Announcing a New Publication

To all my loyal friends, family and fans 

I've got great news to share with you today. 

I may have previously mentioned that my contest entry to yet another award-winning anthology, was selected as an award winner. Now my story and the marvelous stories by my sister co-winners have been published in a two-volume anthology series entitled TALES OF OUR LIVES (Fork in the Road and Reflection Pond.) My story is "The Gift of Compassion," and is in Tales of Our Lives: A Fork in the Road.

Beginning today, January 8 at 8 am (PST), each volume will be just $.99 for the first 53 hours. (That's a 76% discount.) The prices will go up by $1 each 53 hours until they reach the retail price of $3.99. (Amazon only allows these discounts in the US and the UK unfortunately.
I'd love for you to read the 81 stories in the two volumes—mine and those of the other authors as well and want you to know about the great initial pricing. Below are links to the books. I've listed the US links first (, the UK links second (, and the Canadian links third (

There are two unique aspects of these anthologies. In addition to the providing you with an important narrative of women's life stories, the editor includs the introduction to her new writing methodology (Writing Alchemy). If you're thinking of writing about your life or the lives of others in your family, then you'll want to read that chapter. Second, the editor begins each section with a series of prompts that will help you to think about your own life stories -- stories you may want to share with your family. I use prompts a lot in writing short stroies. These two writing tools help make these volumes even more than a good read. You get 81 powerful stories and 98 prompts. I've spent most of my writing career penning memoir stories and many of you have read my book memoir,. . . And the Whippoorwill Sang. Memoirs can be written by anyone and are a lovely legacy to hand down to future generations as well as remembering the present one.  

And after you've read the stories, I hope you'll feel inspired to write a review on Amazon. I would all appreciate it.

Thanks so much,

Micki Peluso
