I'm pleased to announce Boji Stones, a story about a modern day woman with a centuries-old secret, is released today. Here is an excerpt, hope you enjoy:His trembling fingers rested on the keyboard as he leaned toward the monitor, an uncontrollable twitch running through his misshapen body as he devoured the article with the greedy need of a child offered chocolate.'Legend has it that out of all the mortals on earth five women found favor with the gods—Sophia whose face was pitted and ravaged by pox,Zoe a young queen whose village was razed and plundered and she herself taken as slave,Pelagia who had the body of a woman and the mind of a child,Olympia a poor widow with children to feed,andHelen, who’d lost four children to the plague and begged the gods to spare her remaining child.Moved, the gods created five special amulets.To Sophia they gave an amulet forged with beauty and creativity.To Zoe an amulet forged with power.To Pelagia an amulet forged with knowledge.To Olympia an amulet forged with wealth.And for Helen they forged a copper amulet with a beautiful amethyst at its center. Two plain stones the size of small coins flanked the amethyst. The female stone smooth, the male stone’s texture rough. Then they fused the amulet with healing.Or so legend has it…'

    I highly recommend the Crystal and now the Boji Stones, the first two books in a series full of suspense, adventure, and emotion, all written in a fast and humorous pace. Good job Sandra

    Oh, another nice cover Sandra. I haven't seen this one before. I love the cover of The Crystal as well.

    I have had the privilege of reading Sandra's works. She is a wonderful storyteller. Her writing is imaginative and full of emotion. Highly recommended.
