A couple of years ago, I was able to be part of Fellowship of Fantasy’s first anthology, Fantastic Creatures. In anticipation of the release of their third antholgy, I get to be part of the blog tour. Anthologies are wonderful ways to get to know new authors as you read short stories that go along with a specific theme. With this anthology, we have the theme of doorways.
Featured Author, A. J. Bakke
Two summers ago, I had the privilege of making a trip to the midwest, and blogged about my journey. The roadtrip started though with a day in Pioneer Courtyard Square in Portland, Oregon, with two other authors, S. Smith and A. J. Bakke. Sharing a pop-up 10’x10′ canvas was great fun. A. J. Bakke has a short story in the anthology as well as other books.
A. J. Bakke’s favorite things to do are horseback riding, reading, and writing books. She writes almost every morning with a big cup of coffee nearby and one or more cats piled on her. Cats are attracted to magical people, after all. Pumpkin is probably my personal favorite to see pictures of.
Cosmic Cravings involves characters from her Worlds Akilter Series. Bree the mouse-mage is obsessed with chocolate covered coffee beans, but when she is relocated to the world of Deart by a demigod, she discovers that chocolate doesn’t exist there. The horror! Despite her immense powers, she’s not that great with magic, so her attempts to get back to Earth cause a few problems, but might also lead to helping a child in trouble.
