For the past week, my writing time has been spent on the BundleRabbit bundle I’m curating, and on the two writing classes I’m taking (one more week left for both classes – but there’s no more homework!).
The bundle is named “Fantasy in the City” and is, as you might have guessed, filled with urban fantasy short stories. 🙂 The main character in my story “The City Trees” is a dryad. Here’s the cover:
This story is set in the same world as my in progress novel The Language of Water. That novel will be in a series, and I debated putting the series name on the short story cover, then finally decided doing so wouldn’t mean anything to people until the series is out.
Bundle-wise, there’s still quite a bit of work left for me to do. I spent quite a bit of time this weekend looking at background images for the bundle. The background image will be displayed on the sales page, above the montage of cover images. It’s important because it should convey something about the bundle to potential readers, but that’s a bit of a challenge since there are twenty different authors in this bundle! I’ve narrowed it down to three possible images, and should have that finalized shortly.
I’ll also need to put together variants of this image for the other authors to use if they choose to. Next up is to write an exciting, compelling description that will make anyone who sees it rush to buy the bundle. 🙂
I’m really excited about the launch. I’ve never participated – much less organized! – anything like this before, and it’s really fun. Plus there are a lot of great stories in the bundle that I can’t wait to read!
