Dreams & Desires Launch!

It's February 1, 2007...and that means today is the launch date for the Freya's Bower charity anthology, Dreams & Desires!

Here's the official information, from the Freya's Bower page:

Dreams and Desires: A Collection of Romance and Erotic Tales

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.

This is a terrific opportunity to not only read a terrific collection of short stories--all of which have to do with pursuing one's greatest desire--but also to help victims of domestic violence pursue their own dreams.


I'm thrilled to be part of this marvelous effort, and to work with a group of such talented authors.

That was one of the busiest chats I've ever attended. My eyes were crossing while trying to absorb all those messages, lol.
