Make Believe with Lynda R. Young, M. Pax News


Lynda R. Young’s short story titled Birthright has been published by J. Taylor Publishing in the Make Believe anthology launched TODAY! Virtual cake for everyone!! Make Believe is currently available in e-book format and includes Paranormal Romance and Fantasy stories inspired by the image on the cover. This will make great holiday reading.

Birthright by Lynda R. Young
Christa can mask the pain and hide the scars, but running from a birthright is impossible.

She’s tried to escape her grief by fleeing to a small town in Florida. Much to her frustration, the locals think they recognize her even though she’s never been there before. To make things worse, a man named Jack spouts outrageous theories about her.

Both spur Christa to bolt, to start fresh yet again, but there’s something about Jack that intrigues her enough to stay. The only problem? Someone else wants her to leave, and they won’t stop until she’s dead. 

Blurbs from all the stories included in Make Believe can be found on the J. Taylor Publishing website HERE.

Happy December

Congrats to Lynda! How wonderful to see her make her debut.

Can you believe it’s December already? I started missing astronomizing and gazing through telescopes. Why is winter so long? I’ll have to try and take Orson Bradbury out sometime soon.

Still working on Backworlds #3. It’s coming together nicely. I will finish, but I still need to hunker down. I’m pretty sure Craze is throwing things at me in a raging hate right now.

Remember Writers4Writers starts this week. It’s very easy and won’t take much time. All’s you do is go to Nancy Thompson’s website this Thursday and copy and paste her blurbs into Twitter, or look up #W4WS on Twitter and RT someone else’s tweet about Nancy. Same for Facebook. Check HERE for what Nancy posts, then share to your FB pages. Simple.

Hobbitfest is December 14th. Join in an unexpected journey.

I’ll be back Wednesday for a combo IWSG and Spacedock. How’s your December going?

    I can’t believe it December already. IWSG and W4W are going to rock! I’ve got to finish up a story due to my editor, then I will be free to relax a bit before tackling another project.

    A huge congrats to Lynda. That is wonderful news.

    The book cover is pretty.

    I need to get my act together for the Hobbit blogfest.

  5. December 3, 2012    

    Yay, Lynda. It is such a beautiful cover, especially for the Holidays. I hope it does really well.

    And, gah, December just sort of leapt up out of nowhere. I’m already feeling behind for the holidays.

  6. December 3, 2012    

    I’m so anxious to get the Make Believe anthology. I love the cover and the stories sound right up my alley. Congratulations to Lynda!

    Looking forward to the Writers 4 Writers kick off!

    Congrats to Lynda on Make Believe! It sounds terrific.

    Thanks, Mary, for all the reminders. I need to put these on my calendar or I need a keeper. I guess the calendar will have to work.

  8. December 3, 2012    

    I’m excited for Lynda, too, Alex. It’s great to see so many of our friends publishing these days.

    Yes, I am, Laura. The glower he’s giving me is kinda scary, but it won’t stop me.

    Yay on another story by you, Melissa. That’s great news.

    Me, too, Diane.

    Ditto, LG. And I, too, hope Lynda does really well.

    I look forward to reading it, too, Julie. Sounds really good.

    I wish I had a keeper, too, Brinda. Well, a maid first. :)

    It’s great to see 61 people signed up for W4WS! I can see this event being a smashing success and picking up steam as the months roll into 2012.

    I’m signed up for the Hobbitfest and have been promoting it. And that’s a great pic of you and your telescope going through winter withdrawals.

  19. December 3, 2012    

    I do need to take Orson out soon, Leigh. When the sky clears.

    It should be a great circle for us all to get involved with, Michael.

    Weird indeed, Tonja.

    I lurves me Telescope, Jay.

    It looks to be so, Cherie.

    I miss peering through Orson, Suze.

    It’s great to see her making a splash, Ciara.

    Great to hear from you, Amanda :)

    I’m excited to see W4WS start this week, Stephen.
