Being “Unshod”

unshod

Unshod – Without shoes, barefoot.

To me, “unshod” invites images of dancing barefoot in soft green grass, or perhaps on a sandy beach. A deeper meaning might be the joy of freeing oneself of whatever it is that binds.

I’m not sure if that’s what the editors of the new anthology, Unshod, had in mind, but I think perhaps so. In the editors’ words, Unshod is “a book filled with traditional and contemporary western stories in which the characters are lain bare.” Now that’s freedom!

I’ve read many of the following authors’ works and look forward to reading their stories in Unshod. I’m honored to be included!

Pamela Foster
Staci Troilo
Joan Hall
P.C. Zick
Janna Hill
Michele Jones
Frances Guenette
Lorna Faith

    Jan, I am honored to be a part of this anthology along with such talented writers. I adored your story! I believe that if we don’t learn history, we’re doomed to repeat the same mistakes and the story of the young Japanese/American girl and her family is a prime example of how we, as a nation, failed.

    Love your imagery Jan: “…dancing barefoot in soft green grass, or perhaps on a sandy beach. A deeper meaning might be the joy of freeing oneself of whatever it is that binds.”

    It was an honour and such fun to be included in this anthology with you Jan, and all the other authors! I’m going to read through the stories this weekend 🙂
