From the press release:

Fort Worth, Texas
– Eleven authors have banded together to support breast cancer research with their writing. Authors4theCure, which includes award-winning and New York Times bestselling authors, as well as two breast cancer survivors, is donating proceeds from the sale of their paranormal anthology, Entangled, to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

BCRF-funded research has helped save lives and improved the quality of care and rate of survival for tens of thousands of breast cancer patients in the past decade. Their research has revealed that the “cure” is a mosaic made up of as many approaches to diagnosing, treating, preventing and surviving as there are different types of breast cancer. The anthology is also a mosaic made up of many stories donated for this worthwhile cause.
Here are the story blurbs. They all have a Halloween theme. Word counts and links to excerpts on author websites for each story are included where I could find them.

  5. @Nancy & Michelle - thanks for stopping by! When Edie mentioned this book in the spotlight I did here for Galaxy Girls I knew I had to do something for it. I'm sure I'll be doing a review too when I can get to it. It was actually calling to me last night so I started to read Edie's story. It's the same characters as Cattitude! yays!

    @Lisa - I know! It's fantastic! I could so easily see myself walking into a B&N store and seeing this cover on the shelf. Laura Morrigan does an awesome job.
