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 email@example.com.
That’s awesome Russ. I will tweet it out!
Thank you, Diana! I appreciate your help spreading the word. By the way, for the Heart-Warmers anthology you might want to consider submitting your story about your daughter using her allowance to feed a hungry homeless person. As you know, that story touched me. You may have some other stories for that or other genres that you might want to consider discussing.
Thanks Russ, I will sent it to you!
Sounds wonderful Russ!!
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.
You are a compassionate human being living your passion Russ. Thank you for being here 🙂
Thank you for your kind comment and compliments, Val. They brightened my day.
Wow fantastic projects here. Let it flow! I am always here to read and enjoy your writing!
Thank you, Ute. You are of course welcome to write or share something for consideration for possible inclusion in the books too.
Haha Russ, I rather read yours! 🙂
Thank you for your kind comment, Ute. My invitation remains open in any case.
I have been very busy and just saw this post. What an awesome Idea…I’ll be sharing on my blog and Facebook. 🙂
Thank you, Mrs. P. I’m very grateful that you are helping to spread the word.
Happy to do so!

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.
What a kind thing to do and say, Mrs. P. Thank you!
This is great Russ, will share of FB 🙂
Thank you, Michelle! I appreciate your kindness and support.
