Missing by Margot Justes

A new anthology from Echelon Press-Missing- is scheduled to debut at Bouchercon in Baltimore, MD next month.

Many wonderful writers, among them our own ACME author Norm Cowie donated a short story. All the stories have a common link-a missing person, and royalties are being donated to charity.

In 2007 they were over 800,000 people who disappeared- are missing-that is a staggering number. Hopefully our efforts will leave a mark-it is a step in the right direction.

The idea came from Amy Alessio, a YA Librarian at the Schaumburg Library in Illinois. She participated in The Heat of the Moment Anthology, and approached Karen Syed of Echelon press at the Love is Murder conference (LIM) and asked if it could be done.

Karen did not hesitate and immediately responded positively; she had authors lined up before the conference was finished.

There is a book signing already scheduled at Centuries & Sleuths.
November 23 1-3 pm.
7419 W. Madison St. Forest Park, IL

Among the authors who committed to the signing are Amy Alessio, Robert Goldsborough, Margot Justes, Joe Konrath, Mary Welk, and more to come.

Till next Saturday,

Fascinating idea and a great cause!

The good thing about anthologies is you can read them when you don't have a lot of time and still feel like you've gotten somewhere.
