February 12, 2014—The Indie Collaboration has released the third entry into its unique anthology series. This anthology, Kiss and Tales: A Romantic Collection, is a collection of free original tales brought to you by a group of independent authors who call themselves, The Indie Collaboration.
Contributing author, Alan Hardy says, “This time, we present a chocolate box selection of love stories. Some are romantic, some funny, some sad and some mysterious. Whatever the style, there will be a story in here that will melt even the most hardened of hearts.”
Kiss and Tales can be downloaded for free at Smashwords and is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Kobo, Pothi and at other retailers.
The founding member, UK-based author Peter John says, “The Indie Collaboration grew out of a group of like-minded independent authors. Together, we decided to show the world how great works of fiction can be created without the involvement of any large publishing companies. Creating a direct channel between ourselves and our readers is of the utmost importance to us. Each author has freely donated their time and work and are committed to the Indie Collaboration’s cause of offering the best of indie authors in bite size pieces for free.”
The first two entries in the collection are Tales from Dark Places: The Halloween Collection and Yuletide Tales: A Festive Collective. The list of contributors for each collection changes depending on each individual contributor’s interests and area of writing specialty.
Contributing author Kristina Blasen says, “The Indie Collaboration is made up of a wonderful group of independent writers. Reading anthologies is a great way to tap into a wealth of mostly undiscovered, yet very talented writers. We are truly a diverse group of writers and we have members from all over the world. It shows in the unique stories and collections that we are able to create. You’re not going to find this mix of quality, originality and multi-cultural flair reading works put out by the large publishing houses.”
The next installment to be released by The Indie Collaboration is already in the works and will be out just in time for Easter on April 18, 2014. It’s called Snips, Snails and Puppy Dog Tales and is a collection of original children’s stories.
