Tower of Destiny coverIf you love epic fantasy, as I do, and you’re tired of waiting for George R.R. Martin to get his act together and finish The Winds of Winter, I’ve got something to keep you busy. I’m delighted to announce that Tower of Destiny, Book Two in Paul W. Martin’s Adepts and Demons series, is now available in print and e-book. Find it here. (And if you haven’t yet read Book One, Path of the Chosen, what are you waiting for?)

For me as an editor, it’s a real treat to handle material that is so engaging. I look forward to every new installment, and am so glad to know that Book Three is well underway. I can’t wait to see where these characters go next!

Congratulations are in order!

The Sweet Dell coverBig congratulations go to author Nicholas Briejer, whose memoir The Sweet Dell: The True Story of One Family’s Fight to Save Jews in Nazi-Occupied Holland, published by Pilgrim Spirit Communications, has been named a finalist for the 2016 Pacific Northwest Writers Association’s Nancy Pearl Book Awards. The first-place winners will be announced on July 30 at the Awards Celebration during the PNWA annual conference in Seattle. So delighted for you, Nick!

In The Sweet Dell, Nick tells not only the story of his maternal grandparents, who were part of the Dutch Resistance during World War II, but also his own quest to uncover this piece of his family’s history. If you haven’t yet read Nick’s powerful narrative, you can find it here.

Newly published: Save the Bones

STB-front-webPilgrim Spirit Communications is delighted to announce the publication of Shannon O’Donnell’s Save the Bones in a new, expanded edition. Originally published in 2013, this second edition includes new material that adds a final chapter.

Save the Bones is one woman’s story of walking with her mother through the twisting, turning, maddening journey that is Alzheimer’s. It’s a journey filled not just with the major life changes that the disease imposes but also the small, intimate moments that mark the slipping away of memory and personality. In prose and poetry that is both honest and poignant, the author shares her own experiences, finding grace and even humor along the way.

If Alzheimer’s has affected you or someone you love, you owe it to yourself to read this book. If you have a friend or relative dealing with Alzheimer’s, give them a copy. Find the print version of Save the Bones on Amazon; second edition ebook coming soon.
