Mind Bridges Callihoo Publishing has printed my fantasy short fiction collection, Mind Bridges. It's now available in both paperback and as an ebook on Amazon.com. This book collects several of my previously published fantasy stories: "Soul Walls," "Not the Best Neighbors," "Changes of Life," "Strength, Wisdom, and Compassion," "Gathering Shards, and "Power Sources," and adds "Skin and Bones," which is not available anywhere else! Seven stories for one economical price—it's cheaper to get them this way than to buy them singly as ebooks.

Sword and Sorceress 24My story "Soul Walls" is in Sword and Sorceress 24, edited by Elisabeth Waters. The anthology is available in trade paperback and for Kindle from Amazon and for Nook at Barnes & Noble. "Soul Walls" is also available in Mind Bridges.

Publishers Weekly has this to say about Sword and Sorceress XXIV: "Waters ably continues the feminist anthology series founded by Bradley (1930-1999) to showcase short-form fantasy with a wide variety of heroic female characters. Of the 17 stories featured, standout selections include "A Curious Case" by Annclaire Livoti, a literary gem of a paranormal fantasy that pits a magic-practicing PI against a serial killer targeting succubae, and Julia H. West's "Soul Walls," which brilliantly fuses magic, art and Native American mysticism. A disorganized wizard and his unhappy wife are at the heart of the charming "Merlin's Clutter" by Helen E. Davis, and a princess solves the mystery of her father's murder through a magical tapestry in Brenta Blevins's "Material Witness." Though some of the selections are less than stellar, fantasy fans looking for original stories will find much to enjoy." (emphasis mine)
