Editing and bundling and planning

Only one more week to go before the Very Merry Christmas bundle launches! It’s curated by Rebecca Senese, who also curated the Out of This World bundle. Rebecca has put together a great collection of stories, and I’m really excited to be a part of this bundle. I can feel the holiday spirit already!

My story “The Least Merry Elf” is about Jolper, a disgruntled elf who works at Santa’s Workshop.

I’m curating three more bundles in 2017: The Haunted bundle will be available February 1st, The Faerie Summer bundle May 1st, and the Beneath the Waves bundle in June. I worked on the cover for the faerie bundle yesterday, and created this banner for the bundle’s Facebook page.

It was really fun looking through images. Not only did I find artwork for this bundle, I also found a few images that I think will work for stories I haven’t written yet, as well as images that are making me think of even more stories to write. 🙂

If you’re curious about how story bundles work, I wrote a post called What is Story Bundling and How Does It Work? that was published on the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ blog last week.

In addition to my existing projects, I’m adding a new story because I’ve been invited to participate in an anthology. The theme of this anthology is Lovecraftian horror, which will be challenging since I haven’t written anything like that before – but it’s also going to be a lot of fun! According to Wikipedia, “Lovecraftian horror is a subgenre of horror fiction that emphasizes the cosmic horror of the unknown (and in some cases, unknowable) more than gore or other elements of shock, though these may still be present.”

And while my subconscious tries to figure out what to write for the anthology, I’m busy editing the novel!
