Two Audience-Building Multi-Author Projects

As I’m looking to grow my audience reach, I’m excited to be participating in a few multi-author projects.

Hidden

A group of at least fifteen authors have come together to write a story with the title of “Hidden.” Each of us has selected a week to release our project beginning October 26th. This is a great way to cross promote and keep our books visible long after falling off the Amazon 30 day new release list.

I wrote my first draft of my story, Hidden: A Pregnant Fairy Godmother’s Journey during the April Camp NaNoWriMo. Now, I finalized my cover, and I wanted to share it.

Ta Da!

I made it myself. (I just discovered Paint.net, and I LOVE it!) My first draft of my blurb is also posted below.

Hidden: A Pregnant Fairy Godmother’s Journey…

Hidden Final

Even being the best fairy godmother in all the land, Ciera’s been hiding a secret. Not only is she pregnant, but she’s pregnant from a human.

Humans are not allowed in the fairy realm. Period. That includes half-fairy half-human babies. The only solution is to give the baby to its father before the Fairy Council finds out her secret. Finding the father should be easy, how many men named John could possibly live in this place called Chicago?

Instead of finding John, she runs into a thief who’s hiding a secret of his own. Can the two team up to solve each other’s problems, no matter how crazy they may be?

To stay up to date on the stories in this series, publishing dates, check out the Hidden Landing Page or Facebook Page. (Also, if you’re an author and would like to participate, please let me know.)

Multi-Author Anthology

The other projects I’m working on are two anthologies. One is a cozy supernatural Halloween project and the other is a Twelve Days of Christmas anthology.

Both projects will have a group of authors published in a single book. Each with a separate story that fits the theme. This should be a lot less work than the Hidden project, as I plan to write 5000 word stories for both.

The Halloween Anthology will take place in my Superhero World…and will feature a Witch. I believe the book will be titled, Witch or Treat.

The Twelve Days of Christmas Anthology will feature twelve authors, each taking a day from the classic song. My story will be titled Three Calling Birds and is completely undeveloped at this point.

I’m excited about the possibility of gaining new readers from my stories in these anthologies.

 

I can’t wait for these projects to come to a close so I can share my results with you.

Have you participated in multi author writing projects? I’d love to hear how they went.
