The ten authors of this anthology are currently participating in the Masquerade Ball Bloghop. Each post features an anonymous author, a piece of fan art with a masked story character, and a teaser scene related to the story that is not included in the publication. On release day, everyone will unmask their character. If that sounds fun, feel free to stop by and read everyone's posts!
