BOOK FEATURE: The Resistance, United in Love

This post is a little different. It's not a cover reveal; it's not a release blitz; it's not a review. This is my endorsement of a book I've not even read yet, but rest assured it's now at the top of my TBR pile.  

Why would I endorse a book I haven't read beyond the foreword? Because I believe in it's cause. Like author M. Stratton explains in the foreword, I too have been trying to think of things to do to make a difference.  The election depressed me; the Women's March inspired me. This post is devoted to helping bring attention to this publication.

Romance authors have come together to create this anthology of love to fight hate. That alone is a beautiful thing. I believe in the power of the pen, and I can't think of a nobler cause than making the world a better place for human kind. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). 

You can read the full article from the Huffington Post which is where I discovered it thanks to a share by a Facebook friend. If you believe in this cause, share it too.  Flood your social media news feeds. Make it trending; make it go viral. Make it get more clicks than fake news!

You can purchase either the paperback or the e-book from AMAZON. This post contains no affiliate links; it's merely here as a convenience as always.  I do hope your transaction goes smoother than mine. I spent 33 minutes on the phone with an Amazon rep trying to get my 1-click to work. That's how much I wanted the book and wanted it now, and it's thankfully sitting on my kindle waiting for me! 

My thanks goes out to all the authors who contributed-- for not sitting down or shutting up, but instead standing up for what is right. 📣 

We the people 
Will not be silenced 
Our voices are important. 

We the people 
Will not be pushed aside 
We will be seen 
Our numbers are more than you know. 

We the people 
Will make a difference 
We will hold the government accountable 
Our empathy is not a weakness. 

In these turbulent times we the people will stand together in the face of hate knowing we are all equal, and every life matters. 
We the people are The Resistance, United in Love
