Seats are moving for the upcoming 2016 Gay Romance Northwest Meet-Up (come grab your free pass!), but in between all this registration madness, we’re delighted to announce that GRNW’s first charity anthology MAGIC & MAYHEM is now up for pre-order!
Set to release on September 6, 2016, MAGIC & MAYHEM is an anthology that is a mix of both fiction and nonfiction. The anthology will feature 8 new stories by a group of amazing LGBTQ romance authors. Along with these stories, the anthology will feature the past keynotes from GRNW 2013-2015, as well as some new essays.
Proceeds from the anthology will go to support future GRNW programming, like the GRNW Meet-Up conference and more free public reading events and resources for LGBTQ romance readers, authors, and publishers.
