Light in the Darkness Anthology Release Day Blitz

Today, I'm excited to reveal the cover of an anthology which includes a couple wonderful UtopYA authors. I can't wait to get my hands on this one. My ROW80 update is at the end of this post.

Thank you for checking out the cover reveal for the upcoming release of YA Anthology Light in the Darkness!

About Light in the Darkness

Being young is hard, especially with a rough home life. Not to mention if you have a special ability that sets you apart from others, leaving you feeling like an outsider, or the freak that no one understands. Living in the shadows doesn’t have to last forever. Only you can change the road you're on, just look within yourself and accept who you are. Once you do, you will find your Light in the Darkness.

Anthology Contributors:  JP Gibbs, Dennis Tyler, Emily Piland, Timothy L. Frasier, Will Overby, Tabitha Short, Elizabeth Loraine, Carlyle Labuschagne, DJ Shaw, Candy Crum, Stacie Wilson and Casey L. Bond

The e-book version of Light in the Darkness will release on August 11, 2014. All proceeds from this anthology will be donated to Literacy for Incarcerated Teens (LIT), a non-profit organization based in New York. 

A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) Update

I finished the rough draft of my anthology at just over 20K. I'm so excited to see where the story goes, especially since I'm working with an amazing and talented group of ladies. Squee!

With all the writing, I did miss posting my ROW80 update yesterday, but I have kept up with my sponsor duties. Speaking of which, my sponsor post is live today: Easier Said Than Done. It was a very honest post, but I hope it still motivates.

I'm off to smooth out the rough edges of my anthology piece, so I can get it to my group by Wednesday. Next up, wrap up Chasing Forgiveness. No more excuses. Just butt in chair and writing.

Wishing everyone an amazing week!
