What Are People Saying about A Shaker of Margaritas: Hot Flash Mommas?

 Shaker of Margaritas: Hot Flash Mommas: This anthology has just come out of Mozark Press, and it's brimming with wonderful stories about the forty or older woman and her search for happiness, or love, passion or perhaps revenge.

I’m not sure what each character is searching for because I haven't had time to read each and every story. But I've enjoyed the ones I've read so far. And I'm so glad that this story of mine found a home there. There's a little piece of me in that forty-something woman who bumps into a long-ago lover in the Senoritas. -Cathy C. Hall "The Funny Thing in The Bathroom at Casa Del Rio." You can read the the full blog post at

Holding my copy of A SHAKER OF MARGARITAS: HOT FLASH MOMMAS in my hand, I'm wowed by the sheer beauty of this printed book - it elevates words into art, and I'm so honored to be a part of it. - Kathy Holmes - "Viva Las Vegas"

It's an honor to have my story, "Criminal Minds," included in A Shaker of Margaritas: Hot Flash Mommas. The anthology is a professional publication from front to back cover, and I've enjoyed reading the stories inside. Thanks for letting me be a part of such a delightful publishing experience.
Cheers! - Donna Volkenannt

Why am I promoting it?
There's a story called House of Wreckers that I wrote (many moons ago) in it. PLUS--After reading some of the shorts (I'm not through reading all of them cause my daughter swiped it from me), I have to say it's captivating, especially for women (even young girls). And it's not sleazy pornography, just good clean fun. . . . So...check it out. It may turn out to be the next Chicken Soup series. - Kaela Montano

I entered the Shaker of Margaritas anthology contest almost on a whim and didn't really expect anything to come of it. My story seemed to just about write itself while I was vacationing in a peaceful Tennessee state park last summer. Now I am published and have my own author's copy to prove it's real!  I've almost finished reading the book and I've developed quite a new appreciation for the judges, as well as further amazement that my story is included. I keep wondering "why didn't this one win" and then "why didn't that one win?" That is in no way a criticism of those great stories that did place in the top three, but just recognition that so many "winners" are in the book! Can't wait to see what follows!! – Kathryn Coit “Stepping out in Hope.”
