Redeeming Grace: 5 Year Re-ReleaseIn only 7 days, our first ever WWII themed project will be re-released for its 5 year anniversary. At the time, our firm had been holding a contest for a holiday themed novel or novella that new authors wished to see published. We got many participants from all over the country (and a few abroad), all of which were very well written and interesting stories. However, there was one that stood out to us-- one we never thought would have. We weren't big on war novels, in fact, our firm had never before asked to see them (we were more of the memoir publishers, or the soft romantic fiction press); but, still, this one stood out to us.
Unlike the pure happy holiday pieces we had received, ones filled with all romance and happy holiday spirit, Redeeming Grace had darker tones beneath it. We were at first ready to put it to the side when we read the synopsis, but I spoke up and we managed to give it a try. And are we glad that we did.

Publishing News and SybilI know it's a tad early to be updating, but I have some rather exciting news that I'd like to share with everyone. Most of it is publishing news, so bear with me!

First off, before all the publishing news from all over the place, we got a new addition to our suite today! I went into China Town and bought a pet goldfish I named Sybil. It's a little treat to myself since I needed some sort of animal here to make me feel more at home, and since they sold them cheap and I found the shop, I figured why not? Sybil is happily living in our living room right now, but she may end up coming into my room once I get my desk moved around (I have a lot of stuff on it). I'm just thinking that the living room is warmer than my room (we tend to get chilly temperatures since we have a large picture window in my room that takes up a whole wall), so Sybil may end up staying there.

Spectre paced the beach once more when the final rays of sun sunk below the horizon. Another day had gone by, adding to the thousands of others that slipped through his fingers, reminding him of her. It was all his fault, and he knew it. If only he had listened to her. If only he had stayed. If only
For centuries he had waited on the shores of purgatory, longing for the white light which never came. Yet, he was promised it; when he could fulfil his tasks of redemption. As the days passed, he began to realize that no matter how many he was able to complete, the light never came. The
002 -- LoveThere was something about the sea which made it impossible for him to look away. Centuries of memories still lingered upon the waves, his heart stranded in a land far beyond them. It was always at sunset when he could trudge the beaches, departing from the rest of his crew. For he knew that with the dimming light, they would soon be off on their own voyages through dreamland, and would have no place in tracking him down in question. And thus, the sea became his nightly companion.002 -- Love1 year ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The last rays of light swept across the crests, igniting them in the same fiery hues the sky above wielded. There were times he believed that the
