We not only had the honour of editing Ms. Valle's 3rd book, Acquittal, but also did the photography and cover!
Acquittal is a new adult, paranormal mystery set on the beautiful campus of UC Santa Cruz. It is the first book in a series of five. It is available on Amazon for Kindle and in paperback.

Serenity (right), Akane (left) and Arleigh (center) were great sports even in the biting frosty air! Everyone had a wonderful time and many great shots were taken before Serenity decided on the one seen on the cover.
Serenity's most recent book, Twenty-three Years [Micaela's Story] takes the reader on a journey through the life of a woman who was bullied as a child, abused at the hands of boyfriends and husbands, until finally finding freedom. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and she really wanted to get it released during the month. We were able to accomodate her wishes and it released October 25, 2016! She will be donating 20% of profits to various local and national services that assist individuals and families who are in abuse situations.
Years of a Dream, In Silence is Serenity Valle's latest release. It combines Twenty-three Years: Micaela's Story with two other short stories never before published. Dream Sweetly, Girl was written for a suicide prevention awareness anthology, and The Dark Silence in the Moon was written for a mental health awareness anthology. Unfortunately, both anthologies fell through. Not one to scrap a good story, Serenity put them out as a three story anthology. Serenity will be donating 30% of sales! 10% to domestic violence awareness, 10% to suicide prevention, and 10% to mental health awareness. We applaud her creativity, and her generosity to give to three extremely important causes.
