GEMS OF GRATITUDE Cover Reveal

Ta-da! Finally I can reveal to you the second book in the Gems of Sisterhood anthology series! Gems of Gratitude is another very diverse book, this time with the theme of gratitude, which can take so many forms and come about for so many reasons. It comes out November 14, but you can pre-order it now (see the links at the bottom of this post).

My short story “Intent” will be included, and it’s a bit different from my usual works. It focuses on an Amazonian tribe and one warrior’s crucial decision to either disobey and take a chance or do what she’s told and go to war. But maybe those aren’t the only two options… Find out this November!

From the Gems of Strength authors comes the second book in the Gems of Sisterhood series! The theme of this book is, of course, gratitude! Meet Detective Cara Solino, a young woman following in her father’s footsteps. Can she solve the case he was unable to?

Find out how Chloe’s mother discovers a way to keep her daughter’s dream alive under the worst possible circumstances. Read about young Lady Iona, a child of the Elven Forest, as she struggles to give her daughter a fighting chance in a harsh world.

Cheer on Sharliss as she finally takes control of her own life, and becomes a better person. Meet Julie, who gathers information on history, and Jody, an elderly dog whose time to cross the Rainbow Bridge is near. These stories and more are within these pages, just waiting for YOU!

“Intent” is Finished!

My latest short story “Intent” is complete and will be published in the Gems of Gratitude anthology (book 2 in the Gems of Sisterhood anthology series). This is quite a different story for me. Instead of being either in modern times or in the Victorian era, it’s about an Amazon tribe, completely made up. Normally I base my stories in reality, but this time I’ve made up my own world of tribes, rituals, symbols, and more. I have to say, I loved it!

Here’s a little teaser for my story:

I liked this story so much that I want to make a longer work based on it. Until the publication of this story and further stories, you can keep up with the awesome images that inspire me for this concept on a dedicated Pinterest board.

Gems of Gratitude will be released November 14, 2016 across all platforms, even ones you might not associate with book publishing. For now you can pre-order it on Amazon, Smashwords, Google Play, and Google Books.

Book Release: GEMS OF STRENGTH Anthology

Gems of Strength, the first book in the Gems of Sisterhood anthology series, has now been published! WOOHOO! Today is release day, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m going to sit down and binge read the rest of the stories in the book – there are 18 in total, all about women overcoming difficult, and sometimes traumatic obstacles.

My short story is called “Focal Point”, and it revolves around a woman who is slashed in the face on a city street, a crime on the rise in New York. The aftermath of such a vicious and traumatic attack is extremely difficult to deal with, and I did research on real victims of this crime so I could paint an accurate picture of their struggle.

I hope you enjoy the whole anthology, and watch out for Gems of Thanksgiving in November 2016!
