Badurday- September 10, 2011- ENTANGLED

Today we take a bit of a break from Badurday so I can tell you all about a cool anthology that comes out on Monday. Some of my friends have written stories with a Halloween theme and the proceeds for the book are going to be donated for breast cancer research. Here’s some info on it- oh, and at the end, I rewarded you for reading all this with a picture of the man I used as the inspiration for my new book that will be coming out in April 2012.  It’s called The Gambler and is the first in a series of three to be released over the space of a year by Desert Breeze Publishing.   

Ghosts, vampires, demons, and more! Entangled includes ten suspense-filled paranormal short stories from authors Cynthia Eden, Jennifer Estep, Edie Ramer, Lori Brighton, Michelle Diener, Misty Evans, Nancy Haddock, Liz Kreger, Dale Mayer, and Michelle Miles, plus a Seven Deadly Sins novella by Allison Brennan.

 Stacia Kane contributed the foreword. Formatting and cover art were also donated to the project by Lori Devoti and Laura Morrigan.

 All proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

 Q: Tell us about Entangled.

A: Entangled includes ten suspense-filled paranormal stories from authors Lori Brighton, Michelle Diener, Cynthia Eden, Jennifer Estep, Misty Evans, Nancy Haddock, Liz Kreger, Dale Mayer, Michelle Miles, and Edie Ramer, plus a brand new Seven Deadly Sins novella by Allison Brennan. Stacia Kane contributed the foreword and the book’s formatting and cover art were also donated to the project by Lori Devoti and Laura Morrigan. All proceeds from the sale of Entangled will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

 Q: Are the stories connected?

A: The anthology has a Halloween theme, so the stories all have Halloween elements in them.

 Q: Are they all one genre?

A: All the stories paranormal, but some are heavier on suspense, while others have more romance. We even have a young adult story by Jennifer Estep that’s related to herMythosAcademyseries.

 Q: How did you all come up with the decision to do this book? Who initiated it and how did you all get together?

A: Edie Ramer and Misty Evans wanted to do a collaboration together, and over three or four emails earlier this year, they decided to do a paranormal anthology of short stories and have the proceeds go to breast cancer. They invited authors whose books they read and enjoyed, and the response was overwhelmingly positive.

 Q: Tell us more about the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

A: BCRF-funded research has helped save lives and improved the quality of care and rate of survival for tens of thousands of breast cancer patients in the past decade. Their research has revealed that the “cure” is a mosaic made up of as many approaches to diagnosing, treating, preventing and surviving as there are different types of breast cancer. The anthology is also a mosaic made up of many stories donated for this worthwhile cause.

 Q: Is there a time limit on purchasing Entangled so the proceeds go to the BCRF?

A: Entangled will available for at least a year and all proceeds will go to BCRF, no matter when it’s purchased. After a year, if it’s still selling well, we’ll keep it available, and again, all proceeds will go to BCRF.

 Q: How much will the ebook cost?

A: Entangled will be discounted to $2.99 during September and October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. After that the price will go up to $3.99. For stories of this caliber, it’s a fantastic deal at either price.

 Q: Can people donate to the cause even if they can’t or don’t want to purchase Entangled?

A: Absolutely. Go to  http://www.bcrfcure.org to make a donation in your name, or in the name of someone you know who’s been touched by breast cancer.

  4. Thanks for posting this about the anthology! I’m so excited to be part of it. 🙂

  5. Wonderful review, Jillian. Thanx ever so much for posting this.

    Having all the proceeds on this anthology go to BCRF is so exciting. Breast cancer touches almost everyone at some point in their lives … whether its a friend, a relative or yourself entering this battle. Finding a cure is so important to countless women (and men).

    I’m thrilled to be part of Entangled. The company of authors that I’m with is stellar and I can faithfully say that every story is fabulous.

    • Liz- you’re absolutely right. We’ve all bwwn touched by this disease. I’ve lost several loved ones to it. I think it’s great that you all came up with this anthology and idea to give the funds to BCRF. Kudos to you all.
