Thanks Lynda. I'm hanging.

Apart from Philippians 4:13, I always have this picture in my mind to spur me on. I had a poster of it when I was in a high stress job 30 years ago, and it still makes me smile (and makes me believe I can do the impossible). LOL.

Yikes - it's been forever since I've hung out around here! That said, I just noticed that my name is on the list for this book. Really looking forward to seeing it in print. Hadn't been contacted about a release form or anything though, and wasn't sure if I'd been overlooked, if I hadn't gotten a message, or if it wasn't something that was even needed - I can't remember how it works. Do I need to do anything??

The releases for Book 3 haven't been sent out yet because I am compiling single releases to cover all winning entries up to December 2013 (apart from the first two books, as I already have releases for them). It's going to take a little longer, initially, to do, but it will mean less chasing in the long run.

From then on, I'll send releases out at the end of every quarter.

Love, Deb (and welcome back!)

Deb! I'm so happy for you! This ^ is a great idea. I'm a huge proponent of taking a bit more time in the beginning to save time in the long run. Efficiency! And of course, I'm also excited about my FW Anthology debut! :D :D

Thanks Cat. The releases are absolutely essential (because I am a very, very cautious person when it comes to legal matters), but they do hold things up. But doing it this way will be worth it in the end.

And you and me both about the first book. :lol:

What is the status of Book 3--Genres? Other than the Simple Pleasures, Book 1, have any other books come out with the older Challenge winners?

Hi. Might be worth getting the Breath of Fresh Air Press newsletter or following us on Facebook. Although I do post updates here as well. Helps keep you in the loop. :D But don't worry. All the authors in the books are notified well in advance, so you'll know.

Classically Inspired, book 2, was set for October 31, but looks more likely as mid-November at this point in time.

Book 3, which is Genre-ally Speaking, is being tentatively set for early February.

Deb,
I'm guilty of not subscribing to either :D...So the answer to my question might be in one of the above...What's the likelihood of Book #2 being available for Christmas? That would make my Christmas shopping a real breeze.

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

No problem, Lillian. It was hoped to be October 31, but best laid plans and all that. I'm aiming for mid-November now. So definitely in time for Christmas, and I will be taking pre-orders for authors so they will get it sent to them as soon as it is available.
