Stories of Strength Anthology Update

Received an e-mail from Jenna Glatzer with the Stories of Strength manuscript attached. She and her wonderful crew of volunteers have done a wonderful job on this anthology. I’m proud to be a part of such a worthy cause. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to disaster relief charities.
My essay, “Perseverance,” is good to go and will appear in the "Strength to Start Over" section of the anthology. I began reading the stories by other AW members…need to get more Kleenex before I continue. Wonderful compilation of Stories of Strength! AbsoluteWrite and its members rock!

Here is the link to the Stories of Strength anthology website.
