Fab Friday announcement – we have a winner!

As regular readers of the blog will know, November will see the release date of The Write Romantics and Friends’ anthology in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.  If you haven’t already heard about this exciting project, you can read all about it on our anthology page.

winter3We’ve been running a competition to come up with a title for the anthology and we were delighted to receive over thirty entries.  There were some really creative names amongst the suggestions and they had us all thinking about cosying up in front of a roaring log fire – yes, even in August!

Our eventual winner was a title of elegant simplicity with a link to the literary king of them all, William Shakespeare.  After much deliberation, and a gentle debate over whether to include an apostrophe or not, we had our title and tagline:

Winter Tales” – stories to warm your heart

The winner of the competition was the lovely Liz Berry from Crawley in West Sussex, pictured here with a backdrop more like toLiz Berry bring summer to mind, and a £20 Amazon voucher is winging its way to her as we speak.

Please do support the anthology if you can.  It will be available as an e-book and in paperback from November and very soon we will be having our next big announcement – The Cover Reveal!

Thanks again to everyone who took part and who has supported us so far.  You’re all winners in our eyes.

  1. Thanks so much to the WRs. I’m awaiting the Postman with bated breath!

    I can’t wait to read the stories, you are all so passionate about your writing that the book is certain to be a hit.


  2. Thanks Liz joining in the fun and entering the competition…and congratulations! I can’t wait to finally see our anthology, “Winter Tales”, and the name is perfect.

  3. Congratulations, Liz. Ooh, it makes it all very real now there’s a title. There are going to be a lot of people getting copies of Winter Tales from me as Christmas presents this year! 😉

  4. Reblogged this on SHARON BOOTH and commented:
    Thrilled to say that the anthology I’m a part of now has a name and even a tag-line! 🙂
    My story will appear in this book and is called The Other Side of Christmas. I’ve read a couple of the other stories that are appearing and if they’re representative of the collection then you’re in for a treat! I do hope that you’ll buy a copy – either paperback or Kindle version. It’s for two very deserving causes, and just imagine snuggling up in a warm and cosy room, safe from the winter weather outside, and losing yourself in some lovely romances. Happy reading!
