Mercyverse Anthology Discussion
« on: January 02, 2013, 05:50:27 pm »
Ann Peters, Patty's assistant posted this on FB
Happy, happy day - Patty is almost done with Ben's story and it's awesome and funny!  She said she will probably end up writing two stories about Samuel and Ariana, and definitely one for Tom and Moira!  I don't think she'll be writing a story about Bran...nothing less than Leah's death will make the fans happy and that isn't going to happen (as far as I know, that is...Patty is a sneaky little devil!). :)  (for those of you who weren't aware, Patty is writing a book of short stories about the supporting characters in both the Mercy and Alpha and Omega series  bOuNcY bOuNcY


ETA: Subject change.

I'm so excited! Especially for Samuel and Ariana's story.  :-LOVE
This is a signature. It doesn't look like much, but it has magical properties which can turn dirtbags into toads. May cause light-headedness, dizziness, rosacea, frequent urination, heart palpitations, unnatural urge for grilled cheese, and in most cases works as an aphrodisiac.

Sounds great, can't wait. But I'm wondering if this anthology is going  to be all new work with the previous short stories still only in their anthologies or if they will be included.

I think Patty mentioned that some of the previous stories will be compiled as part of the anthology as well.

Thanks. That rang a bell with me, but I couldn't find it and wondered if I was just hoping I'd seen it.

Kind of disappointed to hear that there may not be a Bran story, I've always wanted to hear more about Mercy's childhood with the Marrok. Maybe even Mercy's infamous crash told from Bran's viewpoint.

I'm not sure WHICH stories she's including.  I don't think she's figured that out yet!  Her plan is to include several of her previously published stories (particularly those that introduce characters that later appear in the books) as well as writing a number of new stories.  The plan is to have about half of the content previously published (to save people from buying a herd of anthologies) and half or a little better than half new content.  I've got Ben's story sitting on my desk right now, and she's working on a story for Samuel.  She hasn't decided, exactly, what other stories to write, but it's due by this time next month!   :o

Is this right? She suggests a story about when Bran became a werewolf could be happening... bOuNcY
