Dreams and Desires

We typically do not profile e-books or electronically published books our clients write or contribute to. This release, however, is one we'd like to bring to your attention.

True love, freedom, money, knowledge, revenge... Dreams and desires of the ordinary woman, or man. From best friends who discover love to a bank teller who exacts revenge to a succubus who loves art more than men, this collection of nineteen stories celebrates the attainment of all one can dream or desire. Which one do you secretly yearn for?

By purchasing this collection, you can help turn someone's nightmare into the pursuit of dreams. Every year, four million women are assaulted by their partners. At Freya's Bower, we want to do our part to bring this statistic down to zero. To this end, all net proceeds from every Dreams and Desire anthology purchased will go to a battered woman's shelter. Through education and support, we can make a difference.

Authors: (in alphabetical order of last name): Jenna Bayley-Burke, Faith Bicknell-Brown, Amanda Brice, Sela Carsen, Rachelle Chase, TKA's own Gemma Halliday, Candace Havens, Zinnia Hope, Jackie Kessler, Susan Lyons, Richelle Mead, Debbie Mumford, Rhonda Stapleton, Bebe Thomas, Emily Veinglory, Sasha White, Lois Winston, Shaunna Wolf, and Kit Wylde.

This release has a little bit of everything for everyone -- sweet romances, romances with a little spice, erotic romance. It is also available as an e-book, paperback, and hardback.

Interested in learning more about the contributing authors? Amanda Brice has interviewed each author on her blog.

And, Gemma Halliday will be hosting a live book launch party on February 1st from 8-10 Eastern / 5-7 Pacific. Everyone loves a party!!!

Thanks for posting about this. I hadn't known about it and I always am eager to support the causes such books are created for, especially this one.

I'm come you "typically do not profile e-books or electronically published books our clients write or contribute to."

Is it because they're generally not TKA-involved projects, or is there something about e-publishing that makes them not worth mentioning?

Blogger or Google ate my original reply, Natalie, but e-publishing is certainly not something we "frown upon." We have many prolific e-published authors whom we enjoy working with and are thrilled to represent as they move forward in their writing careers.

But your question has given me an excellent idea! So, thank you!!

Thanks, Jana! It's always a question in people's minds whether e-books are considered "legitimate" or worth attention (of any kind) so I was curious. :)
