I have some promo copies of an anthology with stories by Deirdre Knight, me, and Laura Florand, scheduled to come out at the end of the month. Would you like an early copy? Comment to win!
I love my story, “Weddings, Ink.” The idea popped into my head some time back and this is what I wrote on a post-it and slapped on my office wall: “She writes personalized wedding vows as a profession.” When the editor called me about the theme of the anthology, brides, I asked her if that meant the heroine had to be the bride. She heard that note of excitement in my voice, coming from staring at that pink post-it on the wall. “No…” she said, and when I pitched my idea she was on board.
My heroine is contracted to write the vows of her ex-stepsister, a near-Bridezilla, who insists heroine Charlotte attend a weekend with the wedding party in order to write vows that capture her love for her groom. Unfortunately, the groom’s brother and best man is none other than Charlotte’s ex.
I loved Charlotte and Luke’s story–how this determined man is not willing to let prickly (for good reason!) Charlotte get away from him again. These two belong together and I can’t wait for you to read their story.
So…it’s centered around wedding vows. What did you do/what do you plan to do? I’m ashamed to say I didn’t write my own. I was under a time crunch and traveling for work right before my ceremony, so I went traditional.
