So, Romancing Austin (in which I have a story) releases today.
This is a crazy little project I did with my Austin drinking buddies. The concept sounds simple, we all write stories that intersect at a SXSW party in an Austin penthouse. We're all romance writers, so they are all contemporary romance.
The "crazy" part is where we failed to limit ourselves to a heat level or sub-genre. So. Out of seven stories, mine is the only LGBT (m/m), there are two paranormals, and heat levels vary widely.
I had a blast! However, I'm wondering if we will attract all types of readers? Or if everyone will be turned off by something?
My guess is we will do fairly well during the introductory pricing ($0.99) - but I'm not sure how we will fare later at $3.99. I'm feeling nervous, because some of my readers only read m/m - so I hope I'm not deadweight at normal price.
Anybody else ever do a cross-genre anthology like this? What was your experience?
(Yeah, I know, most of this is release day nerves - I guess I'm really just asking for some hand-holding).
