It’s out! It’s out! See that bolded name up there? That’s mine! I am so stoked about this.
My contribution is an Aphanasian story that includes some new and some familiar (*cough* Bayne *cough*) characters.
And readers are enjoying it. Check out this review:
“An unusual love story unfolds between an imp and a half-elf in “Sharp as a Griffin’s Claw” by Rhonda Parrish. I liked the unusual protagonists in the story, and how they came to love each other. I really liked how each of them gave their all to the relationship, and each became much more than they would have been had they been alone. Very smartly told, and an awesome addition to Women in Practical Armor.”
