Hello, readers! I am so very excited to be announcing the official publication of the anthology Wishful Thinking from Fireside Press, the first in the Wishes series of books.

In Wishful Thinking, you will find my horror/sci-fi short story, “Kill ‘Em With Kindness”, about a young man who wishes people would just be kind. He gets his wish, but it all quickly goes horribly wrong…

I was inspired to write this story because of two things: one, the state of this absolutely crazy world we live in and two, a quote I heard a few years ago, about wanting kindness to be a normal thing instead of a rarity. This is my favorite story I’ve written to date and I am so glad that Fireside Press picked it up!

Below you will find the Amazon link (the book is only $0.99!). Please purchase it and leave a review, helping the indie writer community that came together to make this book possible. Most of all, ENJOY!

I grew up surrounded by books, and to know that my story is out there, in a book, for people to enjoy at the leisure, it amazes me. I am so grateful and thankful to God and to everyone who believed in me and encouraged me through this journey. My mom, for one, has always been just the best. She;s the reason I keep pushing onwards. But I have so many friends who keep me going by being supportive. You all know who you are.

Enjoy everyone! xoxo LL

My contribution is the emotional poem “Aftermath”, which I wrote during one of the most difficult times in my life.

Proceeds from sales will go to helping indie writers in need.

I thank Ms. Hall for approaching me to do this, and I am so excited to have my work published amidst so many great writers’!
