Arise: Stories of Hope and Encouragement (Written for Divorced Women, by Divorced Women)




Recently I was listening to a religious program on television. The preacher was talking about the responsibility we all have to help one another, lift one another, and make a difference whenever we can. His words moved me. I started thinking about the things I've always wanted to accomplish as an author--not just with my writing, and not just with my career, but with making a difference in the lives of others.

As a woman who's gone through divorce and has watched many of my friends and family members go through it too, one thing I've noticed time and time again is how long it takes many of my loved ones to bounce back again once the mirror shatters. I've watched them struggle. Sometimes for months, sometimes for years as they try to pick up the pieces, find their identities, and figure out how to be happy again.

Though some of us do pick up and bounce back quickly and fully, it's a rare phenomenon. Many people get stuck, unsure about what they need to do to feel whole again. Sometimes all a person really needs is inspiration and support, to feel a sense of hope and encouragement, to be shown how to free themselves from their unhealthy past so they can step into the light and never look back again.

This month I started a new book project called Arise: Stories of hope and encouragement, written for divorced women, by divorced women. My goal is to empower and support women going through divorce or those who have recently divorced by creating a collection of inspiring stories of women discussing what they did to get through it.

For this first volume, we're focusing on women, and I'm looking for women to contribute who have gone through divorce at some point, whether it be recent, or years ago.

If you're interested in submitting your story to the first volume, here's what you need to know

1. Want to participate? Email us HERE, and include the word Arise in the subject line.

2. Stories need to be approximately 2,000 words in length or less. We will edit/proof selected stories and email the final/revised submission back to the submitter so she can see the final result before it's printed.

3. Contributors are welcome/encouraged to write anything they like, and to write from the heart, but you must include a message of hope, encouragement, or advice, anything to explain how you were able to move on/the one thing that got you through it.

4. Only your first name will be included, or if you prefer, we can create an alias to protect your anonymity.

5. Deadline for submissions is March 31.

6. 25% of profits from the collection will go to the Live Your Dream foundation, which helps to improve and empower the lives of women and girls through education, grants, and counseling. This program is geared toward single women trying to find their way again after divorce, and abused women and teens who have come from an unhealthy environment.

7. All contributors included in the collection will receive three free print copies of the paperback book once it comes out, and the option of buying as many more as they like at cost (the publisher's discount plus shipping).

Questions? Don't hesitate to ask!

And again, if you'd like to participate, email us HERE.

Featured Author: M.A. Comley

M.A. Comley, a good friend and fellow New York Times bestselling mystery author, is someone who knows the book business inside out. Her newest novel, Wrong Place, has received rave reviews, and its success has her sitting at the #10 spot in police procedurals on Amazon. 


When asked what advice she had for aspiring authors, here's what she had to say:


Thanks for hosting me, Cheryl, always a pleasure dropping by for a cuppa and a chat with a good friend. :) 

I’ve recently released WRONG PLACE the first book in my DI Sally Parker thriller series set in Norfolk in the UK. I’m hoping it will be as successful as my Justice series, fingers crossed anyway. The second book, NO HIDING PLACE is now with the editor and available for pre-order.

Enough about my books and back to the question in hand. What advice would I give to anyone starting out; well, the most important advice would be to ensure you get your work edited by a professional before putting it out there, you’ll seriously regret it if you don’t. I also think people should just knuckle down and write the next book instead of marketing the hell out of ONLY one book. If people enjoy your work they will be impatient to read more, bear that in mind during this process.

I found this out the hard way, but have made up for it since, in the past three years I have written over 20 novels and accrued a ‘few loyal fans’ along the way. We’re nothing without our fans, another fact to remember if you’re self-publishing or indeed a trad published author.

Thanks for inviting me, Cheryl. Good luck to everyone in their quest to become a successful author.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Sometimes even the deepest, darkest secrets find their way to the surface...

Summer 1956

Thirteen-year-old Willie Compton and his younger brother Leonard stumble upon a mine shaft while hiking the hills of Park City, Utah. The shaft is unsealed, abandoned. Leonard gets too close. He slips, then he falls.

Present Day

Up-and-coming filmmaker Melody Sinclair stirs in her chair, nervously awaiting the debut of her film at the Sundance Film Festival. Based on a true story, Bed of Bones tells the tale of murder, shining a light on Park City's tragic past--a past that's about to visit the present. 
...
"An intricately woven mystery that will have you turning pages faster than a force ten gale."
Mel Comley, Author of Justice Series

"Whether or not you're familiar with the works of Cheryl Bradshaw, or with the peppery Sloane, there's no better time than now to take a bite."
Janet Fix, The Word Verve

"The author does a wonderful job of blending the history or Park City into this fast paced, modern day novel that combines the best elements of both the mystery and the thriller genres."
Stephen Campbell, Murders, Mysteries, and Mayhem Radio Show
