“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!
