Revealing Wild at Heart Covers

I'm proud to be a member of the Diamond State Romance Authors and very proud of the project they've been working on for the last several months. It's the Wild at Heart Anthologies, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, that will benefit the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Arkansas. A national call for submissions proved that there are many authors who care about animals in need. The authors involved contributed to these books by donating their work toward this cause.

Volume 1 consists of adult stories focused on large-animal rescue and/or the dangers of keeping one as a pet. Volume 2 consists of young adult stories. All proceeds will benefit TCWR, and the books will be sold by TCWR in their bookstore and online.

Special thanks goes to Delilah Devlin and Elle James who have worked many hours on this project. Elle designed the covers. To see a checklist from Elle on how this process of creating a book worked, click here to read her post on the DSRA blog.

The tigers pictured on the covers are residents of the facility. Missy is featured on the cover of Volume 1, and Loretta is the tiger model for Volume 2. Until the release date, go check out the awesome work done by  There are more than tigers at TCWR: bears, bobcats, ligers, lions, and a cougar. We are excited about the opportunity to help these animals in need.
