Back in May, a group of five authors released a collection of semi-anonymous romances called Sight Unseen. Our names were on the cover, but they weren’t on the individual pieces. This week, we’ve been revealing who wrote what: Erin Satie authored Lost that Feeling; Meredith Duran’s was A Clear View of You; and my entry was Free. That’s right, I wrote the motorcycle romance. (ETA: JA Rock wrote Chariot of Desire and Sherry Thomas’s was The Heart is a Universe.)
You can read interviews with Erin here, Meredith here, me here, and JA and Sherry here. The only thing I’ll add is I utterly adored this project. I can see how readers might feel frustrated that we wandered out of our niches, but Free is so far beyond my wheelhouse, I don’t think I would have finished writing it let alone marketed it without Sight Unseen. From an author point of view, the freedom and anonymity were wonderful.
If you want to a peep into my head, here’s my Pinterest board for the book (I had to finally answer that important question, “what is a Metallica?”), and the passage I’ve screenshotted above is one of my favorites I’ve ever written.
