Second Chance – Because every animal deserves a second chance at a furrever home

51j12uq5jpl-_sy346_

Every year seven million companion animals enter animal shelters and are later euthanized. Here at Rock and Roll Saved My Soul, we want to help decrease that number. We believe every pet deserves a second chance. This anthology is a collection of stories about rescue animals, strays, and the animals that have saved us. All proceeds benefit Pet Partners. Together we can save lives and help animals everywhere get a second chance.

I have two stories in this anthology that releases today. One about my current kitty, Miri Billie Joe and one about my old companion who sadly crossed over the Rainbow Bridge a few years back, Cecilia (or Cici as we liked to call her).

Please pick up a copy to read their stories and the other wonderful stories of rescue animals and come by to FB later today for a special event with the authors of the anthology. I will be hosting from 7-8pm Central time and will be giving away some audio book copies of Cecilia’s Tale.

Stories for Change

Every year authors of all genres get together and donate their writing to fantastic causes. I myself have been part of several wonderful charity anthologies. All have been awesome experiences and I highly encourage my author friends on here who have yet to be part of a charity anthology to get involved. The rewards for you and the charity are immense.

Here are some recently published charity anthologies available for purchase. Each contains some amazing stories and you’re sure to be something for everyone in this list.

Let’s start with this beautiful box set anthology in aid of autism awareness. Isn’t that cover amazing? I can’t wait to read these thirteen fantasy tales.

In 2016 I had stories in four charity anthologies. Here’s a run down:

The idea for Stardust, Always was conceived after the deaths of David Bowie and Alan Rickman from cancer. A group us from Facebook’s NaNoWriMo group wanted to do something in honor of the two stars who had a profound effect on so many people’s lives. As a cancer survivor myself I was drawn to this group and was honored to donate a story to this collection.

All proceeds from Stardust Always go to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

We’ve All Been There is a collection of memoirs from eight authors who talk about their personal struggles in the hopes of empowering others going through tough times.

All proceeds from We’ve All Been There go to Project Semicolon.

Proceeds for the two Longest Night Watch anthologies go to Alzheimers’ research. The books were created in honor of the late and great Terry Pratchett and I have a short story in volume 2.

The final charity anthology to which I contributed in 2016 was Rescue Me: Purrfect Companions in aid of the Cat Network. My story in this one is Cecilia’s Tale, which I hope to expand into a picture book coming out later in 2017.

It’s Release Day for Rescue Me – Purrfect Companions. A charity anthology in which I’m privileged to have a story.

My story “Cecilia’s Tale” talks about how my kitty found me in Israel. Cecilia then shared the next 16 years of my life with me and eventually came to America. She passed over the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago, but is still very much in my thoughts.

Synopsis: “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” – Sherlock Holmes.

But what if the truth is not only improbable, but otherworldly? Meet Alistair Gordon and Jerome Garibaldi, two Victorian gentlemen and part-time sleuths. Not only do they follow in the footsteps of the greatest detective who never lived, they meet more than they bargained for when a case of magic goes horribly wrong.

Accompany them on a journey through several Victorian murder mysteries, from a marriage that was not meant to be to a match celebrated with rose-petals. Join Alistair as his investigations lead him to opium dens and follow Jerome turn his life around as he stops being a blackmailing lay-about and becomes lover, lodger and layman detective.

Walk with us through foggy alleyways where hansom cabs and Ladies that are not paint a picture of Victorian London in six illustrated stories of murder, mayhem and magic.
