It’s release day! Fireside by Moms Who Write is finally available, where all books are sold, and we’re so excited! Let’s look at this beauty a little more…
A different kind of project
This project was so much different than our anthologies of the past. When we started collecting stories and publishing, we went to non-fiction, and we loved reading the words of your hearts. The Of Us series will always be the heart and soul of MWW. But we wanted to branch out, to stretch our wings and see if we could fly.
So many of us at MWW are Fall fans—Halloween in particular. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our love of the creepy and the spooky than by opening submission for our first fiction anthology.
With Fireside, instead of heartbreak, tears, and gut-wrenching honesty, we got thrills and “OMG” and “WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!”
Modern legends and lore
The idea for Fireside came out of our love of legends and lore. We wanted to give authors a chance to birth new legends from their words.
We are a people of oral traditions, telling our stories to seek connection, and the fire has always been our story-telling place. The spellbinding nature of fire elicits from us tales of magic, of darkness, of the macabre.
Moons. Witches. Folklore. Ghosts. This collection of short stories and poems is full of the tales we tell at the fireside.
