Written Tales Chapbook VI is a collection to bring back childhood memories of the Holiday Season. This edition contains beautiful poems, short stories, and non-fiction from the heart. – Written Tales Magazine

Winter's Vindication

“In these nine stories of frost and snow, join a collection of survivors as they fight to overcome nuclear winter, 100 years of ice, elder gods, frozen deities, a town ruled by thugs, and more.” -SummerStorm Press

The anthology includes my story, The Snow Warrior.

Createspace, 2017

“… a heartwarming read about a woman with an unquenchable joy for life, who lived each day to the fullest despite her challenges and invited others to do the same.”

-Sandra Cox, Amazon Review

Saddleback Publishing, 2018

“This series of books was designed specifically for struggling teen readers. What starts out as fun or routine becomes a nightmare, real or imagined. As characters are tested in mind, body, and spirit, readers have a sense of being there to experience the adventure.”

– Saddleback Publishing

Blood Stitches-highres
Kensington/Lyrical, 2015

 Erin Fanning’s Blood Stitches brings a unique twist to the well-loved paranormal genre. Elements of Mayan mythology add freshness to the story, and Fanning’s writing stands out, crisp and clean.

Persea Books, 2011

Sam’s Dot, 2008

“The stories were intense and kept me glued. There’s also a vividness in the telling. I’m a big fan of suspense/horror/fantasy. And I love it when it’s especially different and well done, which I think this was.”

– Lori Sawicki, publisher and author, Identity Novels

“Fanning brings the flesh and bone and blood of her characters to the pages for the reader.”

-Brick Marlin, Goodreads. Read the rest of the review here.
