A year ago, due to the hard work and dedication of friend and author, Edie Ramer, as well as a host of others, a very special anthology was published.
ENTANGLED is a labor of love, with ten short stories and one novella, all following a paranormal Halloween theme, and the full profit from the sales of the anthology go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I, along with a number of other Magical Musings co-bloggers, am one of the contributors, and am thrilled to report that the anthology has made $11,321.91 for the BCRF over the year it’s been up for sale.
We published it to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I am humbled and awed that we were able to make so much money for such a wonderful cause, and hope the next year brings in just as much or more.
Thanks has to go to the contributors, as well as Lori Devoti, who made sure the book played nice across all ereading platforms, Laura Morrigan for the amazing cover, and Liz Steiner for handling the money end of things. All of this was time and skills they donated to the cause.
To everyone who bought a copy of ENTANGLED, thank you for your contribution to this amazing cause. We are all touched in some way by cancer. Everyone involved in the anthology had a story to tell, including Stacia Kane, who wrote the foreword.
My dear friend, Liz Kreger, who is a critique partner and fellow blogger here at MM, has been struggling with cancer for years, but continues to be one of the most positive people I know. My grandfather, my mother-in-law and my aunt have all been taken by cancer, and anything I can do to help find a cure for this disease is something I’m proud of.
We’d love to hear your stories here, and perhaps you can nominate a friend or relative who is either helping to care for someone with cancer or who has cancer themselves, who might like to read a copy. I’ll give away two copies to two randomly-drawn nominations. You can nominate more than one person, but please make each nomination a separate comment.
