NEVERTHELESS, SHE PERSISTED, Book View Cafe's newest anthology, contains nineteen tales of women persisting and overcoming challenges—from society, from beloved family and friends, and even from their own fears. From the halls of Ancient Greece to the vast space between stars, strong heroines explore the humor and tragedy of persistence in stories that range from romance to historical fiction, from fantasy to science fiction.

Edited by Mindy Klasky, it includes stories by Vonda N. MacIntyre, Marie Brennan, Leah Cutter, and others (including my first published short story. I'm trying not to bust a gut. )

It's now available for pre-order from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo, and will be released on August 8 (when a print edition will also be available.)
