Cover Reveal: Been There Done That, Book 2

By February 29, 2016No Comments

BeenThere2-coverThere is no end to the childhood humiliations that I can draw from to write fiction. That’s especially true about the year my mother made me gift a pair of pantyhose to my favorite third grade teacher.

The perfect gift?

You can read about that horror – both the true story and its fictionalize form – in Been There Done That, Book 2, an anthology (ed. Mike Winchell, Grosset & Dunlap, 2015) that features short fiction by some of your favorite middle grade writers.

Each author offers a story along with a personal essay about the real events that inspired it. Just how tortured were we as kids in school? There’s only one way to find out…

If you work with young writers, consider preordering. The first in the series pubbed in November 2015, and Book Two “School Daze”  hits bookstores in August. Check out the website and support material here.


“A fine collection and a boon to writing teachers everywhere.”
