When author Charlotte Bennardo submitted her short story ALICE THROUGH THE WORMHOLE to Leap's BEWARE THE LITTLE WHITE RABBIT anthology call, we got a bit starry-eyed. Not only is Char a great writer with a number of popular novels under her belt (SIRENZ, BLONDE OPS, and SIRENZ BACK IN FASHION) and with more in the works, she's also a delightfully friendly person.
But, as editors of an anthology, we can't afford to fangirl. Business is business, and strong stories are strong stories. And that's all we were willing to accept for our homage to Lewis Carroll's ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. When marking a 150th anniversary celebration editors tend to get picky.
And Char's story was what we hoped for!
Are you a fan of science fiction? Or someone who truly appreciates a fine tea? You'll want to turn to ALICE THROUGH THE WORMHOLE first.

Goodreads giveaway, a Facebook event, and a Twitter party (watch #Beware) before that happens. Lot's going on, but that's okay because...
