Our Front Porch

The other day I was thinking about our front porch in Montague, Michigan. Growing up it was used as a gathering place where people were welcomed, listened to, encouraged to share, and I believe, felt loved. I never really understood the significance of all of this until mom and dad were gone, and I could no longer sit on that front porch.

A Special Book

Our library in Montague, MI was above the firehouse.  I was happy to know I could go there and check out fun books to read. We didn’t have a television so our activities were simple. Reading became an important part of our lives.

One day my father said he had a surprise for me. “I want to show you something, Adele. I’m going to take you to a place where there are many books! We’re going to go to Grossman’s.” (Grossman’s was a very popular department store in Muskegon, MI).

The Darkest Hour by Kaye George

Day-of-the-Dark---cover

This is the first part of my own story that will appear in DAY OF THE DARK: Eclipse Stories, coming in July from Wildside Press:

 

I think it was on a Saturday afternoon when Tom got the bright idea to rent out our spare room for the eclipse. I wish I’d just killed him then. I can see now that my desire totally eclipsed my judgment.

“Look at the path!” He waved a printout in front of me so that I couldn’t see it. “It’s coming right over our house. People will pay to stay here. We can rake it in.”

When I grabbed the paper from him, I saw that the solar eclipse was going to be total where we lived, south of Knoxville, but it wasn’t going to be total for the maximum amount of time.

“People are going to want to go south, where it lasts longer, Tom.” I had to call him “Tom” to keep from calling him “Idiot.” Tom had gotten a lot of hare-brained ideas during our four years of marriage, and this looked like it was going to be another one.

“No, they’ll pay to stay here. I know they will.”

Proud to be an American

Almost every day I put our American flag out at dawn and take it down at dusk. I often think of my dad and our neighbor Mr. Ford.  I was very young when I first noticed Mr. Ford, early in the morning, raising the American flag on his tall flagpole.  I watched as he pulled that flag higher and higher until it was waving high in the sky.  He secured it tight and then stood back and saluted. At dusk I would see him go outside, and slowly lower the flag, fold it neatly and go inside.  I remember asking my dad why Mr. Ford did this every day, weather permitting.

My Last Eclipse Teasers by Kaye George

Day-of-the-Dark---cover

I’m happy this series has been successful and my readers have enjoyed it so much. This is the 6th and last group of 4 tidbits of eclipse stories that will appear in DAY OF THE DARK, the short story anthology of eclipse-based stories coming out July 21st from Wildside Press.

 

We reached the eastern shore with the last story from last week, so these are others that aren’t in order of the path of totality, or even in the same century or on the same continent sometimes. Without further ado, here is the last batch of the 24 stories:

More Eclipse Teasers by Kaye George

Day-of-the-Dark---cover

The place I first heard of the upcoming total solar eclipse (coming closer every day!) was on Earth and Sky. http://earthsky.org/ In fact, I subscribe to their posts and get them every day. If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve probably seen me repost some of their things. I’ve always been fascinated by what’s up there in the sky—and by what’s down here on the earth.

 

The 24 authors who contributed to DAY OF THE DARK, our short story anthology of eclipse-based stories, decided to give some of the proceeds to charity. Guess what I chose? You’re right, Earth and Sky! Two others chose that, too. We’re a varied group, so we have a lot of different interests. Here are the charities that will benefit from our sales:

 

I like to say that these donations are going to these great causes in the spirit of light and life: Earth and Sky, Petconnect Rescue, Natural Resources Defense Council, Science Center in Finland, DonorsChoose.org, Friends of Goldendale Observatory, Friends of the Earth, Morehead Planetarium, Texas Museum of Science and Techonology, DAPCEP.org for STEM education for future astronomers and scientists in Detroit, and personal friends in need. 

 

Here are teasers for 4 more stories, coming out July 21st, a month before the total solar eclipse in North America, from Wildside Press.

Love the cover. The touch of red makes it pop even more. I'll mark July 21 on my calendar for the first Eclipse.

More Eclipse Glimpses by Kaye George

 

 

As the moon starts its journey, the journey that will eventually completely cover the face of the sun, you can watch the light dim around you, so very gradually. If you’re watching the sun and the moon, be SURE to wear eclipse glasses. $5 at Earth and Sky. https://earthskystore.org/collections/frontpage/products/eclipse-glasses

 

Also be sure to visit here every Wednesday so you’ll catch the cover reveal for Day of the Dark, 24 short stories centered around eclipses, mostly solar, but some lunar. There’s sure to be something for everyone here with some of the stories as different as night and day.

 

Wildside Press will release the book July 21st, a month before the coming total solar eclipse in North America. I gave you a bit about 4 of the stories last week. Here are some samplings of 4 more:

Aha! And to whom do they rent the room? And what influence does this mysterious lodger have on our young woman? Transplant this to Thirsk in Yorkshire and it sounds like an episode of Masterpiece Mystery. Can't wait for the release.

“The Darkest Hour” by yours truly, Kaye George, is set in my own town of Farragut (which is part of Knoxville TN) and I hope has enough of a twist for you. A young woman's judgment is eclipsed by her intense inner desires when her husband decides to ...
