What started out as a Facebook Meme – WTRAFSOG – What To Read After Fifty Shades of Grey has progressed to a page with a huge following, a blog, an app and a series of 99cent boxed sets so that readers everywhere could experiment with new to them authors for inexpensive prices. There are currently five of these boxed sets out – organized by the fabulous Summer Daniels – with a 6th on the way!
This is the second boxed set I have participated in, and I love the way it gives readers a chance to experience – in the case – twelve authors!
In this one I am posting my story, Working on Wicked, an erotic Halloween tale that seemed a good seasonal match. The other authors are offering stories that are equally delicious. You can find out all about them at the release party coming up on Monday, September 29 on Facebook. Be sure to pop in throughout the day as different authors take command and offer, insights, excerpts and give-aways!
