Išm happy to announce the return of The House on Sandstone, now available from Bella Books (www.bellabooks.com ). Thanks to everyone who bought the first edition. This one has only minor changes from the earlier version, but it has a cool cover by Steph. Herešs the synopsis, and stop by to check out what else is in the works at www.kgmacgregor.com .
Twenty-five years ago, Carly Griffin left her home town of Leland, Kentucky sure that it held nothing for her future. Now weary of living overseas for one consulting project after another, shešs glad to have two months back home to relax with her aging parents.
When she catches a glimpse of her high school friend Justine in the doorway of her elegant home, Carly is surprised by the warm, familiar feelings that the image stirs within her.
Justine Hall made different life choices, returning to Leland after college to marry and raise two children. Now divorced, she walks a fine line between sanity and hell, struggling to reconcile the sexuality she can no longer deny with the expectations of motherhood and mores in a small town. Could these two women possibly have anything in common after all these years?

I have spoken to Roselle this evening and she has approved sending PayPal donations to me in her name. She works near us so delivering cash to her will be rather simple. Remember she also doesn't have a computer so setting up a PayPal account at this time is difficult for her. Your PayPal name will show up in the email that will be sent to me automatically with your donation. If you would please include your screen name in the note box, we can pass that information on to Roselle.

"An editor's least favorite job is rejecting-no, I hate that word-not accepting submissions for publication. We would love to accept every story that arrives in our inbox. So in order to increase the odds of us accepting a story, here's a run down of what goes through our minds when we read a submission"....."The only way to understand well-written short stories is to read well-written short stories. The trick is knowing where to find such creatures."

Hope everyone is having a happy and safe holiday.
We hope you will enjoy the January issue of Khimairal Ink.
This month's selections capture the essence of our submission statement. "the stories we most enjoy are positive, thought-provoking, and clever."
First time contributor, Stephen D. Rogers has penned the clever who-dun-it, Intermittent, while another newbie, Sharon Hadrian's funny slash fiction piece, My Father is a Lesbian, is certain to invoke your own scientific studies. T.J. Mindancer has graciously added to her Emoria world with a thought-provoking tale about obligation and choices while Q. Kelly's exquisitely told story, The Old Woman, offers a different perspective about true love and second chances. We are fortunate to have an excerpt from Barbara Davies' new anthology "Into the Yellow". Barbara has been one of our favorite contributors to Khimairal Ink and her collection of spec-fic stories is superb.
You can find these great stories at:
Our parent company, Bedazzled Ink Publishing Company will have a booth at the Xena Convention on January 12-14, 2007 in Burbank. We'll have...hot off the press... copies of Barbara's new book along with Mindancer's Emoria Tales and C.A Casey's children's stories. So if you are there, stop by and say hello!
