Stacia Kane Contributes Foreword To Entangled

A couple of weeks ago, I heard about Entangled, an anthology that was soon to be released, and to which Stacia Kane has provided the foreword. The anthology is a collection of Halloween themed stories, and it’s released in support of charity. 100% of the proceeds go to Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Entangled releases September 12, 2011, and will be available as an ebook at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords and other online retailers.and this is the beautiful cover, that’s also been donated to the project.

Back Cover Blurb
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.
One of the people who initiated this project, Misty Evans, answered a few questions about it over on Laurie’s Thoughts & Reviews. This is what she says about the price:
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.

To find out more about  how the book came about, and the stories you’ll find in the anthology, you can visit Laurie’s Thoughts & Reviews or Misty Evans’ website, where you can also read a sneak peek of her contribution to the anthology, Sweet Demon.Entangled is actually already available to purchase, and Stacia blogged about her involvement on her website. You can read Misty’s Q&A there as well.

I’ve been waiting for it to appear on Smashwords, since Amazon adds a fee if you buy books from them, and Barnes & Noble’s e-books aren’t available for international customers; and I’m happy to report that it’s already up on Smashwords as well! 😀

Here are links to where you can purchase Entangled:

Amazon (Kindle)

Barnes & Noble (Nook)

Smashwords (several formats)

So, basically, you can get a whole book of stories from awesome authors, it only costs $2.99, and it’s all for charity – so what are you waiting for? :-)
If you’re still not convinced, you can read this very positive review over at Coffee Table Reviews, where Aimee mentions that Stacia’s foreword was the thing that touched her most about the book.

Release Date For Sacrificial Magic + Snippet

Since I last blogged, a lot has been going on in Stacia Kane land, so I’m going to do a few catch-up posts. I won’t bore you with reasons as to why blogging has been scarce. I’ll just say that, after the kind of winter we’ve had here, the sun is a coveted thing when it finally emerges after all the dark months. 😉 And, of course, summer is also a time of vacations and family get-togethers.

In any case, lots of awesome news!! There are quite a few little tidbits, but I’ll start with the major news. :-)

First, on June 1, Stacia made an announcement on her blog, and we finally got a release date for Sacrificial Magic – March 27!

I know we all hoped it would be sooner, but in Sweden we have a saying, that if you’re waiting for something good, the wait is never too long. :-) And I think we all know it’ll be worth the wait when we finally get to read the book.

We also got a short snippet from Sacrificial Magic to make the wait a bit easier:

His room hadn’t changed. The house hadn’t changed. Only the looks given her by the various guards or enforcers or whoever they were had; from bland acceptance to subtle suspicion.

And she’d changed, it seemed. At least a bit. In the car chatting all had been well, but when the door closed behind her it occurred to her how long it had been since she’d been there. And what had happened last time she’d been there. Happened several times and again in the morning, if memory served, which it did.

Another awkward moment when she started walking toward the bed, remembered, and turned back to the couch against the wall. Lex already sat there, lighting a cigarette, flipping a switch behind him so The Jam started playing in the background. King of his little room-castle, just like how one day he’d be king of this side of town.

“So what’s up?” The question sounded lame even to her, but she couldn’t think of anything else to say. The bed with its plain blue blanket and sheets loomed larger and larger in her vision.

Happy Birthday Stacia!

There are so many posts I want to write; so many wonderful news right now. But as I’m short for time, I’ll cut to what’s most important: Wishing Writing Goddess Stacia Kane a Happy Birthday!!!

Yep, today is Stacia’s birthday, and that means she’s doing her annual “delurk and ask questions” blog post over at her blog. 😉 So, we should all pop over there and wish her a happy birthday and inundate her with questions.

To celebrate, I decided to go looking for appropriate cakes and party decorations for the author of Downside. Of course there should be ghosts!

These first “cupcake ghosts” are so cute, and also a bit apropos as Stacia actually mentioned cupcakes in a comment today. 😀

This is a beautiful cake; I love the letters!

Finally, we have a more Halloween themed cake, which reminded me of Haunted Week!
