Hi Ronnie,

I was a winner of the Peter K Hixson Wild Card award back in 2013. One of the pieces I submitted to you was an excerpt from my debut novel, which was finally traditionally published in August by a stellar indie: Twisted Road Publications. Echoed in My Bones is the story of biracial twin sisters who are separated at birth and raised in neighboring NJ towns, but worlds apart. It was inspired by my work as an inner-city psychotherapist. Getting several stories published through Writer’s Relief gave me the confidence to soldier on through the difficult process of getting a novel traditionally published in the current market. I thank you for that.

All My Best,

Lisa
