The Secrets of Moonlight Cove writing project-- fun but complicated.

This isn't the typical box set or anthology with stories taking place in Moonlight Cove.  Our stories intersect. That's the complicated part. We write scenes involving characters from the other books.  Our individual books are short, between 5 - 10,000 words.  We have a map of Moonlight Cove, created by Jaimee Friedl, so that we move our characters with accuracy. Our fictional small town is nested just south of Carpenteria. It is quaint and quirky with a colorful history, a friendly population of charming residents who have problems. It is home to small shop owners, grumpy cops and sassy chefs. Back in the day, it was a bustling fishing town and home to many immigrants, from both the state cabins and the lowest decks.  It has a lighthouse and lots of secrets.  Other authors completing their stories are Shauna Roberts, Barb DeLong, Jaimee Friedl, Jaimee's daughter Keeley,  Al Reid, and Janna Roznos.

Whew, mine is done.  It's a romantic suspense lovers' triangle.  We will do the usual thing-- release the box set at the same time we release individual books in September.   The box set book cover is in the works, and whatever the group decides is fine with me.
