The Valentine’s Day Anthology
With six E-book bundle prizes!
By J. L. Salter
My own tale – No Love, No Diamonds: The Story I Couldn’t Write – is one of 15 shorts in the Love and Diamonds anthology.
To acquaint you with each of the stories (and authors) featured, our “Seeking for Diamonds, Finding Love Scavenger Hunt” is underway, Feb. 12-14.
Thirty digital books – including two of my own AP novels – will be given away as prizes —— six bundles of five books each. To register for the drawing, just participate in our scavenger hunt — the more keywords you find and post, the more chances you’ll have to win a book bundle.
[See additional details at the bottom of this post.]
I am especially pleased that my story kicks off this anthology. Here is my blurb:
Is that muscular man digging a mysterious hole next door just a distraction from Susan’s romantic story submission deadline, or could handsome Randy be her story?
Struggling to write a short romantic story with a tight deadline, Susan is stumped. There’s no romance in her life right now and the only story ideas are off-the-wall suggestions from her married girlfriend, Allie. When all looks hopeless, they both spot a shirtless, muscular young man digging a mysterious hole next door.
But is that stranger digging up… or burying down?
The only way Susan will find out is to take that scary first step — walk over and introduce herself.
Susan sees Randy as merely a handsome distraction from her deadline, but Allie insists the digger outside that window is Susan’s story.
