I have a story in the cutest ever anthology

Pirating Pups: Salty Sea-Dogs and Barking Buccaneers is the official title of the book. There were two main rules to submitting a short story to it: the story must have a speculative element and must fit the (adorable) theme of “pirating pups.”

I submitted a short story entitled “Ghost Pirate Dognapper.” It features Bea Romo Reyes, the freelance exorcist you may remember from my Halloween serial The Memory of Ghosts, as she’s hired to recover a dog the owner claims was kidnapped by a ghost pirate.

Needless to say, I’m happy it got accepted into the anthology. It was fun to write and hopefully just as fun to read. If you’re interested, there’s more info below:

X Marks More Than One Spot

Enter a world of Barking Buccaneers, where piratical dogs sail the seas, seeking one tail-chasing adventure after another. Whether dealing with sea monsters, the doldrums, or bitter betrayal, these dogs have a true nose for adventure and always dig up their buried treasure.

Featuring thirteen daring “tails” of dogs, puns, and fun by: Chadwick Ginther; Jennifer Lee Rossman; Meghan Beaudry; Kristen Brand; Richard Lau; V.F. LeSann; Alice Dryden; Melanie Marttila; Mathew Austin; JB Riley; Frances Pauli; George Jacobs; and E. C. Bell.

If Kristen Brand could have any superpower, she'd want telekinesis so she wouldn't have to move from her computer to pour a new cup of tea. She spends far too much time on the internet, and when she's not writing, she's usually reading novels or comic books. Icon by @heckosart.
