Is working with nine other authors difficult?? @MimiBarbour

I see you’ve decided to check out whether working with a number of women is difficult or not? You’d think it would be easy having all those professional brains working towards one goal, right? That everyone with the same aim would see things the same way? And that we’d all be at the identical level of knowledge to make life simple.

Uhhh! No!!

It’s not easier. Unless you have a group like I was fortunate to join. Then it’s a piece of cake!!! I can’t tell you how much I’ve learned from the other girls and how sweet it is not to have to do it all myself.

I think my favorite decision we came up with as a group was to form a cookbook. Best of all, we made the decision to give it away - as a gift.

Truly! Ten authors selected 2 of our favorite recipes that would be mentioned in our books and put them into a cookbook called The Ten Brides for Ten Heroes Cookbook. We’ve finally gotten it up free on all the channels we could pester into match pricing.  Amazon being the final holdout has changed the price now and we’re badgering their Canadian and UK branches to follow suit. Hopefully, by now, you will have the free access wherever you shop.

Now - you’re probably wondering why we went to all the trouble to produce this cookbook? And if you think it’s an attention grabber, you’d be right. We wanted to be able to promote our real gift in a way that’s going to please the readers.

Not only did we all write full-length, wedding stories featuring brides and romance and all that good romantic stuff, but we decided to price it so low that it’s really like a gift too.
You might ask why we’d want to go and do that and I’ll tell you. The truth is that every author wants attention in the publishing industry. We need to have folks read our work and hopefully fall so madly in love with our style and characters that they decide to buy another of our books, and another, and…
This was our purpose and it seems to be working. Of course, getting high enough in the rankings that we just might hit the major lists would be a terrific plus, too.  So, please help us out by getting your copy of Ten Brides for Ten heroes today and fill all those free hours when you can steal away and enjoy our wonderful stories.
