Em's place

Writing, anxiety-wrangling, tea.

Whilst I’m away…

By Emma on May 17, 2012

I’ve been quiet lately, I can’t tell you why yet but I will very soon.

In the mean time, two anthologies which contain stories written by myself and fine writing friends are free for the Kindle for a very limited period – go grab them right now! Here’s the info:

Each anthology is a collection of interwoven short stories by emerging writers handpicked from across the English-speaking world. Unlike other anthologies, Chinese Whisperings is created in a sequential fashion and each story stands on its own merits while contributing to a larger, connected narrative.

The Red Book, the first of the anthologies has each successive writer taking a minor character from the preceding story and telling their story as the major character in the next story. Each writer also references events from the preceding story to tie the ten stories together. The anthology can be read forward, or backward, or begun in any place because of its circular nature.

The Yin and Yang Book takes the concept a step further, with the anthology played across parallel airport universes stemming from a decision to retrieve a stolen painting or to leave without it. It’s a sliding doors/spider web hybrid. Readers will see common characters slipping across the two universes, some of them behaving in slightly different ways. The parallel universes are anchored between a common prologue and epilogue.

 

I’ll be back soon, I promise. Em x

    wow, that was a brief time. Sadly, they’re now $5 each. :(

  2. Sadly? Sadly?! They’re still an absolute bargain at that price… ;-)

    Though a little bird tells me if you stick around for about a month there might be another free day coming up soon…
