Opportunities for Writers

I took a two-month hiatus after successfully completing a self-publishing marathon of writing and bringing eight books to market in eight months. Now, my batteries are re-charged and I’m ready to tackle another type of creative project I’ve never attempted before–this time involving a whole bunch of other writers of multiple genres.

I plan to create one or more anthologies combining some of my work with those of perhaps twenty other writers for each genre such as:

“Spine-Tinglers” Thriller/action fictional short stories

“Funny-Bone Ticklers” Humorous short stories

“What Works for Us” True stories of creative ways couples improved their relationships and made them more fun

“Heart-Warmers” Uplifting stories that warm hearts and brighten spirits

I know first-hand how expensive, time-consuming, and at times frustrating self-publishing can be. I’d love to help new writers to become published, and expose more readers to the work of experienced authors.

Would you please help me to spread the word about these opportunities for writers? I’d appreciate it if you’d let others who might be interested in learning more about these or similar possible follow-on projects in these or other genres.

For more information, I can be contacted at russtowne@yahoo.com.

Thank you!

With Love,

Thank you!

Warm regards,

      Thank you, Mimi. I love your writing style. Please let me know if you have anything you’d like to have considered for the anthologies. I may also create a general anthology with no-specific genre.

    Shared on Google + and FB… hope it brings lots of prospects for you…

      Thank you, bulldog. I really appreciate your support. By the way, in a recent comment you mentioned a story about being in DC with your family and being helped. It resonated with me. If you’d like to turn the comments into a short story, I’d be happy to consider including it in Heart-Warmers.

    Reblogged this on Destination Unknown and commented:
    Attention all writers…
    Want more exposure? Want to collaborate?
    Russ, at A Grateful Man is sharing the love…why does this remind me of the old Breck commercials?
    Really, Russ is a great guy and really wants to help people succeed in their passions. If you have a story, I would recommend that you contact him.
