San Diego Authors Shine in New Anthology
San Diego, CA, November 05, 2021 --( The San Diego Writers and Editors Guild has launched "The Power of Ten" - their tenth annual anthology. The collection of selected works gives readers a taste of San Diego writing, featuring fifty-three stories and six poems that range from the intimate to the macabre.

Each submission received careful review by a panel of experienced authors and editors before being accepted. According to interim Guild president Bob Doublebower, “This anthology is a milestone event. Many of our members who were first published in our annual anthology have gone on to successfully publish elsewhere and grow their careers - a key part of the Guild’s mission. It has also become our most successful fundraiser and a source of pride for our membership.”

Anthology co-editor, Rivkah Sleeth, commented that the anthology can range from introspective to hilarious, and sometimes is chilling. “You can expect a surprising range of topics within 'The Power of Ten.'”

It is essential to the Guild that local bookstores and library systems are supported. Marcia Buompensiero, anthology co-editor, is working on events that will bring authors, readers, booksellers, and librarians together. “We want our authors to meet all the people who can make a book a success. It is especially important for new and experienced authors to interact directly with readers.”

New this year, "The Power of Ten" is available as an e-book and, along with the print edition, can be purchased from,,, and other online retailers. The anthology will soon be available at local bookstores across San Diego County.
