FALLING FOR YOU Release and Winner!

Anthology coverAt last! FALLING FOR YOU, the collection of ten small-town novellas from Superromance authors, is out now!

All the authors are so excited to share our stories with you. We’ve been talking about this for so long, and to have it finally happen … well … it’s adding some serious support to that old chestnut about dreams really coming true.

We’ve been building to this day with plenty of activities on our Facebook party page (still happening, do come join the fun!). And I had a blast sending out thank you packets to those who pre-ordered the anthology.

Speaking of which – I have a winner! Brenda R let me know that she had pre-ordered, and she is the winner of the $10 gift certificate to the online book store of her choice! Brenda, be watching for an email from me. Everyone else, thank you so much for sharing in the excitement. We hope you’ll love FALLING FOR YOU!

If I Fall: the Soundtrack

I have to say it: the soundtrack that I pulled together for IF I FALL is probably my favorite of all the ones I’ve ever created. I listen to it a lot, even now that I’m done  writing the story. You simply must check out some of these amazing songs.

If I had to pick just one song for this story, it would be this one. Whitney and Jed are best friends, but it wasn’t always that way. There’s History between them. History that made them lose each other once. Is it any wonder Whitney is reluctant to do anything that could mess up what they have?

And Whitney has good on to fear that she would mess things up with Jed, because her track record with relationships is – um – pretty bad. She simply doesn’t believe she can do it. History has her scared.

I love this song. I loved it in Tangled (oh, I cried), and I love it for Whit and Jed. At last I see the light … Yep. That’s Whit.

The message of this song has always resonated with me. But it’s the last lines that made me choose it for this story:

Love isn’t someplace that we fall

It’s something that we do.

Whitney is afraid of falling. She needed to listen to this song 🙂

The More, The Merrier

I had never done a collaborative project before the Falling For You anthology, but it turned out to be an amazing experience, in ways I expected and in those I never would have predicted.

I’d been lucky enough to meet most of my fellow authors at various RWA conferences over the years. I knew that they were determined, talented, funny women and that they would be a joy to work with. What I couldn’t have predicted was how much they would teach me – about publicity, about resources, about finding creative solutions to dilemmas.

And when the news came out that the Superromance line was being discontinued, these ladies became my lifeline. They were the only ones who could truly understand the impact of the news. They shared my concern about our editors. We traded news and strategized together and encouraged each other to try new lines and directions. They were a Godsend – and that’s not a term I use lightly.

Here’s to my Super sisters. Long may we shore each other up and cheer each other on.

Anthology Bonus – And Some Fun!

So the excitement around the Falling For You anthology is building, and the authors are finding all kinds of fun ways to celebrate and thank all the amazing readers. The biggest, of course, is the pre-order price of just 99 cents. Ten novellas for a buck? Can’t be beat!

Because we are so very grateful to all if you, I have a special thanks. I’ll send a special little packet to anyone who pre-orders the anthology. It contains a couple of recipes for foods mentioned in my story, If I Fall – Whitney’s Chicken Salad, and Whitney’s Snickerdoodles (with two seasonal variations!). The pack also includes a scene I had to cut from the final version due to space limitations – a fun one between my heroine Whitney and her sister Tanya.

Want a copy of this little thank you packet? All you have to do is send me an email (kris@krisfletcher.com or use the form on the Contact page). Just say I Pre-Ordered and I’ll get your goodies out to you ASAP.

ALSO, everyone who requests the packet will be entered into a drawing for a $10 (US or equivalent) gift card to the online bookseller of your choice. Winner will be announced on October 17, the day FALLING FOR YOU releases.

Also, just for fun, I did a Facebook Live reading of the first lines of all ten novellas in the anthology. Want to watch? Just click on the ridiculously long link below!
