or flying … that’s where you’d be … forever.


In One More Day, Erika Beebe, Marissa Halvorson, Kimberly Kay, J. Keller Ford, Danielle E. Shipley and Anna Simpson join L.S. Murphy to give us their twists, surprising us with answers to two big questions, all from the perspective of characters under the age of eighteen.

How do we restart time?

How do we make everything go back to normal?

The answers, in whatever the world—human, alien, medieval, fantasy or fairytale—could, maybe, happen today.

Right now.

What would you do if this happened … to you?

* * * * *

So, yup – that’s what’s coming at the end of the year, if not the end of the world. One More Day (including “A Morrow More” by Danielle E. Shipley!), December 2, 2013!

P.S. – Happy birthday, Donna! (Not that my baby sister can be bothered to read my blog, or anything. But since my mom and dad got their own posts on their birthdays, I figured I’d err on the side of safety and at least give today’s birthday girl a shout-out. She’s 17, people. I feel so old.)

P.P.S – Speaking of shiny new stuff to reveal, I’ve got a full-on authorial website now, in addition to my blog! www.deshipley.com, y’all. A click on my face on the sidebar will link you straight there. (:

    • Thank you very much! To quote a recent interview (http://ebarnes23.wordpress.com/2013/05/07/author-interview-danielle-shipley-includes-a-book-review/):

      I wrote my contribution, “A Morrow More”, after reading about the call for submissions via somebody’s blog; I wish now I could remember whose, but I didn’t make a note of it at the time, having no idea then that anything would come of my entry. Boy, was I ever a joyful wreck when the publishers told me they wanted my story – and again when they said they wanted to take on one of my novels to publish next year, too! Truthfully, I’m still kind of a joyful wreck, whenever I think about it too hard. “One More Day” in December, and “Inspired” in March, Wilderhark Tales before, after, and in between… My authorial life just shot into overdrive, world!

  1. Gorgeous cover, especially that cool-looking name second-to-last from the bottom. 😉 So exciting!!!

    Also, re: your sister being 17–just wait until she goes to college. Then, you will really feel your age. O_O

    • Oh, yay, I’m not the only one who thinks the second-to-last name is coolness squared. #Validated!

      College??? It’s weird enough to remember she’s going to beauty school in the fall! X( Maybe this anthology about frozen time has come none too soon…
