I just got my paperback copy of Christmas Lites III and I have to say this is the most beautiful anthology I have ever held. The typography and graphics inside are crisp and perfectly laid out.
The cover, by Kyra Cato, is stunning. The title art by Crystal Bozeman Clifton is rich and lovely. The authors that participated are some of the best there is and range from experienced NY Times bestsellers to brand new talent waiting to be discovered.
Compiled by Amy Eye, I have to say this is more orchestrated rather than “compiled.” This is a work of literary art, visually, literally. The richness comes through in the stories and art. The cause is a worthy one – every penny from this book goes to fight domestic violence with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, ncadv.org.
I am so proud to be included in the Christmas Lites anthologies, my third year of involvement. It means a lot to me to be able to do what I love to help make a difference.
