Mad Courage

Today’s book blog post is a shameless plug for a collection to which I’ve contributed my brand-new story, ‘Lady in Red’ (not to be confused with the song of the same title, which will make your ears bleed).  ALL proceeds from sales of this book go to the Guthy Jackson Charitable Foundation.
Here’s the scoop:
Nineteen authors from around the world were given six weeks or less to produce “a story involving a mother somehow.” The result is a gorgeously eclectic collection of tales that will make you laugh, cry, and truly appreciate the “mad courage” of motherhood.
Laura ChapmanFrancine LaSalaNikki MahoodHeather McCoubrey, and Karen E. Martin each present unique takes on impending motherhood, while Sheryn MacMunnkc wilderand Julie Valerieportray the end of the journey. Samantha Stroh BaileyLouise Wiseand Maria Schulz show the pride and peril of dealing with teenage daughters.  Elke FeuerDiana Shafter Gliedmanand Donna Valenti demonstrate that a mother’s work is never done, even under the craziest of circumstances.  Regina-Cash ClarkWendy Janesand Monique McDonell explore the impact on lives in which mothers go “missing,” while Carey Heywood and Jen Tucker warm your heart and tear it out, respectively.
A Kind of Mad Courage - the perfect Mother’s Day treat!
