The Second Womb is a nest, the sacred place that we all must have to complete our becoming. Whether it is the warmth and safety required after the first birth, or it is the space needed for withdrawal and reimagining, the second womb is the needed surrogate-a compassionate experience that works outside of Time as it helps in healing.
This is a book of poetry that has seven chapters. They deal with the feminine, our sacred spaces, the isolation of thought, large and small truths, life and its rhythms, and many other ruminations.

Enter for your chance to win a SIGNED copy of THE SECRET WIFE OF AARON BURR!
Inspired by a woman and events forgotten by history, bestselling author Susan Holloway Scott weaves together carefully researched fact and fiction to tell the story of Mary Emmons, and the place she held in the life—and the heart—of the notorious Aaron Burr.
He was a hero of the Revolution, a brilliant politician, lawyer, and very nearly president; a skillful survivor in a raw new country filled with constantly shifting loyalties. Today Aaron Burr is remembered more for the fatal duel that killed rival Alexander Hamilton. But long before that single shot destroyed Burr’s political career, there were other dark whispers about him: that he was untrustworthy, a libertine, a man unafraid of claiming whatever he believed should be his.
Sold into slavery as a child in India, Mary Emmons was brought to an America torn by war. Toughened by the experiences of her young life, Mary is intelligent, resourceful, and strong. She quickly gains the trust of her new mistress, Theodosia Prevost, and becomes indispensable in a complicated household filled with intrigue—especially when the now-widowed Theodosia marries Colonel Aaron Burr. As Theodosia sickens with the fatal disease that will finally kill her, Mary and Burr are drawn together into a private world of power and passion, and a secret, tangled union that would have shocked the nation...

A harrowing historical novel of the extraordinary acts of ordinary people in Nazi-occupied Italy.
Italy, 1943. Luca Benedetto has joined the partisans in their fight against the German troops ravaging the shores of his town on Lake Como. While risking his life to free his country, Luca is also struggling to protect Sarah, his Jewish lover who’s hiding in a mountain cabin. As the violent Nazi occupation intensifies, Luca and Sarah fear for more than their own lives.
In the heart of their village, their mothers have also found themselves vulnerable to the encroaching Nazis. But Luca’s mother, undeterred, is devising her own revenge on the occupiers. With Mussolini deposed and Allied armies fighting their way up the peninsula, the fate of Italy hangs in the balance, and the people of Lake Como must decide how much they’re prepared to sacrifice for family, friends, and the country they love.
The most trying of times will create the most unexpected heroes and incredible acts of courage in this stirring narrative as seen through the eyes of those devastated by war-torn Italy.
I have a few extra printed copies of Scourge of the Silver Wings, a true underdog fantasy story, lying around. Do you want one? You can read it at night under your covers, with a flashlight!
A small and twitchy stranger arrives to a naval trading port. He keeps to himself at first, but can (when pushed) spin an impressive and likely untrue tale of fantastic and bizarre naval voyages. Telling this tale in a bar corner should make for a reasonable break, and a break is what he now wants.
But the town is a stage for an ideological war about to turn hot, and both sides would much like Peal to join their ranks and help them achieve total dominion over the region. They've seen through Peal's innocent disguise, just enough to realize he is more than he seems and would make for an asset... yet not nearly enough to understand that this might be a very, very bad idea.
When his hand is forced, Peal will make the survivors regret their impertinence - but he may also accumulate a few fresh regrets of his own. Far more is at stake here than material wealth or glory.
Participate in the giveaway to see how he fares - you've nothing at all to lose!
