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, itโ€™s a fantastic deal at either price.

To find out more aboutย  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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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.

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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. ๐Ÿ˜€

This is a beautiful cake; I love the letters!

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

Pic sources: Here, here and here. There are a lot of fun ideas for ghost cakes and other things.

Get Your Manuscript Critiqued By Stacia – Help Japan

I think we’ve all followed the awful events that have taken place in Japan the past week. And I think most of us have thought of what we could do to help. The wonderful UF/PNR/YA writing community decided to contribute their special talents to raise money for different charities, with the goal of helping the Japanese people.

There are so many things Japan needs urgent help with right now; food and water, infrastructure and clean-up. And it isn’t even over yet, since we still dont know what will happen with the damaged nuclear reactors. It’s a scary time for the people in Japan, and everyone doing their part to help is wonderful.

Stacia is part of one of the charity events that have been set up on eBay, where people can bid on what various authors have listed. The auctions that Stacia is part of, and that have been set up by Carolyn Crane, are particulary interesting if you’re an aspiring author, since it consists of a critique by selected authors from the League of Reluctant Adults.

You can go to Stacia’s blog if you want to read more about the auctions. Or you can go directly to the auctions by clicking here. The authors have divided into two “teams”, so you can choose who you’d want to critique your work. At this moment, the teams are pretty much neck and neck!

If you want to know more about The League of Reluctant Adults, you can visit their blog.

There are several other authors raising money for Japan in different ways. Richelle Mead has set up several auctions, where you can bid on both her and other YA authors’ books. You can find them here.
