Dear Juliana,
Your confidence got my attention but your description is kinda vague. If I may ask, what is your story about?
It's actually an anthology of nine separate stories, all fantasy but all very different, written by nine authors, and with no overriding theme, only that the lead character is female.

For instance, EJ Tett (that's Mouse here on Chrons) has written a fairy tale-like piece set in modern times, while Rosie Oliver (Serendipity) has set hers in a future with AI; Sarah Horvoka (Guanazee) uses an American locale, as does Juliana herself, while Jo Zebedee's is set in Ireland, and mine and Liz Powell's (allmywires) in a kind of medieval-type England, but all of us are showing how dangerous the fae and their powers can be in one way or another; Sue Boulton's feels very historical and deals with magic and memory and sadness, while Kerry Buchanan's is fae-filled and fun all the way.

As I say, all very different, though in her wonderful Introduction for us, Teresa Edgerton thought it was no coincidence that many of the stories share nature themes.
I didn't write a story and I had nothing to do with producing the anthology, so I felt quite honored to be asked to write an introduction. Best of all, it meant that I had the opportunity to read the stories far in advance of publication. All this time, I've felt like I was in a possession of a wonderful secret that the rest of the world didn't know about as yet, because the stories really are enchanting!
This is only being promoted because some people -- who shall remain nameless -- want to steal us away from real life.

How do I know this? Because I've been successfully stolen away.
