A Thrilling New Creative Collaboration - Bleeding Ink - A Collection of Dark Tales

I was right into the throes of NaNoWriMo when along came an opportunity...to collaborate with two talented writers -  Patricia Hollett and Tammy Crosby  - compiling deliciously dark, sinfully sinister, eerily evocative, frighteningly funny and though-provoking tales.

The creative collaboration proved incredibly tempting.  The idea of giving writers an opportunity to share their unique voice in a collection I helped create thrilled me to no end.

How could I refuse?

I gently closed the file containing the nano story I'd been working on, "The Guardian of Secrets" - not to be abandoned but to tuck it away for safekeeping for a few days - and began an inspired and impassioned dialogue with my collaborators.

Astonished by their enthusiasm and talent - I have never had the pleasure of working with people so passionate  - those few days produced a wonderful and worthwhile project I'm proud to be part of...

Hi Lisa,

It's a great idea, but do you really know what you've let yourself in for working with these two? ;)

Cracking idea and I'll see about getting something written. I don't expect it to get anywhere but I write for the fun of it and want to give a little something to help others out as well.

I couldn't think of two better collaborators in the world except you two! It's been crazy, hectic, fun, enlightening, laughable, challenging, and most of all a wonderful experience so far...looking ahead to bright futures!
