This weekend I'm attending the Melbourne (Australian) launch of 'Short & Twisted', I have a crime short story 'Playing Possum' in this mixed anthology. (http://www.celapenepress.com.au/
) I've attended other launches where there have been multiple contributors to a book, and the added benefit is that they bring all their colleagues, friends and family and often reach markets which are outside the normal literary circles. All are working on behalf of the one title.
Anyone else with positive ( or negative) experiences of being in an anthology?
