An amazing triumph for Karen AND for authors, readers 11 aprile 2013

Verdict: 5 Stars

How do you rate a book that is filled to overflowing with amazing stories by talented writers, while knowing that it was created to bring inspiration and support to someone facing dark times? Recent troubles have seen authors and publishing industry professionals band together for good like superheroes. The collaboration of experts who donated publishing services to raise money for the families of victims of the Newtown shooting was remarkable, as was the Indies Unite For Joshua IndieGoGo campaign comprised of indie authors who came together to raise funds for a fellow writer's son's medical expenses associated with leukemia. And now a new face joins the ranks of authors experiencing hardship, and once again, the writing and publishing community has answered the call.

Orange Karen: Tribute to a Warrior, is a short story anthology with a little something for everyone. Vampires. Sweaty romance heroes. Old ladies named Miss Della. Even a murdered race car driver. By bringing together thirty-nine authors whose works were accepted from the piles of submissions, the organizers behind Orange Karen have crafted a work of profound love and support, while still a work of incredible literature.

According to a press release announcing the book's launch tomorrow, "ORANGE KAREN: TRIBUTE TO A WARRIOR is a collection of 39 stories that explore the strength and resilience of the human spirit. From the monster in the basement to the teddy bear on a young woman's pillow, each story uses the colour orange as a thematic element, revealing the power of love, friendship, and the will to live. Karen DeLabar is a friend, author, and mother. In June of 2012, she was tricked with Toxic Shock Syndrome. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the anthology will be donated to Karen and her family, to assist with her medical expenses, and ongoing recovery."

While Orange Karen officially goes on sale April 11th, so much work has been done leading up to the book release that the authors themselves appear to be more excited than DeLabar. Some of the contributing authors are professionally published veteran authors, but for some, this anthology marks their publishing debut. All told, the vast differences in the stories and writing styles themselves will mean that it can appeal to a broad audience.

Orange Karen will be available from Amazon in ebook and print editions, and a very special tribute event open to all attendees will take place on Friday, April 12th, at 9pm ET via Spreecast.

Enjoyed! 26 aprile 2013
Di Lexxivette - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I was introduced to this project by someone who is near and dear to me. She's also happens to be one of the published authors in this anthology. And yes, I loved her story. And no, she didn't pay me to say that. So there.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed these little vignettes of orange. Some of the stories spoke louder to me than others, and yes, there were a few that didn't move me at all. But those that didn't move me were still well-written and worthy of publication. I was introduced to genres I have never read, and some I never knew existed. I had my imagination stretched to places it had never been before and I was entertained from beginning to end. I also discovered some new authors, which is always a fabulous thing.

The REASON for the anthology is amazing. In a time when the world feels like it is imploding and bad things are happening all around us, the fact that a group of incredibly talented people gathered together to use their talents and abilities for GOOD, to help someone in need, to tell the world that YES, good people still exist, they are strong, and they are willing to step out there with what they can to make their world a better place.... well then, that's a great reason to buy the book. They are superheros, each and every one of them.

Unbelievable! 13 aprile 2013
Di Eager Reader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

To read the foreword by Jennifer Gracen about what Karen DeLabar and her family have gone through brings tears to the eyes, yet hope to the heart. The words from Karen herself in the front of the book spell out what horror she has been through in the last year, what has been lost, and what she is still working through. Through it all one thing is clear--she's a fighter. She is truly a figure of strength and determination.

As for the collection of stories itself, I'm looking forward to reading all of them. I've read a couple so far (I don't typically review until I'm finished an entire novel or collection) but I've read enough to know quality can be expected throughout. So not only does this collection support a person who is loved by many in person and online, it offers entertainment in exchange.

5 stars!

Simply incredible!!! 22 aprile 2013

I must start by saying that even though I have not read all the stories in this anthology, I must insist that everyone buy a copy. Incredible is how I describe this collection! I wanted to wait until I had read all the stories to write a review, however, I am finding that there are not enough hours in a day, and I just have to share what I have experienced so far. I have laughed, cried, screamed in fear and my heart has been warmed just to name a few. Some of these stories have been taken out of my reading comfort zone, allowing me to think "outside the box" and I am loving every moment of it!!! I am typically a contemporary romance reader, and what I am truly enjoying is exploring all the genres in this book. And, I love that I am getting to read established writers, as well as writers who may have always been writing, but this is their first time being published!
Karen's story is one of incredible strength and this book is a true testament to the love and friendship that surrounds her! The bottom line is that after reading these stories and knowing that you are helping Karen and her family you will be smiling. And, as Karen wrote in her story - "After all, what's the point of living if you can't smile?"
