A New Fantasy Anthology For Shawn

As many of you know, I — Shawn Speakman — was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma last year. It was a rough year but I prevailed and now I’m healthier than ever.

The problem is this: I didn’t have health insurance. I quickly gained a massive financial debt from the surgeries and treatment. But rather than declare medical bankruptcy as so many have to do in my situation, I decided to create an anthology and called on my writer friends to contribute.

Naomi was one of them!

Here is my press release about it as well as how you can help out!

Naomi answered the call like the rest of my friends did. I decided to create and publish a fantasy anthology, titled Unfettered, with some of the best genre authors writing right now. The anthology is going to be fantastic and Naomi will be writing a new Temeraire short story for it. As you can imagine, I’m thrilled, as I love Temeraire and Laurence.

Proceeds from the anthology Unfettered will go to alleviating my medical debt. I am also publishing my own fantasy novel, The Dark Thorn, to help. You can read an excerpt from that and purchase now if you like. Unfettered will go on pre-order sale in a month or two.

Thanks for reading! It means a lot to me!
