Cry of the Nightbird: Writers Against Domestic Violence was named a finalist in two national independent book competitions in 2015 – the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the National Indie Excellence Awards.
In this heartbreaking and sobering but ultimately life-affirming* anthology, thirty-eight writers speak out in more than fifty prose and poetry pieces of a hidden tragedy: violence in homes, living in fear, and forced silence. Authors from every walk of life and every aspect of this difficult issue raise their voices as one to end this silence, to bring freedom and release for themselves and others. These words will inform and inspire readers: give them eyes to see, a way to express, and motivation to act. Proceeds from sales of Cry of the Nightbird: Writers Against Domestic Violence will be donated to YWCA Sonoma County to benefit their Domestic Violence Programs.
