I am looking for authors for the next anthology of "Sharing" stories. The anthology, the second of men's stories, is scheduled to be released in November, but to date I have had only two authors commit. I'd like to have 20.
If you are, or know of, a male who might be interested in sharing their story, please email me at email@example.com
The Sharing anthologies (volumes 1 through 3) have been so well received I'm hoping that the tradition can continue. You can see some background about this project on the Sharing website here.
