Welcome Guest Blogger Marci Baun!!!
Today we welcome the Editor in Chief of Wild Child Publishing and Freyas Bower Ms. Marci Baun.
It’s a great pleasure to have her here and to share with you information on theoir new anthology and how it will benefit battered woman.
PLease help us welcome Marci and here’s a little about her and the DREAMS AND DESIRES ANTHOLOGY
The editor of Freya’s Bower since its inception in 2006, Ms. Baun has a wide variety of interests. Among them are history, music, opera, theater, swimming, cycling, nature, travel, and writing. She has written and performed one person shows about historical women in schools, universities and festivals across the state of California and sang with the Coasters and the Drifters, Freddie Hart, as well as on the operatic stage. A few years past, she composed music for a twelve minute musical. When time permits, she hopes to return to the theater. In her other life, she is a stay-at-home mom who chases around a very busy toddler.
When asked why she began publishing, she replied, “I love the written word. There is nothing as powerful or as beautiful. Once you fall in love, there’s no going back.”
True love, freedom, money, danger… Dreams and desires of the ordinary woman, or man. From a battered woman rediscovering freedom to an actress finding more on a set than expected to a treasure seeker stumbling upon something else to a taxi driver in search of danger, this collection of nineteen stories celebrates the attainment of all one can dream or desire. Which one do you secretly yearn for?
By purchasing this collection, you can help turn someone’s nightmare into the pursuit of dreams. Every year, four million women are assaulted by their partners. At Freya’s Bower, we want to do our part to bring this statistic down to zero. To this end, all net proceeds from every Dreams and Desire anthology purchased will go to a battered woman’s shelter. Through education and support, we can make a difference.

Being part of the anthology has been such a joy for me. Not only does it give a touchpoint for speaking about hard issues, but it has helped me get to know some amazing women, who happen to be in the anthology as well.
I agree. Both volumes are fabulous!
I volunteered, honest 😉
I agree with Rhonda! Marci does a great job of enlisting wonderful writers (well, that sounds cocky, but you know what I mean!) for these anthologies!
I know I’m biased, because I wrote one of the stories in here, but seriously, there are some AMAZING short works in this anthology. Not only is it good for charity, you’re also getting an amazing read. I couldn’t believe the caliber of writing in here–we’re so lucky to have such talented, generous authors!
