Interview with Marianne L. D. Drolet

We’re back for more Wings of Renewal interview! Before we move on to our seven good ol’ questions, just a reminder than you can now preorder on Nook, Kobo, and iBooks or add the anthology on goodreads! 1. What inspired your short story?

Interview with Caitlin Nicoll

We come back to friends! Or at least, friends-prior-to-the-anthology, because our writers are so cool, I’d be honored to call them all friends. ^^ I met Caitlin the same way I met my co-editor, Brenda, through writerly forums. We even went to hike Mt. Adams together last year! So I’m super happy to host her […]

Interview with Kimberly Kay & Ashley Gephart

Editing an Anthology: the Fun and the Painful

And we’re back, continuing the little story of Wings of Renewal. We have chosen our stories, written our acceptance and rejection letters, and all that’s left is the editing. “All.” Like that was little. It’s funny because I’m a published author. I rewrote Viral Airwaves a bunch of time as I wrote and revised and learned what it […]

The Call for Submissions and Choosing Stories

Building Wings of Renewal has been an adventure from start to finish, and it all began with the submission period.
