Author Collaboration FAQs

Since announcing that I am part of a multi-author boxset, I’ve been receiving a lot of questions – questions that (I hope!) have good answers! I wanted to bring them all into one place for you so that you can have a proper read.

What does that even mean, a multi-author boxset?

A typically boxset contains more than one book by the same author – for example, my Conquered Hearts boxset contains three books that are all part of the same series: Conquests, Love Lettersand Captives

A multi-author boxset contains more than one book by different authors. Sometimes they are novellas, like Seduced under the Mistletoe the multi-author boxset that I’m involved with, and sometimes they are full length novels.

How did you find out about it?

I’ve been aware of outstanding multi-author boxsets before, and it’s always been a dream of mine to be in one – it’s an incredible chance to learn from other authors, share your best work with their readers, and reach new people. The lead author (the one in charge of organising the boxset) for my boxset is Emmanuelle de Maupassant, and we’ve worked together before. She got in touch and invited me to join a group that she’s put together.

Who decides if your book is good enough?

Erm…well, I do I guess! Emmanuelle wouldn’t have invited me to join the boxset if she wasn’t convinced that my books were high enough quality, and my countless 5* reviews on Amazon probably counted for something. You have to be very careful when curating a multi-author boxset because you want books that all your readers will enjoy.

What about editors and stuff?

It was down to each of us to ensure that we had our manuscripts properly edited, and so I worked with my trusty editor to ensure that my contribution, Peril with a Prince, was absolutely perfect. Emmanuelle is a talented formatter and so pulled together the finalised manuscript for publication.

How long will the boxset be available?

Together, the 16 novellas will be published as a boxset until the end of January 2019 – but then after that, it’s down to each individual author to decide what they want to do. My book Peril with a Prince will be available as an ebook, but wouldn’t you rather have all 16 for just 0.99?

How do I get my hands on it?!?

Patience! We’re just a few days away, so keep a close eye here on the website and on my social media accounts! [Edit: it’s live! Treat yourself here.]
