Local Chapter of Romance Writers of America Honors Organization's Objective of Advancing Writers
Online PR News – 06-November-2019 – Charleston, SC, November 5, 2019 – The South Carolina chapter of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Lowcountry Romance Writers of America, has published an anthology featuring fourteen romance writers in and around the Lowcountry area. Seven of the authors are making their professional debut with this book.
The anthology, titled "Love in the Lowcountry", features stories set in the South Carolina Lowcountry during the winter holiday season. The anthology includes stories in a variety of genres, including contemporary, paranormal, dark, sweet, and mature romance. It is available exclusively on Amazon.com in e-book and paperback formats.
The project took a remarkable five months to complete from start to finish. "This group of women is amazing. We decided on a date and everyone focused on getting there. Whether it was writing their own story or encouraging other authors, everyone was all in. We even had members who are not in the anthology taking an active role in helping us reach this goal. I have never been more impressed or proud in my professional life," said chapter president, Amy Quinton.
The project embodied several of the RWA's core values: freely sharing ideas and knowledge, as well as fostering creative and professional growth. In addition to supporting the writing community, RWA encourages those who want to become published authors to do so. The Love in the Lowcountry anthology helped seven writers achieve that goal.
"The members of this chapter banded together to create an anthology of wonderful stories that are as diverse as we are. It's been exciting to watch pre-published authors become published authors, and everyone was able to learn from everyone else. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career and I'm proud to be a participant in this anthology and this chapter," said chapter vice president Savannah J. Frierson.
Proceeds from the anthology go directly to the Lowcountry Romance Writers of America chapter, a non-profit organization. Each month, the chapter hosts a meeting that includes author networking and a training session that focuses on elements of the writing craft, the business of being an author, and supporting each other regardless of where people are in their writing journeys.
