“I just finished reading “Where You Belong,” one of the novellas in this anthology. There was so many loveable characters in this story, from the rather eccentric hippie grandfather Papa Joe to sweet little Abby who struggles with learning how to read. I loved the seeing the relationship between Zander and Hendrix develop from friendship to more and also the message of what’s really important in life and choosing love and people over prestige and wealth. I look forward to reading more stories in this collection!” ~ Jennie F.

“This honest review is given in lieu of receiving the book early.

Grace in Sweetwater County has once again shown me how a great writer can bring the reader into the story as if we were there with them.  If I could live there I would move today and envelop the love these people have for one another and to belong to such a large family circle.

The collection of stories have been an inspiration of love, family and how such stories can relate to everyday real life.” ~ Tamara P.

5 STARS

“Grace in Sweetwater County was a beautiful story focusing on the challenges and struggles of life. I could relate to the loss of a child and the raw emotion behind that. Add to it a marriage on its last leg and a child struggling with dyslexia and some real feelings come out. I shed tears for the characters as their loss became my own. With a child who struggles to read, I know exactly the fears and anxiety facing this family. Thank you for this beautiful, charitable anthology. We struggle together, each one of us supporting the next.” ~ Cissie P.

A Generous Gift

Most people know Sherrilyn Kenyon as an amazing author of fantastical stories that provide hours and hours of entertainment, but there is another side to her. Ms. Kenyon is also a giving person. That’s why I was not surprised when she agreed to write a foreword for the fundraiser box set, Love & Grace. As previously posted,  all proceeds of this box set will be donated to Gracepoint School – A School for the Dyslexic Learner. What I wasn’t expecting was such a heartfelt, emotional, and honest story of the trials and tribulations of her life. Yes, I cried and was inspired by every word. I cannot explain how excited and proud I am to produce Love & Grace with Ms. Kenyon’s foreword in it. I know everyone will find it truly inspiring!

If you have not heard of Sherrilyn Kenyon, you need to check out her amazing books at  http://www.sherrilynkenyon.com now! You will NOT be disappointed. Also, I highly suggest you read her ‘road to publication‘ on her website. It is a story that will capture your attention and heart.

The authors who have donated their stories to Love & Grace, Gracepoint, and all the Gracepoint students humbly thank you for your genorous gift, Ms. Kenyon. You are truly an inspiration to all of us.

FUNDRAISER – GRACEPOINT – A School for the Dyslexic Learner

Romance for the soul, a gift from the heart.

This collection of sweet and inspirational novellas has an uplifting love story for everyone. These stories bring a touch of grace to romance, and a touch of romance to your heart.

Our twelve authors have collaborated to bring together this collection. Each story relates to dyslexia in some way, and the full proceeds from all the stories benefit Gracepoint – A School for Dyslexia. This box set is our collective gift of love and support to you and the children Gracepoint serves.

Can a town save a marriage? Will a high school reunion offer a second chance at love? Can a man with a secret and a woman afraid of being hurt learn to trust? Can a girl running from her past escape her heart? Will a woman trapped in the past discover the true importance of family? Can unexpected love become the best present ever?

You’ll find hours of enjoyment as well as a satisfying ending to each story. No cliffhangers and no partial novels are offered here, just an escape into worlds of love, families, and grace.

I’d like to give a heart felt thank you to Gracepoint staff for all their hard work behind the scenes. Susan, Joy and Karla, this wouldn’t be possible without all your input, guidance, and team work. Sherrilyn Kenyon for her generous gift of words for the foreword. Airicka Pheonix, thank you for saving us at the eleventh hour! Also, Lady Amber, thank you for holding my hand, and donating so much time and amazing marketing skills to this project.

A special thank you to all the authors who donated stories; Lindi Peterson, Hildie McQueen, Sally Kilpatrick, Linda Joyce, Airicka Phoenix, M. K. Smith, Lori Freehand, Alexandrea Weis, Nicole Zoltack, Kirsten Fay, and Walt Mussell. Your generosity is beyond words. With out you, this fundraiser would not be possible. I thank you. The school thanks you. The children thank you.

Contract Signed with Entangled Publishing

I’m excited to share that I’ve signed a contract for my new adult, edgy, contemporary romance with Entangled Publishing for their Embrace line.

This was a decision I didn’t take lightly, since I’ve enjoyed self-publishing so much. All of you readers have been amazing, and I’m so lucky to have such a talented and giving fan base that have been with me on this journey. I promise that this new contract will not in any way distract from my sweet romance series that most of you love. That being said, I believe it was the right move. Based on the success Entangled Publishing has had so far, their current marketing plans, stellar editors, and so many happy authors that I spoke to,  I truly believe that Entangled is the right home for this specific book. If all goes well, I hope to produce more in the series with them.

I do not have any further information on this specific book since the ink is barely dry on the contract. I hesitate to even share the title, since I know anything can change when you sign with a publisher. I promise to keep you updated once I receive a publication date, cover, or anything else. 🙂

The one thing I can share about this book is that even though it is completely fictional, true life events inspired the story. My heart and soul are poured into this book, and I look forward to sharing the story with you. Even if you are a sweet romance fan, I hope you’ll give this new series a try. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for all your support. I couldn’t have made it this far with out each of you!
