Cover Reveal for MASQUERADE: ODDLY SUITED #YA #Romance

It's been a thrill getting to know a new group of authors who wrote short stories for the upcoming anthology, Masquerade: Oddly Suited. I love their fun marketing ideas, like sharing puzzle pieces of the cover over the weekend before the cover reveal today.

The anthology features young adult romance with a masquerade/mask theme. Dancing Lemur Press specializes in speculative fiction, and I believe many of the stories are fantasy, paranormal, or supernatural.

The cover certainly has an other-worldly feel!



My story, Behind the Catcher's Mask, is void of green monsters but does contain young love between a softball pitcher and baseball catcher:

Fast-pitch softball is Andie Wilson’s life. She’s a fierce pitcher hoping to score a college scholarship, and she hates the annoying distraction of cocky baseball players crashing her high-school charity game.

#IWSG Young Adult Romance Anthology MASQUERADE: ODDLY SUITED

Happy New Year to all writers!



I'm vacationing in Florida this week so I've abdicated all responsibility, including a timely post. Today we went to Universal and I walked 23,000 steps!

But I'm especially excited to share that my short story was selected for the next IWSG anthology, Masquerade: Oddly Suited

When I first learned of the anthology's young adult romance / masquerade theme, a vision of smoldering blue eyes behind a catcher's mask came to me. I built on that image to write a YA sports romance involving a baseball catcher and a softball pitcher.



Congratulations to all authors who submitted. Here's the list of titles for the anthology:
