Through the Portal
S. R. Karfelt
My fellow bloggers over at Read Write Muse
asked me to be part of an anthology to raise money for cancer charity. They
said, “The theme is portals, would you be willing to write a story for it, and
donate the profit?” As soon as I heard the word portal I was in. But I played hard to get. “If I can title my story
Portal Potty, I will,” said I. There
was a moment of silence, and I suspect some head shaking, but they’re the best
of the best and they said, “Sure, Stephanie.”
They humor me a lot, but that’s not why I love
them so much. I love them because they’re my Scenius, my peeps, and both my
circus and my monkeys. And I’m kinda jazzed and proud of our first
collaborative effort. You will be surprised when you read Portal Potty too. While the title is glib, and a bit tongue in
cheek, it’s actually a serious story, with absolutely nothing fantastical. It’s
a story about epiphanies reached in the loo.
The portal experts at Read Write Muse invite

Jump through time to new worlds, indulge in
pizza, chocolate, and romance. Fight evil villains, transport with innocent

R. Karfelt, Kelsey Keating, D. M. Kilgore, Emily Ogle, Natalie J. Pierson, and
Read Write Muse will donate $1 per book sale
to a cancer related charity for one year. (And you cannot imagine the logistical quagmire it is for a group of writers to donate book proceeds! If any of us go missing, check for us in a marshy moor of mucky paperwork. Whew!)
