“’10 Steps to a Whole New You’ by Tonya Liburd
“This story left me breathless. Broken into ten parts, it progresses through the arrival of a suspicious new neighbour to an intense rebirth. It’s as sharp as a wolf’s bite and as unforgiving as death. I don’t even know how else to explain it other than to say it must be read.”
The indiegogo campaign is still up as of this posting. We’re trying to reach a stretch goal or two…
When you LITERALLY get paid for being a nice and decent human being…
I think whoever said that nice people end up last should probably reconsider.

Quick Sip Reviews has an AWESOME review of my story “Bootleg Jesus”.
Among other awesome words:
“It’s this clue from a young age that some rules can not only be broken, but must be in order to reach for justice. Because Jesus was a rebel, was a revolutionary…”
“…this is a story that nicely explores the need to escape those kind of abusive situations by any means, prioritizing first the victim and not pausing to consider the feelings of those who let the abuse happen in the first place. It’s often difficult and complex, but it’s also very much worth spending some time with. A great read!
