My Titles with Aspen Mountain Press

With a heavy heart, I have decided to remove the buy links for all my titles with Aspen Mountain Press from my website, along with their covers. There is a considerable amount of chaos and legal issues between AMP and it’s staff and authors and a lot of concern over future royalties and rights. Until those issues are settled, I’m considering these works to be “in limbo” and will decide on their fate when the current AMP chaos shakes out.

I am not willing to discuss the details but you can certainly Google the publisher and see the public posts of the various happenings.

This is very sad for me since AMP was my first fiction publisher and I’ve been with them since the beginning.

Giving Thanks Review by Lily

A wonderful reader, Lily, has reviewed Giving Thanks on her blog – I Love Books. She says, in part:

Although this was a short book Ms Anderson managed to pack it full of wonderful characters who dealt with a surprising revelation in differing yet believable ways. I really liked both Troy and Derek and the family member’s that come for dinner were a wonderful addition to the book. The ultimate resolution to the book was, I thought, handled quite well and the epilogue was the icing to the sweet love story. A truly enjoyable book.

You can read the review here and you should look around her site – she has a lot of good reviews!

Giving Thanks got 4.5 Bookmarks from Wild on Books!

Jennifer Ray from Wild on Books has read Giving Thanks and given it 4.5 bookmarks and says (in part):

I have a number of friends who are gay, so reading a story about a man who finally comes out to his family was something that really struck a chord for me. Sure, GIVING THANKS may be a work of fiction, but it had an undeniable chord of truth in it. For many gay men and women, coming out to the people closest to them is unbelievably frightening.


This man is all about doing whatever the man he loves needs. Wow. Would that we all had someone like this in our life, eh?

But that isn’t all the story has to offer. The happy ending Maura Anderson delivers in this brief but emotionally rich story involves more than just the two lovers.

Bravo to Maura Anderson for delivering a story that so poignantly depicts a major event in a gay man’s life in such an honest way, but still finding the happy ever after these two princes deserve together.
