This is going to be a 2-parter. In keeping with my focus on short stories and novellas, I’m going to feature two of Amy’s new releases. The first is Reformation. If you notice there’s no hyperlink over the title. Why? Because Reformation is an exclusive thing. It’s free. All you have to do is sign up for Amy’s newsletter at amybrockmcnew.com.

Your reaction could save a life, and a precious one’s innocence. #EndHumanTrafficking #SaySomething #DoSomething #NeverStopFighting

During a quick stop at a local Books a Million with my two boys, I was on the hunt for author Mary Weber’s new YA sci-fi story, Reclaiming Shiloh Snow–a story birthed from her heart for young people caught in human trafficking.

I had no idea how God would yank my eyes open about that very thing, minutes later.

Older son Cole asked to look at self-defense and martial arts books. Because he’s 5’10 and nearly fourteen, I didn’t hesitate letting him cross the main aisle. Chase wanted to check out Legos and Lego books. Since I’d only be a minute or two, I gave him permission to look at Legos while I quickly checked for the book.

The YA section is three aisles from the middle grade…
