As authors, I understand that there are a lot of rules regarding our work, with specific concerns to publishing, marketing, and even the topics we write about.  I also know that we are not supposed to have favorites because of how important it is for each project to hold a special place in our hearts.  This is true for me because all of work comes from the heart.  But if I had to choose, which is something I have been asking myself lately, in regards to tours and promotions, most important are the ones that may not always connect or fit in with popular genres, but each one offers an opportunity to showcase an otherwise overlooked  and  unrepresented side of human existence.   In the words of some of my reviews, someone will always say that my work is very thought-provoking as it opens your eyes to social issues that most do not know about and maybe do not understand.  As a writer, it is very important to me to write about these social issues, and if someone learns something for my work, then I have done what I set out to do.  With that point in mind, I wanted to share my personal favorites, (and best) with you.  These are the stories from my heart…
