The Mythology Anthology Takes Shape!
For anyone that’s been watching the blog with interest for more information on the mythology anthology that I’m putting together, your wait is over! I can’t divulge all the details, but here’s what I can tell you:
The title, thankfully, will obviously not be “mythology anthology,” but Seducing the Myth. I have a fellow writer and friend to thank for that… you know who you are 😉
My mermaid story, which will be within the anthology, is called Down By The Pool.
The lovely Jackie Adshead has kindly consented to paint a picture which I’ll be using as part of the cover design. We met up last week and chatted about various things, one of which was this cover. I’d previously sent her the first draft of my story so she could get an idea of what it was all about before we spoke. By the time I arrived at her house she’d got an idea in her head of what the area was like (as the story is based in a real place) and then I promptly burst her bubble by showing her the photos and YouTube videos (see those here) I took last time I was there. Poor Jackie was quite startled to find that the lovely tree lined pool she’d envisioned in her head was actually completely tree-less and in fact very bleak and barren (read her reaction here)! Luckily, she loves painting mermaids so she wasn’t too disappointed 😉 And I know I won’t be… if you check out Jackie’s website, you’ll see why!
I can’t release the table of contents just yet – though all authors have been notified. The editing process will begin very soon and when the project is further along, I’ll be posting more details here.
In the meantime, check out the sidebar of my blog ——-> to see where I’m doing guest posts this month!
