When J. Thorn first asked me to do the collaboration, I was excited but apprehensive. How would ten authors come together to do something seamless and original? More simply: how would we pull this off?
In writing our portion, we were each given a story prompt, two character’s names, and a tarot card to serve as a clue to defeat the guardian warlock. We were also given a starting and ending city. In addition to figuring out the story, I spent a decent amount of time on research—figuring out the backdrop to my tale to get the details right. The premise was a little outside of my genre, but in the end, it was well worth the effort.
The book came out better than I could’ve imagined. Probably the coolest part was getting to read the other author’s stories and seeing what everyone came up with. Up until a few weeks ago, I had no idea who wrote what. Hopefully people will enjoy reading the book as much as we have enjoyed writing it.
