Wow, the print version for the Athena's Daughter's anthology is beautiful!
I shared previously about my story, "The Songbird's Search" coming out soon in the anthology, Athena's Daughters, from Silence in the Library. (Coming out so far in July)
Interestingly, as part of the Kickstarter funding, original art was commissioned for the print version.
The cover reflects the beautiful women represented in the various stories.
The art features Athena, (of course!), along with women from all walks of life, including a historical figure like Amelia Earhart and Bee, whose flight suit brings to mind NASA and space travel, reflecting the introduction by former NASA astronaut and Space Shuttle Commander Pam Melroy, and the story, "Millie," by author and US Marine Corps Pilot Janine K. Spendlove.
The back cover reflects the steampunk/gothic ladies featured in several stories and Mina from Cynthia Ward's story, "Whoever Fights Monsters."
There is also an Amazonian river goddess from Jean Rabe's story, "Visage" and an older, physically handicapped woman (who happens to be a superhero), representing Sherwood Smith's character in "Commando Bats."
Then there is a contemporary figure resembling an everyday working woman based on Gail Z. Martin's character in "Retribution.
The cover for the ebook version (below) stays the same. Here also is the wonderful art portrait of my character Marietta from my story, "The Songbird's Search." Read an excerpt of my story.
This is such a great project, with stories from all different genres. I can't wait to read it! (And even better - for once I'm not listed last because my last name starts with a V! ha!)
