There is this quote from a very well known romance, that I am sure you all know. I won’t quote it, but it has something to do with men’s wealth, and what he must want once he has that wealth. You know the one, right? I’m going to co-opt the idea for this blog post.
“It is a truth widely known, that a reader who needs a new book, must want to read mine.”
All authors feel this way. It’s the truth of #authorslife. You write so that someone will read your book. Someone will love it, connect with it, share it. And then sometimes you write for that reason, as well as another. Sometimes the lone writer meets a group of like minded individuals. And then an amazing idea is formed, an anthology! All of us super cool writers working together to make one giant (it is, I’ve seen it) book of all of our stories.
To this extent we came up with Unwrapping Love a Writing Wenches Anthology. Twenty-one stories on a heat scale of one snowflake (sweet) to four (steamy) snowflakes. A wide arrangement of stories, each with a bad guy/girl and a good girl/guy, because it’s always fun to see how that works out. In the beginning there were more, but a few wenches had to drop out due to previous entanglements, but I believe that the book we ended up with is amazing.
To go from point A (the idea) to point B (fruition) was crazy. The original wench who had the idea had to bow out, and then the wicked ladies of PageCurl stepped in. We had meetings. We had crazy, amusing long posts on social media, and maybe a tear or two (editing, phew) but through it all, we had support. A group of others like us, who spoke our language, who understood our problems, and who cheered us on.
There are not enough words for how amazing an experience it was. Even when it was all work, all the time, it was still fun. And fun, is the single most important part of this, or at least in my mind. I have fun talking to these wenches. I have fun working with them. What more could a budding author ask for?
