Begin Again: A Collection of Short Stories about Hope, Healing, and Love….Release Blitz with Review!

Begin Again

A collection of short stories about Hope, Healing, and Love, benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and NAMI.

Release Date: January 11, 2018



There are times when the Earth stops moving and the weight of its gravity pulls you down, deeper than you ever thought possible. You tumble farther than you ever imagined falling…

And when the sun goes black and your heart feels empty, starting over seems like an impossible feat…

You’re not alone.

Twenty-Two Authors have joined together in this collection of short stories about fresh starts and second chances to help illustrate that even when life takes away everything, and when hope is a horizon you think you’ll never catch, it is possible to Begin Again.

*All Proceeds will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and NAMI*

What an amazing group of writers, and what a wonderful, hopeful collection of stories. There are several authors that are my favorites, and I found some new ones as well!!!

I haven’t had the opportunity to read each and every story in the collection, but each is filled with hope in times of darkness. Anyone who has experienced times of pain and despair that you thought you would never escape from or who knows someone who has, this book lets you know you aren’t alone. There is a way out of the pain and darkness, and joy and lightness aren’t out of your reach. It’s there within your reach!

I was especially moved by the Foreword by Rebecca Yarros. Don’t we wish we all had those words when we were sixteen. I was actually given an ARC to read, but I was so moved emotionally that I also bought this book. It is an important book, and ALL PROCEEDS go to NAMI and The American Association for Suicide Prevention. It was a no-brainer for me…I get to read works by my favorite writers, and my money goes to a wonderful, lifesaving cause!
