Interview with the EditorWe see some big names in Legacy Regina Calcaterra, whose memoir Etched in Sand was a New York Times best seller; Kristopher Jansma (The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards), winner of the 2014 Sherwood Anderson Award for Fiction; Jenny Milchman (Cover of Snow), winner of the Mary Higgins Clark Award for best suspense novel of 2013-and that's just to name a few! How did you manage to assemble such a list of talented authors?
We were inspired by the #30Authors blog event hosted by The Book Wheel. So we thought, how about featuring the work of these authors in an anthology? We liked the idea of best-selling authors, award-winning authors and a few talented debut authors collaborating on a project. We invited them to participate, and to our delight, they were just as excited to contribute to such an anthology as we were to publish it.Why the theme of legacy?
Words remain. And the writer's art is created through words. It seemed the perfect subject to explore through fiction and nonfiction stories. What is the meaning of life? How do you find meaning in life? Long after we've left this world, our legacy remains. Or doesn't. Or remains only in the minds of those who knew us, those whose lives we've touched. Those we've written to, or about. What mark would you leave? How should people remember you? Should they remember you?What sorts of tales will we find in the book?
Our writers wrote along a common theme, legacy, yet each author has a different take on the idea. You'll find love stories, stories of family secrets, friendship and life-changing experiences, an on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller, a World War II mystery and Holocaust remembrance, stories of mean girls, and a tribute to rock & roll. Legacy has something for everyone.
