Low Down Dirty Vote Vol. 3: The Color of My Vote is OUT

The third volume of the Low Down Dirty Vote anthology is out, and, as one of the contributing authors I can assure you that it's a doozy, from cover to cover! Here's a quick summary pulled from the IndieBound site (where you can also buy a copy from your favorite indie bookstore):

This charity anthology includes 22 stories of crime and suspense by 22 authors: many award-winners, some publishing for the first time in a short story anthology. The publisher donates 100% of the proceeds to Democracy Docket, an organization that is successfully fighting against voter suppression in the United States.
Authors from the US, India, Germany, and the UK have crafted visions of the past, present, and future of democracy with tales that range from comic to tragic and from cozy to noir. You'll also find a few stories blended with science fiction, horror, and fantasy. Each author shares their take on the theme: the color of my vote. We know it shouldn't matter, but somehow it still does.

Finally, you can view the two Crowdcast videos recorded on book-launch day, May 15, in which some of the authors talk about their stories and why they wrote them: 

These sessions were recorded and are now available for viewing.

For more information about the three anthologies and buy links, check out the Low Down Dirty Vote site.

P.S. My modest offering for this third anthology is a story titled (ahem) "Winning by a Whisker: A Paw-litical Tale." Yes, puns abound in this little narrative about dog owners and cat owners squaring off in a (purely fictional) small town over an upcoming mayoral election.
