Flocking up

EQ coverI may have mentioned earlier that nearly a dozen authors in my Exquisite Quills group are working on a joint venture — a Holiday Anthology.

I noticed last year that holiday stories have a huge following. I’ve too many irons in the fire right now to do more than a short story myself, so I thought.. wouldn’t it be nice to flock up and do a group project? Flocking…I think I’ve heard too many geese flying overhead today. lol

I pitched the idea, it was well received, and so we go. Our stories go from 500 – 2000 words and are all-holiday themed, that is, all holidays occurring from the day after Thanksgiving to New Years day.

Super-creative Carey Abbott volunteered her talents for this great winter cover. Others are willing to edit. Someone else is helping with the publishing. We’ll offer it for free on any and all channels and see what comes back. If nothing else, we’ll warm some hearts. My story actually made me cry. And I wrote it! I wove the fiction around the facts, just like I do for all of my stories. The facts involved are near and dear to my heart because they concern the little old house I worked on 2 days a week for 10 years and helped restore. I’ll explain more when the book is released.

If all goes well, the Exquisite Quills Holiday Anthology should be in print by November 1st. I’ll keep you posted.
