I’ve had the pleasure to work with group of terrific woman for an anthology inspired by a song. That’s right! A song spoke to us and compelled us to tell the story of a simple statement – SAY SOMETHING. Seven women, seven emotionally charged short stories for your reading pleasure.
Here’s a little something more to tease ya! BLURBS from the stories!

Contemporary to paranormal to historical, enjoy a wide variety of characters and settings, all with the same basic theme: say something.
