Leaning Into the Abyss

In a parallel universe, Rhea’s husband-to-be Andrew dies on their wedding day, falling from a cliff while her best friend Luke watches. She is besieged by grief, unanswered questions, and the swirling hurricane of demands Andrew’s parents make on her, ordering her to restore a family treasure.

A widow in one reality and seeking normality in another. But she is drowning in memories of her mother, who died when she was a teenager. She resists the smothering control of her elder sister Phoebe and feels betrayed by her father’s passivity. Meanwhile Luke, who should be her rock, vanishes into his own pain.

The time has come to stop meeting the expectations of others. To find meaning, Rhea must open up the dreams she once held dear. She accepts a new job in Mexico as a psychologist in an orphanage. To find fulfillment, she will need to leave those she loves and strike out on her own. But something is still not settled back home, and she’ll have to face the storm head on.

Can the Day of the Dead mark the day Rhea truly starts living? When universes run parallel to one another, where does true happiness lie?

Devolution

Human beings are on the verge of extinction. Animals, plants, and even bacteria adapt to an unstable environment, while humanity is losing the evolutionary race. Its only hope is science.

The World Health Organization creates the Modified Project – a program to design responsive, resilient humans able to survive the ever-changing elements.

Selah is a new world child, built to excel and evolve via genetic mutations. She is a success, exceeding expectations, but at what cost?

Alienated from her peers, separated from her parents, and unsure whether she is a child with a mind of her own or a medical experiment, Selah has questions.

Questions she keeps to herself until her scientist father goes missing after a heated dispute with the head of the WHO. Now she wants to know what, how, and who is at the heart of this mystery. Shaken to her core, she learns the secret is herself.

Emotionless

Elias is a changeling, a man without hormones, emotionless.

Emotional Modification Therapy has made logic and reason powerful, but new information questions the validity of the process. Elias has no desires. It wouldn’t be natural. Until a woman, Aloisa, walks into his lab at the hospital and unfamiliar cravings overpower him.

Aloisa’s husband, Jordan, is convinced that the monetary reward for becoming a changeling will be enough for Aloisa to live lavishly. Against her wishes, he leaves. She knows why; she refuses to let him disappear. She would much prefer love to money.

In pursuit of Jordan and freedom, Aloisa and Elias are both on the run from the government. Their paths intersect, and their true connection becomes clear; Elias’s emotions return with a vengeance.

But will they be allowed to survive after all they’ve been through?

Blink

Piper is a control freak, plagued by a terrible form of magic.

If she doesn’t maintain her vigilance, those she cares for find tragedy. Any moment of contentment, any
semblance of happiness, and Piper watches her world spiral out of control.

As a child she was diagnosed with a chronic disease, only creating more reasons to manage every aspect of
life. So when she starts to fall for Trey, the local barman and history buff, she has to make some decisions before her curse takes effect. It may already be too late. Either way, it will end in her having to let go.

Giving Birth to Motherhood

Embrace being a mom through the powerful healing process of writing your birth story

On the other side of pregnancy and birth lies the journey of motherhood. But when you enter that phase of life burdened by a traumatic birth experience, you might find it harder to bond with your baby, connect with your new identity, and move forward in your relationships. 

Sometimes simply having a healthy baby and a successful birth is just not enough. And yet it’s not always obvious that a birth was problematic, or that it could be holding you back from healing. Giving Birth to Motherhood will help you explore what you envisioned for your birth, understand what actually happened, and journal throughout the process to find catharsis.

Amie and Katie are both mothers with a passion for helping people heal. Amie is an editor and author who believes in the incredible power of the written word. Katie is a transformative grief guide and licensed counselor who is on a mission to help others face the hidden grief in their lives.
