So why was the word Coven chosen for the title of our first anthology? In the most basic definition of the word (ignoring the witches, of course) it is a meeting, a gathering. And so is our anthology. But instead of witches coming together, we have a group of seventeen talented fantasy authors. Yet, in a way, they are witches. Not in the ‘dropping a bat’s wing into a boiling cauldron’ sense. (Though…maybe…I don’t really know.) But they’re witches in their own unique special way. They’re wielding their own magic with each and every word they put down on a page. They’re crafting a wondrous story out of nothing but their creativity and imaginations. They’re introducing us to new people and worlds and making us wish it wasn’t fantasy – that it was real.
What do you think of the title? Do you have any ideas for what would make a great cover? Let us know!
