Frances Pauli's story "Domestic Violence" appears in Domesticated Velociraptors (The Midnight Writers' Anthology Book 1).

The second volume of Civilized Beasts, the poetry anthology from Weasel Press, sent out acceptances in November. FWG poets in the volume include Altivo Overo, Madison "Makyo" Scott-Clary and Televassi.

Televassi sold a story to Fred Patten's anthology Dogs of War.

Odds and ends

Thanks to everyone who participated in Furry Book Month! Stay tuned for future promotions.

The Tuesday Coffeehouse Chats continue to take place on the FWG Slack channel, while the Thursday chats continue to take place on the shoutbox. There may be changes coming to the chat schedule next year, and changes in forum software are under consideration–which may kill the shoutbox completely. Watch the current forum for more information and weigh in if you have an opinion!

As usual, we'd like to keep recruiting you to the FWG Goodreads group: add things to our members' bookshelf (see the instructions here on how to do that), start conversations, draw rabbit ears on other authors' head shots, and so on.

Have a terrific month and holiday season! Send news, suggestions, feedback, and coffee to, or leave a comment below.
