Day 9 of our Kickstarter campaign! We’ve successfully added author Diana Peterfreund to Athena’s Daughters, and we’re less than $1500 dollars away from producing our companion anthology, Apollo’s Daughters!

And now for another anthology preview. Janine K. Spendlove is a KC-130 pilot in the United States Marine Corps. Her bestselling series War of the Seasons is a gorgeous fantasy trilogy about a teenage girl, Story, who stumbles into a parallel world only to find out she might be the key to its very survival. She has also written for anthologies such as Time Traveled Tales, A Hero By Any Other Name, and more. Janine’s work for Athena’s Daughters, however, hits a little closer to home. As she notes on her blog:

…My story, “Millie,” is about modern day Marine helicopter pilot Sara Colón (based on an old friend of mine from my first days in the Corps) who has a chance encounter with a very familiar time-traveling Aviatrix. (Have you ever wanted to know what really happened to Amelia Earhart?)

Spoiler alert: her story is fantastic. I was able to get a sneak peek at it last month. But an excerpt for you fine people is posted right here on Wattpad. Check it out!

As always, thank you all so much for continuing to share and pledge to the anthology. We could not have done all of this without your generous contributions. Not to mention, every additional pledge increases rewards for the group at large. Who doesn’t want more books and goodies?

If you or anyone you may know would like to pledge toward or share about our campaign, you can do so right here.
