Murph thinks she can tell who edited which stories. Maybe she's right. We're about to find out, and everyone can play along.
I do love a good game, so here's what we'll do. Player's choice -- look at volumes 23, 24, 25 or 26. Or 27, which comes out in July, if you can get your hands on it before the deadline.
Anyone who can correctly name which stories in an antho were edited or line edited by Alicia or I will have your name entered into a drawing. Winner will get "Wicked Temptation" by Liane Gentry Skye, a July e-book that kicks off our "Three Kinds of Wicked" series.
Deadline for entering? Um, I want to give you enough time. How about three weeks? July 7 will be the deadline. Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by then.
Gotta give you fair warning, just in case you were planning on asking our authors for the correct answers. Because of production tangles, some of our editors had to pinch-hit on some of these volumes. And only I know the whole truth about who worked on what.
And that, dear readers, deserves a heheheheheheh at the end. ;)
ETA: In my usual magpie fashion (ooh! shiny! I wants it, I does!), I didn't think through all the rules of the game before declaring the game on. Thank you, commenters, for guiding me with your questions. :) Here are a few more details.
Every Secrets antho has four stories. For each one, you choices are: Alicia, Theresa, both, or neither. Every correct answer gets you an entry in the drawing. So there are four chances with each antho.
We'll notify winners via email, but we'll also want to announce who gets the free book. I'll probably run some kind of tally of totals -- you know, like maybe X% got it that we did such and such story. Not sure it will be a worthy teaching tool, but what the hell. It will be fun. And it's shiny.
