We have a guest post today–part of Author Tag Blog Tour. Welcome to On a Pale Star, Liz Kreger!
My name is Liz Kreger, and I’m one of eleven authors whose short story appears in the anthology Entangled. This is a collection of paranormal stories which is being released exclusively in e-format. Every bit of it … from the cover, to the Foreword provided by Stacia Kane, to the individual stories, everything was donated and 100% of the proceeds are to go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). My story is titled “Feel the Magic”.
It was a thrill to be asked to participate in this anthology … not only because I was given the opportunity to work with such talented authors, but because this cause — breast cancer — is so close to my heart. You see, I’m a fifteen year breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed when I was 35 years old, went through a mastectomy, reconstruction and then spent nearly 7 years cancer free. In 2002 it was discovered that the cancer had metasticized to my hip, my lower back, my skull and my liver. For the past nine years I’ve been actively battling this bitch. Last Friday I just started a new round of chemo cocktails called Abraxine. I figure in the past year alone, I’ve been on 7 or 8 different chemos … some work for awhile, some not at all. It’s a matter of finding the right combination to combat my particular brand of cancer.
So, you see how important this cause is to me. If you ask anyone, I’m sure you’ll find in some way, shape or form, that person has been touched by cancer. Whether it was their mother, their aunt, their sister … whoever. Cancer has a way of invading our lives and in many cases, take away those we love.
I hope you enjoy Entangled as much as I enjoyed contributing a story to it. The authors are all incredibly talented … and I’d like to introduce Dale Mayer whose short story, “Sian’s Solution”, appears in Entangled. Dale is a fabulous author who writes both romantic suspense and young adult. Her romantic suspense, Tuesday’s Child, was just released and sounds like a total winner.
Dale will be appearing tomorrow at Sugar Beat’s Books.
FEEL THE MAGIC by Liz Kreger (author of the Part of Tomorrow series) — Jenna Carmichael’s magical attempt to rectify Jessica Manfield’s birth identity takes an unexpected turn when the past comes back to haunt her.

Thank you ever so much for allowing me to participate in this Author Tag blog tour. It was a new experience for me and I’m having a ball. Take care.
