It all started when Leigh D'Ansey ( www.leighdanseyauthor.com ) said, 'Why don't we...?'
So we did, & the Anthology, 'A Tangle of Tinsel and Tartan' ( www.amazon.com/dp/B08M945JBR ) came into being. We each contributed a short story of about 5000 words, which contained a baby and a reference to Christmas - since we planned to offer it as a little festive gift. Yes, it's FREE!
Leigh D'Ansey's story is a delightful Regency version of the original Christmas story and pertains to her Northbridge Brides series.
Caroline Bagshaw ( www.carolinebagshawauthor.com ) is the Tartan in this trio. Though living in New Zealand, she was born and raised in Scotland, and - Weel, ye cannae tak' the skirl out o' a Scots lassie!' So her story touched on Hogmanay rather than Christmas and ties in to her long awaited Highland Seer series. But aye, there's a bairn...
And we launched it with a 'launcheon' at the Italian Renaissance Garden, a feature of the Hamilton (New Zealand) Gardens, with the support of families, friends and fellow writers (who we're also privileged to call friends.)
But I did say 3 books, aye?
With much less fanfare (and much less fun) I also published the opening novella and Book 1 in my Regency Rebelles series, Propriety Be Damned, and Wages of Sin.
But I will tell you more of this in my next post when Amazon has listed the novella FREE.
Meantime, A Kiss for a Tart, my story in the Anthology, is an aside to the Regency Rebelles series.
Miss Edith Longfellow is half-sister to the hero in Book 1, and Lord Magnus Masterson is younger brother to the hero in Book 8.
