We've been talking about doing this for ages, so we're incredibly excited to tell you about it. We'll have more info as we get closer to the release. But right now, we want to share one important piece with all of you, and that's the dedication. You see, we're dedicating the entire anthology to our wonderful Superromance editors, and we want everyone to know just how special they are to us. Here's what we said:
This anthology could not and would not have happened without the encouragement and support of the amazing Superromance editorial team – Victoria Curran, Karen Reid, Megan Long, Claire Caldwell, Piya Campana, and Deirdre McCluskey. They were not part of its development but they went above and beyond to smooth the path for us, both directly (legalities!) and indirectly (making our in-person meetings possible). There is a rumor that wine may have been involved in the process, but our lips are sealed.
The editor-author relationship is a unique one, built on trust, honesty, wisdom, and vulnerability. Authors pour their hearts onto the page and hand the result over to editors, who have the responsibility of guiding the author toward a stronger story without losing either the heart of the book or the spirit of the author. The Superromance editors excel at this delicate balance. Each author in this anthology will tell you that she is a better writer because of her editor, and each time, it will be truth.
We, the authors, dedicate this anthology to our editors – the women who have taken our words and dreams and hearts and turned them into something so much more than we could have ever imagined. The days of Superromance are drawing to a close, but our memories and appreciation and good wishes will live on. Never stop being amazing, ladies.
