new fantasy fiction series

As if I didn't have enough on my plate...

I belong to a great group of girls known as the Wayside Inn Writer's Society (Google "Wayside Inn" and "Longfellow" if you're curious). We all write fiction of one stripe or another, many of us leaning toward fantasy, so recently we had this great idea...

Why don't we all write a series together? We conceived of a family: nine siblings, each sent off into the world to seek their own adventures. We've got nine authors, one for each sibling, which means nine different settings, plots, styles... in short, the potential for nine really cool books. They're linked because the siblings (against the orders of their evil guardian) write to each other while in exile.

We're calling the series "The Romany Epistles." After literally hundreds of planning emails, the writing has commenced, as each of us tackles the prologue--the banishment of the siblings, written from nine different perspectives.
