|Ladies and gentlemen, it is my extreme honor and pleasure to announce to you that Warmed And Bound: A Velvet Anthology, edited by the lovely and talented Pela Via will be released on Friday, July 22nd. Ordering information will be coming soon, however the price of the print-version of the book will be $15.95. There will also be multiple e-versions available at a significantly lower price. Again, ordering information will be available soon.
To enlarge the pictures of the front and back covers, you can click on them. They’re gorgeous, and watching them evolve over time has been more exciting. This entire process, from the beginning of an idea, to the execution of that idea, the submission process, seeing those submissions roll in, the editing process – a process I can proudly say that I was a part of – and the post-production nightmare that was trying to create a physical book that you can hold in your hand; all of this has been a dream come true. It is my hope that everyone that gets a copy of Warmed And Bound enjoys it just a fraction of how great it was to see this come to fruition.
