MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Below is more information about this awesome new book. Thanks to Misty Evans for putting all this fabulous information together.

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.

If you would like to host this book or any of the contributors on your blog, PLEASE contact Misty Evans (misty(at)readmistyevans(dot)com).  This truly is a cause we can all get behind.

Thanks for the book selection. I am adding this to my growing "to-read" pile. Great pick and a good cause. My mom is an 18 year breast cancer survivor. I had a scare myself years back, but got lucky.

Laurie, thank you for posting the information about Entangled! It was so nice of you to help spread the word about our charity anthology.

Victoria said...

Will you put up a post with links where we can purchase Entangled please?

Laurie said...

Hi Victoria,
Good Question! The book will be released September 12. I did check Amazon and did not find it there yet. Perhaps one of our lovely authors has some more info about where we will be able to purchase the book???

Edie Ramer said...

Thanks for the interest! Sept. 12th is the release date. In fact, we're still working on the final proof to make it as error free as we can.

It's less than two weeks from now. I'm so excited!

Liz Kreger said...

Thanx for the terrific pre-release information, Laurie. As a fifteen year BC survivor, I was thrilled to be asked to participate in this anthology. Breast Cancer is a disease that touches all of us in so many ways. My SIL was hit over twenty years ago and my mother in law over fifty years ago. Both are still alive and well.

Laura Morrigan said...

My mom is a breast cancer surviver. I was so honored when I was asked to do the cover...
And I can't wait to read it !
