What Stace had to say on Thursday, September 8th, 2011
ENTANGLED Anthology is available!

Some of you may already have heard of the ENTANGLED anthology; eleven short stories (well, ten shorts and a novella) by Allison Brennan, Misty Evans, Jennifer Estep, Edie Ramer, Nancy Haddock, Dale Mayer, Cynthia Eden, Michelle Miles, Lori Brighton, Liz Kreger, and Michelle Diener, with all profits going to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Oh, and a Foreword by, well, me.

Here’s a little Q&A Misty Evans sent me:

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 her Mythos Academy series.

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.

The book’s Goodreads page is here, with buylinks etc., and in addition to the other reviews there’s a nice thorough one here at Coffee Table Reviews.

I’ve never written a Foreword before, and it was a huge honor for me to be invited to do so, especially for such an important cause. So I really, really hope you guys all decide to buy the book!

    I’ll pick it up this Friday (payday) and do a blog next week– I’m on goodreads too so I’ll post the review there. You all are so wonderful for doing this. Thank you.

    I also saw that Avon is doing a special promotion for Ovarian Cancer too, so that’s also cool.

    I’m waiting for it to show up on Smashwords, so I can avoid Amazon’s surcharches. However, I downloaded a sample from Amazon and read your foreword. Really beautiful!

    Stacia, I’m one of the contributors to the ENTANGLED anthology, and I want to thank you for the wonderful, wonderful foreword. It was perfect for the anthology. Here’s hoping this book does tremendously well. I can’t see why it wouldn’t. The authors involved are wonderful, the price is great and it all goes to such a great cause, why wouldn’t everyone buy it? :)

    BTW Marie. it is up on Smashwords now: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/87661. Happy reading!

      Michelle, thanks for the info! I actually noticed it myself (after searching for it continuously during the weekend lol). You reminded me to buy it today. So now it’s sitting on my iPod!

      Thanks for contributing to such a great cause! :D

    You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I to
    find this topic to be really something that I believe I would never understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m taking a look ahead for your subsequent publish, I’ll attempt to get
    the hold of it!
