Truly, Madly, Deeply...

Its not just the name of a fabulous British movie, its also a new multi-author free read site! Over 20 talented authors are contributing to this endeavor and it promises to be fantastic! Our first mission is to write a free short read based on a song title. Mine is scheduled for April of 2011 and is inspired by the classic Jethro Tull ballad 'Wund'ring Aloud.'

The site launches February 12, just in time for Valentines Day! Be sure to come check us out, join in the launch contests and let us show you some love!
