"From the Stars"
Welcome to YABC, Authors!
YABC: Tell us about From the Stars and how it came to be.
From the Stars authors: First, thank you for this opportunity! From the Stars is a YA Science Fiction Anthology of complete short stories. No cliffhangers or series teasers here, just good, entertaining short and satisfying reads, perfect for this busy time of year. We guarantee readers will find their next favorite authors in From the Stars.
Authors Jenetta Penner and David Bernstein are the masterminds behind this anthology. They hand selected each story based on how well it fit the genre and how addicting the story was from the first page. They did an amazing job choosing from a huge selection of stories submitted from the YA indie author community. The result is an exciting compilation of fourteen Sci-Fi stories, spanning 400+ pages.
