Stories of Strength: An Anthology Benefiting Red Cross

My personal essay about strength and starting over, entitled "Perseverance," has been selected to appear in the upcoming anthology, Stories of Strength. Stories of Strength is the brainchild of Jenna Glatzer, proclaimed author and Editor-in-Chief of AbsoluteWrite.com. She approached the AbsoluteWrite community, and received an outstanding response.

Some well-known names of those who have contributed stories include: science-fiction guru Orson Scott Card, famed actor/author Wil Wheaton, Robin Lee Hatcher, Jenna Glatzer, along with many other prolific freelancers and authors.

All proceeds from the sale of this anthology will go directly to the Red Cross for the hurricane relief effort. All authors and editors are donating our work for this worthy cause. This book would make a wonderful gift for any occasion and it is a gift that will keep on giving. For more information, please visit: Stories of Strength.

I'll be adding links to my blog and my web site where you can purchase the book when it is officially released. Please be sure to buy a copy!

Make me smile. Leave a comment...

I don't know why I've never noticed your blog before, it's been right in front of my face this whole time. Oh yeah, that's it. We rarely see what's right in front of us, do we? LOL

Just wanted to say that now I know where you are, I'll be reading you. I just started a blog on here myself. I have had a blog or two before, but lost interest in them. Maybe that won't happen this time. I need to keep writing, even if it is just my ramblings and nonsense.

I'm trying to keep a low profile here, but I bet you can guess who I am. ;)

Take care.
