Miscellany Volume I

Miscellany is our first anthology under the name "Word Addicts." With the name change we decided to change our anthology as well. Although we enjoyed retelling fairy tales in our first two books, we opened Miscellany to all genres of fiction and memoir. We are so pleased with the result!

Along with writers from our previous anthologies such as the amazing A. Shepherd, Allison Brown, Jenna Madsen and others, new arrivals Amy Jorgensen and Cortney Winn added their creativity to Miscellany I. Because it was open to all genres, each writer brought their best work to the table, and it shows.

Whatever your favorite genre, you'll find something you love in this book.
