Monday dawned a new month and an exciting accomplishment for many of us here at NAF. Splashdown Books released it’s first ever anthology titled Aquasynthesis. Paul, Kat and Keven each have three stories between the pages. And Robynn and I were allowed to try out our assistant editing skills. The beautiful cover was designed by Keven’s wife Deanna Newsome.
