Author's Message

The Power of Love -- and Giving

Sometimes buying a book or contributing to the writing of a book can have a profound impact. This month's The Power of Love (Berkley), an anthology created
by author Lori Foster, is just such a book. Proceeds go to the Hamilton County YWCA Battered Women's Shelter in Ohio.

"I wanted to do this anthology and more like it, to give back where I can," says Foster. "I've been truly blessed and I know it. Now I'm in a position
to help others, even if in a small way, and I want to take every opportunity to do so. Thanks to Berkley for giving me control of the anthology, agreeing to publish it and agreeing to do more of them." (Foster adds that at least two more are planned, with differing numbers of authors participating.)

For this edition, Foster reached
out to 11 colleagues. "Every single
author I invited to take part said yes. No hesitation at all," says Foster. "I made it clear up front that they would make nothing off the anthology. All author and agent royalties are being donated. And they were all happy to contribute. The romance writing community is wonderful. I love the authors and readers alike."

Besides Foster, The Power of Love features novellas from Erin McCarthy, Toni Blake, Dianne Castell, Karen Kelley, Rosemary Laurey, Janice Maynard, LuAnn McLane, Lucy Monroe, Patricia Sargeant, Kay Stockham and J.C. Wilder.
