It's here! WF's 10th Anniversary Anthology Release: PASSAGES.



This beautiful anthology officially treks out into the wild today, and from cover to content, Passages offers a deep, thirst-quenching drink from Writing Forum's finest work, from some of WF'S most talented members.


Blurb


With a fine blend of prose, poetry, and the visual arts, the authors, poets, and artists of Writing Forums.com come together in this unique anthology to showcase their finest. Sometimes visually, sometimes figuratively, but always pushing the barriers of creativity, this collection brings together amazing insights into what happens when creative people work no limits, no boundaries -- just pure imagination.

Come join us—but fair warning. Once you start to step outside the line, there's no telling where your imagination will take you …

ONE star? You are a terrible man! Ha!

And you are lying just like a carpet! Silly!


We know where you post... so watch it :)

We all know where he posts. I shall contact Joyce's friends, Bruno and Vinnie. They will discover where he lives and this will be much more effective, yes? Ha!


Don't worry, I'm not quite that eeeeeeeeeeeevil ... :angel:

We are watching you! You must behave yourself!

I have ordered our two books! This is so very exciting! I am so very happy Joyce brought me here!

Love,

Thank you all!

Ordered mine - just waiting for that thud on the front doormat.

Joyce is Hairball, a mentor. She was taken of a blood clot of her brain and is in the hospital, but she is doing very well! She has been moved to a regular room now and is very alert. She has her laptop with her now, and I will be leaving to visit her again now.

Love,

Cat flew out the door without further explanation. We're visiting from Romania, and staying with Joyce (Hairball) and her husband Justin, in their home.

Our family and Joyce's family are very close. They're fine people, and when Cat lived here, Joyce was a strong influence and helped guide Cat through college. Cat came to America to take care of her dad's aunt and attend college. I don't know how much more to reveal, but we'll wait for that.

We need some amazon reviews!

I'm sorry, we haven't gotten the books yet. What's wrong? Are we failing in ratings?

Lack of ratings shouldn't delay an order, Rina. :) Ratings in general take time anyway. There might just be a normal delay.

Received my copy this morning - well done to all involved.Will get my head in gear soon and write a review.

Unable to do a review - I did not have an Amazon account, so I got my daughter to sent for the book for me. When I tried to give a review I had to open an account to be allowed to do so - did that and still could not give a review because 'I' did not buy the book from Amazon.

Sorry, I did try.

Amazon is like that way- can't review unless you've bought the item from them. And then, they will pester you with e-mails to rate / review an item you've bought through them. UGH.

Do you have a blog? This is where I plan to put my review once I have my copy of Passages. :)

Yes, Amazon is odd. Justin used Joyce's account to get these, and I now have access to this with her name and password. Joyce approved this. We shall read and review!

This is so very exciting, yes?

We received them! Ha!

I took one to Joyce, and so we will probably not hear from her until she finishes it!

Love,

So proud to have been included in this one. Thank you editors and artists for making this possible. I also really like how the bio snippets are handled: at the end of each contributor's work instead of all bunched together at the end as in every other anthology I've ever seen.

*Drum Roll* 5 copies ordered.

Sadly Amazon won't let me review so I'm going to 'persuade' some people I know. :devilish:

I don't go near Amazon, but you might notice I've posted about it on Facebook, Twitter, and G+

Hope that's some help.

I bought a version for my Kindle a few days ago. Real life is going through a phase of taking up too much time. When it's like that, something has to give. I like reading and writing, but the reading sometimes has to be sacrificed.
Still, it's something to look forward to.
