Those of you who know me, know that I love a good anthology.
And you also know that I love New York. I have lived here my whole life and just can't imagine living anywhere else. But Hurricane Sandy really knocked us back quite a bit. I have never seen the city so battered, even after 9/11 (very different circumstances).
New Yorkers always band together and rise up, and so do romance writers. Leave it to Trinity Blacio, one of the kindest, most generous women I have ever met to immediately call and ask if there was anything we could do to help New York. Before the ink was even dry on my new publishing company's incorporation papers, Trinity had volunteered to rally the troops and help me put together a benefit anthology to raise money to help New York.
Below are the details:
WE LOVE NEW YORK: A Hurricane Sandy Benefit Anthology

The theme is love in New York. This will be our Valentine's Day title, ten percent of proceeds will go to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy. Stories must be in by Jan. 15. We will consider previously published stories.
We hope to publish 20 stories between 2000 and 5,000 words (might consider going
up to 10,000 if the story is exceptional). Pro rata royalties split
between the authors. Non-exclusive World rights. We hope this will be an audio title as well.
