Momentum Deal!!

Wow, what an interesting journey it's been to get to this point! Crazy, really.
What started as an anthology idea discussed with Cath Evans to raise money for a writing retreat I organized at Montville, has somehow catapulted into a collection of short stories, which Momentum will release - the first five in November of this year!
It just goes to show, listen to your subconscious (or whatever you'd like to call it). I'm saying this because, after months of hair pulling and discussing with Tracey O'hara about how we were going to self-publish the stories from some already published authors, as well as some unpublished authors we'd all mentored and critiqued up to publishable standard (13 out of 16 stories accepted is pretty remarkable, I think) I lay in bed one night unable to sleep, but hearing stuff over and over in my head about Momentum. I almost dismissed the idea that next morning - but since Kylie Scott was one of the authors roped into the 'antho' mix and who was already contracted with Momentum, I really did think, "what's the harm in asking?"
Turned out no harm at all LOL!!
I'm looking forward now in seeing where this road will lead!! =)))
