If You Care About the Sea

You might want to pick up Book View Café’s benefit anthology for gulf relief.   It’s only $4.99, available in a number of electronic formats.  I have an original essay in it (almost more like an original rant) on the dangers of ignoring the ocean. There is original and reprint fiction, poetry, and other essays in it too….you won’t be disappointed.  I promise.  And it goes to a good cause.  None of us writers get a penny – it’s all going to the gulf coast.

Here’s part of the press release:

“Book View Café has launched their benefit anthology, BREAKING WAVES. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Relief Fund of the Greater New Orleans Foundation.

The collection features over thirty stories by a wide range of best-selling and award-winning authors, including a previously-unpublished poem from Nebula and Hugo award-winner Ursula K. Le Guin, as well as a chapter from Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking book The Sea Around Us. Authors contributing stories of environmental rescue and recovery include Vonda N. McIntyre, Judith Tarr, Deborah Ross, Sarah Monette, David D. Levine, David Gessner, and Lyda Morehouse among others. Tiffany Trent and Phyllis Irene Radford edited the collection.

The book is available in epub, pdf, mobi, and prc formats in the Book View Café bookstore (http://www.bookviewcafe.com/index.php/Book-View-Cafe-Breaking-Waves) and will be coming to the Kindle store soon.”
