Dear Friend -

You know the drill -- I show up in your inbox with Virtual Cocktails, offering five ingredients to fill you in on my writing life. But we just chatted last week, so I'm offering up a single shot today -- one quick announcement, and then I'll be out of your hair. Without further ado...
Ingredient One (and Only): Nevertheless, She Persisted Launches!

Today, I'm thrilled to announce the release of the first anthology I've edited, Nevertheless, She Persisted. This is a book of the heart, containing nineteen stories of triumph in the past, present, future, and other worlds.

Here's the back-of-the-book blurb:

“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

Those were the words of Mitch McConnell after he banned Senator Elizabeth Warren from speaking on the floor of the United States Senate. In reaction to the bitter partisanship in Trump’s United States of America, nineteen Book View Café authors celebrate women who persist through tales of triumph—in the past, present, future, and other worlds.

From the halls of Ancient Greece to the vast space between stars, each story illustrates tenacity as women overcome challenges—from society, from beloved family and friends, and even from their own fears. These strong heroines explore the humor and tragedy of persistence in stories that range from romance to historical fiction, from fantasy to science fiction.

From tale to tale, every woman stands firm: a light against the darkness.
