Hey everyone hope you have been enjoying the blog hop posts so far.
I was scrolling one day on the Writing Wenches group feed and saw the thread that said how about let’s all write an anthology. Crazy right? A group of writers who the majority have not met in person write a collection of stories together? I mean what if nobody could agree on anything? Or what if the anthology comes out to be absolutely horrible? (Which btw after reading the whole thing we have such talented writers in this group.)
I decided to join this adventure. Being that I have only self-published two short stories I am very much a beginner author. That’s actually one of the things that made working on this anthology so much fun. There were a group of published authors, some with little experience and some with none.
We were all helpful and considerate and cheering each other on as we wrote this anthology. To my knowledge I think we are the only writing group that has done an anthology together.
There were some tears and blood shed (not at all literal (but you get the picture). I have learned so much from this venture and gained so many new friends in the process. You hear a lot in the writing business that you have to write such and such amount of words and it’s just so much more than that. Anyway our finished product was twenty one short stories in an anthology called Unwrapping Love.
My contribution to the anthology was a short story called Winters Gift.
It is about a firefighter named Scott and a school teacher named Mel who despite baggage fall for each other.
Here is a teaser
We are already at work and brain storming at for the next anthology. Crazy right? I don’t think so. Well, maybe just a little.
I wanted to give a special thank you to Rachel Medhurst (twitter name @rachelmedhurst) for giving us the idea.
And to Patricia Eddy and Samantha Williams of PageCurl http://www.pagecurl.net for all the help and editing and marketing.
And to The Writing Wenches (@writingwenches) (http:///www.writingwenches.com) you guys, I honestly don’t know what I would do without you guys. Most of my online time is spent on the group. You guys are so different but the same and I am l glad that I was granted the privilege to meeting you all. World Domination very soon.
Well that’s it from me, there are more wenches telling about their experience with this project in form of a blog hop.
