Heartbeats is a unique collaboration between author M. Kate Allen, Solarwyrm Press, and Fey Publishing. But we couldn't have done this without an incredible artist named Luke Spooner who donated his time to create an amazing cover. All the parties involved are working on this anthology for free. Jax Goss, co-owner of Solarwyrm, is doing the editing, and Fey Publishing is formatting the book for print and publishing it. The intro and the idea are all the work of M. Kate Allen. All proceeds raised from the sale of this book will be donated to notforsalecampaign.com.
The writers featured in this anthology have also donated their work to the anthology. Jax Goss has said, "The stories in the book are stories of oppression and liberation, of empowerment and the stripping away of power, of enslavement and escape. Many are hard to read, many will break your hearts or make them soar, all are united in the idea that the use and abuse of humans must stop."
Everything has come together really quickly for this, but it's because the three of us were passionate about the cause and wanted to do something to help end the enslavement of men, women, and children around the world.
And of course, a book wouldn't be complete without a cover. Thanks again to Luke Spooner for the fantastic work he's done in such a short amount of time.
