My Smiles Became My Shield

I am a new author with a book out. Here is the description:

 

 Hurt and pain lead this boy to the point of death. Only love can rescue Him. He fights the goodness that love brings because of the fear that traps his soul. He resists love because he never had it. This young boy becomes the alcoholic, thief, and suicidal person he never thought he would be. He hides his hurt, pain, and lifestyle, in the smiles he displays to the world. His shield of smiles is now going to be faced with the loving sword that has come upon him... to rescue him from himself.

 

It is currently Amazon.com, so please check it out.

ReThe World Outside the Window anthology


I am proud to be one of nineteen authors included in a terrific anthology that was released this week by RJB Publishing. THE WORLD OUTSIDE THE WINDOW is unique, in that every story is written from the same point of view-a person looking out of a window. They can be young, old, male, female and can be in any location, anywhere in time.

All nineteen of the represented authors have at least one short story on Amazon Shorts. I have four. This book was the idea of one of the authors, picked up by another and gathered steam as it chugged down the track. After two years, and over fifteen hundred posts on our Yahoo Group site, the book is reality! A wonderful, collaborative effort of nineteen people from all over the country plus one international author,who have never met each other.

The book is available on Barnes and Noble and can be ordered from online or in the B&N near you
We were all given the same sets of circumstances that we could use in our story--anything from one of the them to all of them. My story is "Misery Is Company," a scary ghost story

It is truly amazing what nineteen creative authors produced using exactly the same criteria--everything from mystery to romance to sci-fi and more, set in times past, present and future. Treat yourself to a great read.

 

The anthology consists of 19 adult fiction stories by 19 authors, many of them published novelists. The stories run the gamut of fiction, from romance to horror, from suspense to sci-fi and fantasy.

Hi. Just showing off my profile.

I am a freelance writer and novelist. My first novel, The Antiquarian Chronicles,a work of historical fiction, is soon to be released by Tate Publishing. Read my blog at: http://theantiquarianchronicles.blogspot.com/ I am married with two grown children and two adorable grandbabies. I love to hunt, fish, hike, ride horses, read, write, and wood carve. I tie flies for fly fishing, wood carve, draw, paint a little, play the guitar and a couple other instruments a little, and am a self-taught blacksmith. Some people say I look like Teddy Roosevelt. My second novel, a story about four young Hispanic men in the American Southwest and their struggle to survive violence, racism, unemployment, and resolve their debate about war during the Spanish American War, is well under way.

Whoa, Pamela!

 

If you are open to making friends and fans here, you need to set your profile to public. Private is the default.
