The newest issue of online magazine Shades of the Departed is now available, featuring 110 pages of outstanding content from nine contributors. I am honored to be in such good company writing short fiction as Miss Penelope Dreadful.
Editor footnoteMaven opens this issue with a beautiful farewell message to two Shades contributors, my mother Suzanne Mercy Winsor Brown and The Graveyard Rabbit Terry Thornton. Terry was the first Shades columnist and a chief instigator in The Graveyard Rabbits Association. Suzanne was a happy one-time contributor to Twice Told Tuesday in 2009 with a birthday surprise for me. Thank you, fM, for a beautiful tribute.
This issue comes just in time for the California Family History Expo October 8-9 which will feature a live podcast by Lisa Louise Cooke highlighting Shades of the Departed. If you can't make it to Pleasanton, you can hear the podcast on Lisa's Genealogy Gems show.
