I know those of you who submitted stories (thank you again to all of you!) are itching to find out whether or not yours will be included in the anthology, so without further ado, I present the list of selected stories (in alphabetical order by title):
The Big Two-One by Kate Sheeran Swed
Clover June and the Midsummer Melee by Gabriella Crivilare
Echoes of Lily by Susan Nystoriak
Fashioning Robes by R.B. Stewart
If These Wings Could Fly by Kyrie McCauley
Petals to the Sea by Cristina R. Guarino
Solitary Duality by Antonius M. Hogebrandt
Sweet Dreams, Love by Adriana Marachlian
For those curious about the selection process – all stories were originally reviewed by two readers. Any story with two ‘yeses’ were automatically added to the list for inclusive. Those with one ‘yes’ and one ‘no’ were passed on to a tiebreaker.
Overall, the submissions were great! Thank you all so much for participating, and be sure to check back soon for more details about the anthology, which will be available on the 21st of June, just in time for the start of summer!
