Information and announcements about new Mixed Blessings Anthologies which are a compilation of the Editors' Choice winning Writing Challenge entries.
Moderator: Deb Porter
Mixed Blessings Book 3 will be based on the Genre Challenge from the April-June quarter in 2007 (yes ... another really old one). The releases will start going out to these authors sometime toward the end of January. It may be a little tricky tracking some of them down:
Amy Michelle Wiley
Cassie Memmer (Cassie's daughter has given permission for us to use Cassie's work).
Dan Louise Mann
Evie Mack (account gone)
Loren T. Lowery
Lynda Lee Schab
This was a really fun quarter of topics, and it's going to make for a really good book.
I've been waiting a LONG time to see this one come out!
Wonderful birthday present
Oh, is this one going to be ebook or traditional?
Shari, I was thinking of you when I saw your name in the list as I was preparing it. I'm happy dancing with you.
It will be both traditional print and e-book, and I think it should be available in September next year. That's the time frame, at any rate.
(And I've just set Book 4 onto the timeline as well, but not going to mention anything about that just yet).
Ah . . . yes, entering is usually helpful when trying to win.
Man, just LOOKING at these names brings back some wonderful memories! And I'm excited about this book - this was a VERY stretchy - and FUN - quarter!! (and yeah, I moved into masters here.) Hope you CAN find these folks!
Did you ever find JoJo for the other book, Deb?
There are a few I'm fairly sure will be lost. Maxx. for one. He's a bit tricky to track down (from past experience). There are a couple of others I'm not hopeful about, as well. I'm hoping I can find the vast majority, though. I can be a bit of a bloodhound when it comes to things like this.
Yes, I did. Very happy about that too.
Yes, thanks for that, Allison. I did remember.
Deb - just dropped an email to Pepper Basham (who I did NOT remember being at FW LOL) - I follow a group blog she contributes to and have become something of a friend of hers. Guessing her contact info is MAJORLY out of date
Hi Pepper. I'm so glad Jo knew you. I haven't started mailing out to the authors for this book yet, but it's really good to have contacts from the outset.
I'm so glad you are able to use Cassie's story! I know Lillian had mentioned something about that a little while ago. I know it'll mean a lot to her and I'm so happy that Cassie's family will have a book to honor her. God does amazing things. (And you do a lot of the helping Deb )
