I’m In A Boxed Anthology!!

A group of Oklahoma authors were invited to write a series of short stories with a recurring theme based on the curse of a Scrimshaw doll:

In the late seventeenth century, a zealously protective father feared his daughter’s betrothed would betray her. A gypsy attempted to hex the girl with this spell: All those who betray you will suffer. Only true love can break the curse. The child was holding a doll her father had fashioned out of some mysterious bone.  As luck would have it, the curse was buried within the doll and carried on through the centuries. Our first installment picks up with the young woman’s daughter, who inherited the doll.

These stories, in various genres, were published with The Wild Rose Press as individual releases but have now been combined in two boxed sets, each containing five stories.

My historical western, Trail of Hope, has been included in the first boxed set, Cursed, which is now available through Amazon or The Wild Rose Press. Here’s the lineup for each boxed set:

About Heidi Vanlandingham

My favorite genres are paranormal and historical fiction. When I'm not watching my son play baseball, I'm writing, reading, and spending as much time as I can with him--he's growing up entirely too fast!
