Silly Tree Anthologies

Publisher info

Silly Tree Anthologies began as the brainchild of Angel Sharum who wanted to find a way to give new authors a chance to be published alongside more seasoned authors. Since two heads are always better than one and publishing can be expensive, Angel decided she needed a partner for the venture. After searching for a while, Cathy MacKenzie volunteered to join her. Scared Spitless is the debut anthology for Silly Tree.

Despite what may look like an easy feat, there is a tremendous amount of work put into a project such as this. Angel and Cathy must promote, weed through the submissions, arrange for editing and work with the editor, review the “finished” product numerous times, organize and format the books, deal with authors...well, you get the gist. However, to steal a cliché, this is their labor of love. They have both wanted to do a venture such as this for several years.

Both Angel and Cathy are avid readers and writers. Between them, they have had numerous writings published and both maintain an active internet presence, with their blogs and Facebook author pages.

A photo really is worth a thousand words. We at Silly Tree Anthologies challenged poets to write a poem based on the image of a wooden swing like the one that graces the cover of this book. We didn’t want poems about swings though; we wanted poems about the feelings porch swings invoke, the memories they bring back and the heartache they conjure up. The poets did a wonderful job.
