A group of authors (many I know) have banded together for a good cause. You can’t go wrong with these stories. Bonus: Your money goes to a good cause
LOVE & GRACE
A 12-story book collection, designed to raise awareness and support for students with dyslexia. Dyslexia is a common learning challenge estimated to impact one out of every five people according to The Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity. The foreword is by New York Times Bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon, who also lives with the challenges of dyslexia and she has placed more than 75 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga.
Twelve award-winning authors have contributed to bring together LOVE & GRACE, a collection of inspirational novellas. Readers of the LOVE & GRACE book collection will find hours of enjoyment as well as a satisfying ending to each story with each story relating to dyslexia in its own way. 100 percent of the proceeds from this anthology will benefit GRACEPOINT, a unique school for the dyslexic learner located in Cobb County.
This project is close to my heart since I’ve personally experienced the struggle of dyslexia when my son was diagnosed with dyslexia. To my surprise, I discovered that we share many of the same learning challenges. Although, I’ve never been diagnosed formally, it is obvious that I suffer the same challenges in life as my father and my son. My journey to find a better education for him than what I received, I went in search of the best learning environment available for my son. As I began the search for the right school, I realized the need not only for more options, but also for the funds necessary to provide a specialized education for children struggling in traditional schools. Through this journey, I’ve developed a strong desire to educate communities of the learning challenge I share with my son.
August of 2016 marks GRACEPOINT’s fifth year providing the community with a learning environment tailored to meet the needs of dyslexic children. The multi-sensory learning approach is based upon the Orton-Gillingham teaching method. The mission of the school is to equip dyslexic students with the skills needed to develop into independent and confident learners through sequential, systematic and multisensory instruction.
I’m excited to spearhead a fundraising project to help offset some of the many expenses GRACEPOINT faces daily. In the box set, Love & Grace, I chose to include the next book in my sweet romance series, Sweetwater County (rated PG) due to it’s popularity. It is a small town romance full of family trials, friendly competition, and community love.
The e-book version of LOVE & GRACE will be on sale for an introductory price of 99 CENTS from August 1st-September 6th at the following online retailers: ibooks, Amazon, Nook, and Kobo.

Julie Miller was my neighbor at a book signing event. We shared books. I’m sorry it took me so long to read hers. It is very well done and exciting. Looking for a summer read this is a good one.
