Yes, it is 2016, and the Debut Collective group has been hard at work. For those of you that are new to the whole Debut Collective or curious what we’re all about, I’ll be happy to give you this overview of this AMAZING project:
We have all met at or because of UtopiaCon – an annual book convention in Nashville, TN. – And we’re comprised of new, debuting authors to seasoned ones that are debuting new works between UtopiaCon 2015 and UtopiaCon 2016. We’ve come together to form a community that’s releasing a 5 (FIVE) book anthology release.
Each book has it’s own theme for the stories – Acts of Bravery, Hostile Takeover/Insurgent, Secret Identity, The Underdog and even Love Against All Odds. And each book has 15 authors in them!
But wait! There’s more!
This entire project is comprised of amazing authors, yes. However, we have a full team of volunteer editors, cover designers, layout and formatters and even a legion of bloggers! Monies earned go towards marketing and what’s left over is being donated to a literacy charity.
Now, we’re ready to start ramping up this blog here for you all to see what we’re up to!
#1 Interviews. Our very own Shantele Summa will be bringing to our blog something very cool… interviews of each of our authors! Starting here very soon, you will be able to get a glimpse of Debut Collective authors, their current works and even what they have coming up!
#2 Cover reveals… oh, you’re all just a bit more than excited for these aren’t you? Well? We will be doing the cover reveals VERY SOON! They’re in the final stages. So keep an eye out for that!
#3 Editing. Stories are in for the second and final round of edits. Soon, they will be handed back to the authors for final revisions before going to formatting and layout. All before the projected release date of June 1st, 2016!
