Thank you, Iris, for hosting a guest blog today and helping share my exciting news about a new anthology – one celebrating and honoring sisterhood. – It’s an absolute pleasure sharing this book. I wish you many, many sales ♥
“A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.” — Isadora James
In Celebration of Sisters rejoices in the dynamics of sisters of all phases: sisters that have had a falling out and been reunited, sisters from another mother, sisters we have lost too soon, and even loving thoughts from brothers about their sisters. Overall, whether the sisters don’t see eye to eye, whether they were born from another mother, or whether they’re the best of friends, the message is as Isadora James claims: ‘sisters are a golden thread to the meaning of life.’
Come take a peek as over forty authors share their stories of sisterhood in essays, reflections, and poetry. On some you’ll laugh. On some you’ll cry. But on all, your heart will feel the warmth and love as you read the tales of sisters.
This anthology about sisters actually began last year. Searching for a unique gift for my mother that was about to turn eighty – who didn’t need any more knick-knacks or afghans – I thought of writing a book about mothers to dedicate to her. Alas, I knew that I couldn’t write an entire book in the short time frame I was looking at. An anthology was born, and In Celebration of Mothers was published November 2016.
Another new year rolled around, and what was on the agenda? Another anthology – this one about sisters. Over forty authors contributed essays, poems and reflections for In Celebration of Sisters. Several of them are returning authors from last year’s anthology. Do you know the best part of this whole process? It’s the new friends I’ve discovered on this writing and publishing pathway. My world is larger and richer because of these books. I hope their stories touch your heart and add richness to your life also.
