Silver Linings Background 

Last March 2020, LitArtHub issued a call for submission for short fiction with the prompt, “Love in the time of CoVid.”  After a rigid selection process, eight works out of over thirty submissions were picked to be included in our first Anthology. My story, as well as Katie’s were added to complete the final ten.
