Book Review: Summer’s Edge and Summer’s Double Edge

Today I want to announce the release of EBP’s summer anthologies, Summer’s Edge and Summer’s Double Edge. These anthologies are close to my heart not only because I edited them, but also because I had the opportunity to work with many of you who read my blog.


All stories play with the idea of a short-lived relationship—inspired by the summer fling. (Notice the season?) The stories contained in these two anthologies are sharp, insightful, and at times deliciously twisted. I’m not going to lie, some of the stories I had to put down and take a breather for. I’d find myself tensing up, nervous about where the story was going. That ability to physically affect the reader—especially in a short story—is a sign of a highly skilled writer. And these anthologies are full of them.

Within the two anthologies you’ll find all types of love and romance—along with adventure, murder, and the supernatural. While it’s a great summer read, don’t be surprised if these short stories stay with you long after you’ve finished them.

Happy writing,

    *whistles casually, hoping no one realizes his story is actually set in the spring*

    It was a pleasure to be involved, and I'm looking forward to reading all the stories in both books.
