I was contacted by a film/television writer and novelist to reveal the cover for Empower: Fight Like a Girl for Lupus Awareness Month, and one of the wonderful things about this book is that all the proceeds will be donated to the non-profit Lupus Foundation of America! Now for the cover and synopsis:
Even non-girls will feel empowered by these stories about ordinary, flawed characters finding their own strengths. Highly entertaining and original. ~ Lee Goldberg, New York Times bestselling author of The Chase and King City whose mother lost her hearing to lupus.

I just have to say, the second I saw the cover I thought that the Rosie the Riveter pose was just perfect for this book. I really love how this book is for such a good cause, and the writers contributing to this have written for so many awesome T.V. shows, so I’m really excited to see what stories they’ve written for this book!
