The daffodils my husband planted this winter are just about ready to pop open and reveal their buttery yellow heads, and I must tell you, I’m more than ready for spring this year.

Part of the reason is the new crop of book projects we’ll be releasing. I already told you about the Grayson news last week (to read that blog, click here), and now I have two new Storybundles to tell you about—and one of them includes our first Fiction River Presents release of the year!

Dean Wesley Smith has curated a space opera Storybundle that launches Wednesday and has three WMG products: Dean’s Star Rain: A Seeders Universe Novel, The Runabout: A Diving Novel by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and that new Fiction River Presents volume I told you about called Among the Stars.

Here’s the synopsis:

Editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch reaches for the stars with this latest volume of Fiction River Presents. With stories that take the reader from pulse-pounding terror and utter darkness to sheer joy and wish fulfillment, this volume runs the gamut of the space opera genre. So, get ready for a wonderful journey and see why Adventures Fantastic says: “If you haven’t checked out Fiction River yet, you should. There’s something for everyone.”
