Today is it, friends.
Today, Stars and Soul is out and about. By this time, the Kindle pre-orders are delivered to the people who pre-ordered (a surprising amount of whom are not related to me).
Stars and Soul is a tiny collection of four sci-fi flash fictions (stories under 1,000 words) that has received acclaim from Tosca Lee, Nadine Brandes, Steve Rzasa, and Just B. Jordan.
Here’s the official blurb (I’ve probably been saying this in my sleep by this point):
A scheming imperial family. A bedraggled starship captain. A runaway artificial intelligence. A dying general.
Four small stories of stars and soul.
And today this little thing is out in the world for anyone who cares to read it. Paperbacks are available as adorable little 4×6 books printed with a matte cover and full color title pages designed by the amazing Alea Harper–one for each story.
The instrumental playlist of songs I listened to while writing the stories for Stars and Soul.
The playlist I listen to whenever a story of mine gets rejected or published. Which means it’s what I had on repeat yesterday and is most likely the only thing I’m going to be listening to today.
And, in case you missed it earlier: the Pinterest board.
And a playlist called “sunrise” with some songs that inspired imagery in the last story in the collection: Star-rise.
There are three giveaways running to celebrate the launch!!

I am so blessed to have been able to work with all the fantastic people who have been part of this process:
… from Alea and her gorgeous art…
… to Sarah Delena White who formatted the Kindle copy…
… to Lauren Hildebrand (my favorite flash fiction editor)…
… to my amazing endorsers…
… to the cover reveal team who blew up my social media…
… to Caleb (my brother), Daddy, and Katie Grace who read these four stories when they were still disasters over a year ago now…
… to every one who’s gotten excited with me these last few weeks.
You guys make my soul smile.
I am so honored to have been able to collaborate with so many people on this project, and I am so thankful to Jesus for this opportunity.
Soli deo gloria.
p.s. – I hope you enjoy the Stars and Soul galaxy. I have a feeling we haven’t seen the end of it. ;)
