Release Day Blitz – AmWriting: A Collection of Letters

#AmWriting Ebook CoverKnowing what you know now of writing, publishing, and putting your art out into the world, if you could go back to the day you sat down to start typing in your very first manuscript, what words would you offer to yourself? Words of encouragement? Words of advice? Caution against certain pitfalls? Would you change anything about how you got to where you are today?

The publishing community is so much bigger than it was before the self-publishing boom and it continues to grow exponentially every day. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a handbook or support group. #AmWriting is a collection of letters written by authors from all different corners of the publishing community. The letters provide words of encouragement or advice to those just starting out or those who have become discouraged in their art. At Pure Textuality PR, we believe in supporting each other as a community, and we felt this project would be a good way to bring writers together and maybe give some new artists just the right nudge to keep going.

100% of the net proceeds of #AmWriting will be donated to The Wayne Foundation, a charity dedicated to offering aid and services to young women victimized by illegal sexual exploitation and the sexual trafficking of minors. For more information about The Wayne Foundation, you can visit them on the web at http://waynefdn.org.

Synopsis:
When a drunk truck driver claimed Lydia’s
husband and son, her world shattered. The small town that once embraced her was
now her personal hell. She made the decision to leave her hometown of Nazareth,
Pennsylvania and move to Eastport, Maine, to start over in the last happy place
she ever knew.
When the sea tried to claim Ryan, he was left a
broken man. Starting over in a wheelchair was the last thing he expected to do.
Ryan was born to be a lobster fisherman, not a buoy. When Lydia became his home
care nurse, he never expected her to be the light at the end of his tunnel.
Will their broken hearts survive a second
chance or will they remain locked in their cages?
Lobsters mate for life. Lobster love is
forever.
