Say Something Anthology

21 Nov

Have you ever been moved by the lyrics of a song? In this anthology, seven authors of various genres listened to A Big New World’s evocative hit song, “Say Something” – and used their interpretation of the words as inspiration for a short story. Contemporary to paranormal to historical, enjoy a wide variety of characters and settings, all with the same basic theme:  say something.

Same theme–different takes on it

17 Nov

When you put together creative minds something spectacular comes out: an anthology of wonderful stories meant to make you fall in love with fictional heroes and heroines. From as far as Henry the VIII’s regal court to modern day, from angels and demons to urban fantasy to alpha males and sassy women these short stories have as a common theme A great Big World’s song Say Something.

Some songs really touch my heart and Say Something is one of them. When I first heard it, it made me pause. The lyrics gave me goosebumps, almost like a cry of desperation and pain. Watching the video totally sealed the deal for me: I will one day write a story about it. 

That day came sooner than I expected when I was invited to participate in the romance anthology called . . . Say Something, along with six other amazing authors. Its release day is fast approaching on December 1st, 2014 and I encourage you all to get a copy at only .99cents, for a limited time only. Find it on Amazon and B&N.

Say Something–The making of a story

10 Nov

FBbannerSometime in April of this year I found myself surrounded by a bunch of friends as creative as I am: authors. For a few days while at the Desert Rose Writers Conference we breathed, ate and drunk … writing and loved every bit of it.

“Guess what?” Morgan Kearns came one morning to give me a hug.

“What?” I returned the hug, then hugged Kris Tualla and Deena Remiel, one of my favorite trio in the writing world.

“We are gonna write short stories based on A Great Big World’s song ‘Say Something.’ Then release them as an anthology. Take over Amazon and all the charts. What do you think?” Morgan said, eyes sparkling.

“Oh, I looooooooove that song. That’s too cool!” I said, my mind already humming the song.

“You in?” Morgan continued.

I glanced from Morgan to Kris to Deena, not believing my ears. “Really? You want me in it?”

Morgan thumbed my shoulder. “Not you, your story, silly.”

I pretended to wipe my forehead. “Oh, geez, I was worried for a second there thinking you want me in it. That’s what you said, right?”

Morgan rolled her eyes while we all laughed. I was ecstatic about being included, but also honored they thought my writing was good enough to be part of such a project.

My Muse shadowed me for a few days afterward. I took advantage of her presence and went hard to work. I had started Oscar and Grace’s tale a few years ago but never finished it. Somehow their romance fitted the Say Something theme and so their story took off on its own.

Fast forward to present day. Oscar and Grace are ready to entertain you in the short story titled “Meant To Be” as part of the anthology called “Say Something.” The anthology will come out December 1st, at a super low price, only .99cents available on Amazon, B&N and Smashwords. But hurry up! After Jan. 1st 2015 the price will go up to $2.99.
