Gingerbread Dreams by Sheri Williams, Erzabet Bishop, and Skye Montague

Hi there! I’m Sheri Williams, and I’m here to talk with you about collaboration. A great topic in general, but even cooler when talking about writing a book! I have been super blessed to be able to have done a collaboration twice, but the one I am here to talk about today is Gingerbread Dreams. I’ve had the best time working with the folks at Silk Words so when the opportunity arose to do a collaborative work for them, I jumped at it!

Working in a set of parameters can be hard, but when the people you are working with are so open about helping you and listening to your ideas, then it makes it worth the extra creative energy. Along the way of planning this Christmas story, I’ve talked to new authors I’d never known about, I’ve learned about new ways to market, and I’ve learned how to better interact on Yahoo Groups and Google hangouts. 

I also wrote a kick butt story, or at least, I hope I did. I’ve not had the chance to read the branches the other two lovely ladies came up with, so I will be able to have fun with the pick-your-path just as much as any reader who picks up our story. The folks at Silk Words make writing such a joy, and the interactions I’ve had with the other two writers, Skye and Erzabet, have been incredible as well. Both ladies have had much more experience than me, and they have both been easy to converse with and helpful in this new endeavor.

I really hope you like what we accomplished. If you do, it might just give me the option to do it again. Cheers!
