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.
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. (:
