I sent the ARC of Dreams and Desires to Romantic Times for a March review. Cross your fingers, people!
As many of you know, Freya's Bower will be releasing its first charity anthology on February 1, 2007 to benefit a battered woman's shelter in Florida. We had an overwhelming turnout for the anthology (18 authors), for which we are truly grateful. The anthology is now some 85,000 words in stories. For the entire list of authors who donated stories, see the right side bar. There are links to their websites.
Although it is not officially released, Barnes & Noble already has it listed on their site in both paperback and hard cover form. We will be offering it in print and ebook format at Freya's Bower. It will be available for purchase through FB on February 1st. Advance sales will be taken come December 15th.
Most of the stories are sweet romance, although we do have a few tangy, spicy, and sizzling.
In other news, Pervalism is now listed at Barnes & Noble in print form. Of course, you can still buy it through Wild Child Publishing in either its ebook or print format.
We are primed to take over the world. Muhahahaha! LOL Uh, yeah. Right.

Sorcha's Heart has received another excellent review.
Michelle Puffer at Wild Child Press has given Sorcha a rating of 5 Cats ... WOW!!!!
Here's an excerpt from her very nice review:
Sorcha's Heart held me captive from the word go. The writing is impeccable, and the story is very unique. In the quest to unite two worlds, a heroine finds herself squarely in the middle, with an amazing hero by her side.
