Anthologies including stories from different authors seem to be becoming more and more popular. They are a great way for authors to get their book in front of a new audience, take advantage of joint promotions, increase visibility. And they’re a great way for readers to try new authors in their favorite genres, usually at little expense.
I have a story, Release Me, in a paranormal romance anthology coming out in February.
20 Shades of Shifter is a limited edition collection of new and exclusive paranormal romance novels guaranteed to suck in you from page one.
A shape-shifting dragon must win over his reluctant mate and stop Jack the Ripper. A Fae trucker becomes allies with an MC member when trying to deliver magical motorcycles to the Fae Queen. A wolf shifter is held captive in a human research lab where he is tortured until he meets one sexy scientist. An angel risked it all to steal the elixir of life and save his mortal love’s life and over two millennia later must get her to remember she once loved an angel. These stories and many more are included in this steamy, hot collection.
Mine’s the angel story and it’s book 3 in my Storm Lords series (though a standalone romance). Here’s a little blurb…
Two thousand years ago, Finn Stanton was cast out of Heaven for stealing the Elixir of Life to save his mortal wife. Now, a wolf-shifter and a demon of the Abyss, he’s found her again, and has a chance of redemption and eternity with the woman he loves—all she has to do is remember that long ago, in another forgotten lifetime, she loved an angel.
2o Shades of Shifter is up for pre-order on Amazon right now for only 99 cents!
So what do you think of anthologies as a writer or a reader? Have you discovered any new and favorite authors through an anthology?
