Just What The Doctor Ordered!

50 Shades Of Cabernet!

Did you ever hear the expression, “there is a very thin line between loving and strongly disliking!”

Well that’s how I have always felt about short stories. You know when you read a book and it takes maybe two or three days, and you are devouring every word and just loving it? And then it ends! You think, “that was wonderful, I want more”! Short stories end so quickly that I am always wanting more. But, 50 Shades gives us, the reader, all we want and more! It is filled with many genres, and definitely has something for everyone! Since my illness, I can only read a little at a time. So now, I am a short story kind of gal! They are perfect and just what the doctor ordered.

50 Shades Of Cabernet is awesome! There are 18 mystery authors who have written 17 short stories! You can take your time and read them one at a time, a couple at once, or as many as you desire! But one thing for sure, you need to get started. So grab your favorite glass of wine, (or if you are a teetotaler, like me, grab your favorite drink), pull up a comfy chair and let yourself enjoy.

Please read on, and head over to my friend, Amy Reade’s blog for a look at three of the short stories in 50 Shades along with author interviews.

And as always, don’t forget to Live, Love, Laugh and by all means Read!


Reade and Write

It is my great pleasure to have THREE authors here today–Maggie King, Kristin Kisska, and Heather Weidner. They’re here to discuss their stories in the newly-released anthology 50 Shades of Cabernet. This book, perhaps more than any other I’ve discussed on my blog, fits in perfectly with the theme of my blog which, besides reading and writing, is wine!

I should apologize in advance that some of the links below have to be copied and pasted into another browser for them to work. I tried two dozen times to get the links to work for this post, and unfortunately not all of them do.


Let’s get started. Here’s how it’s going to work: the authors, arranged alphabetically, will each provide an answer to my questions.

How does an author get invited to participate in an anthology?
