Legacy... announced!

What will you leave behind when you're gone?

This intriguing theme is being explored in a new anthology, aptly named Legacy, that yours truly is contributing to! As you know, I've written two memoirs, but other than the odd dabble here and there, this will be my first published fiction piece. It's scary and exciting and totally fun!

The idea for this project came about from friend, fellow author, and partner in Velvet Morning Press, Adria J. Cimino, along with Allison from The Book Wheel, as a result of their collaboration on the #30Authors event. Some amazing authors are coming together for this anthology and it promises to be a great book.

Here is the list of authors:

Regina Calcaterra, author of Etched in Sand
Kristopher Jansma, author of The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards
Jenny Milchman, author of Cover of Snow and Ruin Falls
Marissa Stapley, author of Mating for Life
Paula Lee, author of Deer Hunting in Paris: A Memoir of God, Guns, and Game Meat
J.J. Hensley, author of Resolve and Measure Twice
Maureen Foley, author of Women Float
Didier Quémener, contributor to anthologies That's Paris and Mystery in Mind
Stephanie Carroll, author of A White Room
David Whitehouse, author of In Search of Rwandais Genocidaires: French Justice and the Lost Decades
Piper Punches, author of The Waiting Room and Missing Girl
Lizzie Harwood, author of soon-to-be-released short story collection Triumph
Vicki Lesage, author of Confessions of a Paris Party Girl and Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer
Adria J. Cimino, author of Paris, Rue des Martyrs (re-release January 2015)

Two super cool things I want to point out:

- All author proceeds are being donated to Paws for Reading. It's awesome to be able to support a great charity by doing what I love--writing and publishing books! And they're excited to be working with us too!

- We'll be tweeting about the writing process, our inspiration, and much more throughout the month of January. Just follow #30Authors to jump in on the conversation--you can get a behind-the-scenes look at the writing process!
