GIVE: An Anthology of Anatomical Entries
My story "This Little Piggy" is included.
Published May 8, 2015 by WtD Books
Tales of organ donation fill this anthology, though not the heart-warming, life-changing medical tales you might imagine. They run the gamut from the touching to the truly horrifying.
"This Little Piggy" is the tale of a hapless and horny teenager who is forced, quite literally, to donate his little toe to the head cheerleader. The story is a tickle that makes you squirm.
AMOK! Short Sharp Shocks
"Sparrow" is M. Lori Motley's contribution to this anthology about people, things and... other things running AMOK!
Published September 2014 by April Moon Books
The stories in this anthology cover a wide variety of interpretations on the theme.
In "Sparrow" a young wizard is drawn toward the city and the source of all magical power through a landscape gone insane. He tries to hold onto his rational mind while every other wizard seems overtaken or undone by uncontrolled spell casting. What he discovers at the end might be the answer to everything... or not.
"Ugly Babies 2" Anthology
"Bond" is a disturbing tale of the birth of a monster and a literal bond between mother and child.
Published January 2014 by James Ward Kirk Publishing.
The theme of this anthology is deliciously disgusting and not for the faint of heart.
"Bond" tells the birthing story of a normal, everyday woman whose infant is anything but, the doctor who is forced to deliver, a no-nonsense nurse, and the unconscious husband on the floor. A grotesque story of the unexpected and a mother's love. This dark tale describes the birth of a monster who is quite literally attached to its mother always and forever.
