Wild At Heart Update

The Wild at Heart Anthologies, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, that will benefit the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is now available on Amazon!

I'm very proud of this project that was put together by my Romance Writers of America Diamond State Romance Authors chapter. Everyone donated their time and talents to see that it came available to you as soon as possible. Print versions will soon follow.

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.

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. Go check out the awesome work 
Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge has done. 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.

I'm so excited that we can raise some funds for these beautiful creatures. Every time I look at the photos from Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, it takes my breath away.

Great post, Charlene! Lots of exciting things happening with the DSRA this year - including you!

Thanks for dropping by, ladies.

I agree, Brinda, I've always loved these animals and have been in awe of the big cats since I discovered they came out bigger than my kitty I'd carry around by the tail. Lol

You're right, Margaret, there are exciting things going on! :) It's great to be a part of it.
