I'm so happy for my fellow Astraea Press authors on their big day today:))) Having your book released is the most amazing feeling. My head (and heart) is still in the clouds. Congrats, Kay, on the release of Heartsight.

Kay Springsteen is a truly classy lady and she is turning her release into something amazing for a bunch of deserving people.  Read the message below from Kay to see how and then we would appreciate it so much if you would help her spread the word. I'm also posting the book blurb and buy link. You can read more at Kay's blog by following the link on the right side of my page or at http://kayspringsteen.wordpress.com/.  Thank you and we appreciate it!!


On a secluded beach in North Carolina, three lonely people find hope in each other.
Trish Evers is an artist and single mother, who has inherited her grandmother's Bed and Breakfast in a North Carolina coastal town. Though she must sell the house, she decides to bring her daughter to the beach for one last summer vacation in her childhood town.
Bella is a six-year-old girl who has Down syndrome. Rejected by her father, Trish, is the only parent she's ever known. Bella likes to explore the beach and has a tendency to wander off. One day, Bella goes exploring on her own, and Trish finds her in the company of an intriguing stranger.
Dan Conway is a U.S. Marine, who had been born into a family of Marines. Now blind as a result of combat injuries and unable to "suit up," he feels he no longer has a purpose in life. He's come home to the beach, where he spends his days in solitude. Dan must learn to believe in himself and to love life again, which he begins to do through his interactions with Bella and Trish. When a hurricane strikes, and Bella wanders off again, her only hope for rescue is Dan.
Working within the confines of his blindness, he must overcome his fear of failure and recall his training in order to search for the little girl and bring her to safety.
Kay's message:

Many thanks to the folks at Astraea Press for their support of this donation. And thank you in advance to my readers for your donation to this great cause.




  1. I will tweet and post it on my FB page. I think this is great...being a military spouse, this means a lot. Thank you for your generosity.

  2. Thank you so much, Greta! Kay really appreciates it as do all the soldiers.

  3. Thank you for spreading the word, Kim and Greta!
