An Author Full of Love

Recently, I had the pleasure to follow Lacresha Hayes on her blog tour. It was amazing, and everyone knows I'm going to say that because she's my friend. Nevermind that she has a great message to share.

However, during this trip, I had the joy of hearing about and reading more about another author who is just as wonderful and just as anointed. Her name is Joyce Anthony, author of the book, Storm.

Joyce Anthony, http://joyceanthony.tripod.com, is a woman of strength, character and giving. She works tirelessly for the literary field, to preserve its credibility. She does some of the most indepth author interviews around. She's a woman of many talents and great passions. My hat goes off to her. We salute you, Joyce Anthony. Keep up the good work.

I've known Joyce Anthony for a number of years now. We met at a writer's group online. I even made the two-hour trip from my home to hers so I could meet her. She is in person the same terrific individual I know online. She's the real deal. So it's wonderful for me to see that others appreciate her, too. ~ Cathy B.

I appreciate your words about Joyce Anthony! I had the privilege of reviewing STORM, and it moved me as few other books have.

Best wishes,

I think this is a wonderful and well-deserved tribute to a dynamite girl - everything you said is true and more! Beautiful young woman full of love, humanity and spirit.
Bless your heart and hers.

I can only second what Cathy B. says. Joyce is a truly special lady, giving so much of her time and her energy - and although I only know her from the online literary communities, I feel I am a better person from having gotten to know her,

Well, I had to add my two cents. Joyce makes people feel good about themselves. She has a natural love for people. We became friends when I was really low. She always showed me love and concern. She'd write out of the blue, and I didn't know her that well then. She'd always say that she was there, a listening ear if I needed one. Well, I'm so happy God brought her into my life. She's added a new dimension to it and I hope that we are friends until we are well into our eighties. I love you, Joyce. Thanks, Erica.

I couldn't agree more with your comments on Joyce. She is always there to share with her fellow STAR authors and others a well.

Best,
