Inspired by Actual Events, New Historical Adventure Novel Celebrates the Role of Women in the Battle for America’s Independence

 In 1778, war was men’s business. That didn’t stop countless brave women from getting involved in the fight for liberty. In Tracy Lawson’s thrilling historical adventure, “Answering Liberty’s Call: Anna Stone’s Daring Ride to Valley Forge,” we meet mother and wife Anna, who undertakes a death-defying 200-mile journey to save her husband and brothers from an uncertain fate at Valley Forge. Based on the tale of the author’s sixth great-grandmother’s journey to the army camp, which was passed down through the descendants of Anna’s eleven children, Lawson conducted extensive research to flesh out the novel with authentic genealogical and historical details.

We rarely see the American Revolution from a woman’s perspective. Anna Stone’s story is representative of the efforts of thousands of women who advanced the cause of liberty as couriers, saboteurs, spies, and relief workers. Anna leaves her children and the safety of home to enter the conflict zone alone, where she witnesses and confronts many of the problems Americans faced during the war. While racing to bring lifesaving supplies to her loved ones, she learns of a plot to overthrow General Washington. She agrees to carry a message of warning to the Commander, further adding to the suspense as she attempts to outrun one of his enemies, who is determined to steal the letter.

Available in hardcover, paperback, and eBook, the second edition of “Answering Liberty’s Call: Anna Stone’s Daring Ride to Valley Forge,” was released on March 29, 2022, and is distributed by Bublish, Inc. It is the first volume in Lawson’s Ladies of the Revolution series.

Inspired by His Daughter, Author Grant Handgis Releases “Teeny Tiny Tammy,” a Book that Empowers Girls and Women Alike

New York, NY – WEBWIRE

Teeny Tiny Tammy is a little girl in a fictional forest whose mother was carried away when she was a child, leaving her to choose her own road to womanhood with the assistance of three female figures from the “Contrariest Forest.” Tammy is only six inches tall, but she learns the attributes that lead to womanhood with the help of the cloister of women she encounters along the way. The “Contrariest Forest” is a place where a girl’s search for femininity begins, problems are conquered, and dreams are achieved. Tammy’s cloister of ladies, gnomes, fairies, and a problematic Troll are among the cast of characters. A story for young girls about legendary woodlands and learning about the characteristics of femininity, with the solution coming from inside.

The book was written for Grant’s little daughter at the time, who embodied the attributes of the book’s main character. For obvious reasons, the author holds this story in high regard. When the story was first started, it was completely made up. After thirty years, it has evolved into something more, including life lessons and knowledge gained over the years, transforming the fictitious tale into a story of an old discipline being rediscovered. The author’s goal was to set out the journey that every young girl takes in her search for significance in the age-old desire to become a lady. It’s a story about self-sufficiency.

Explore the tiny world of a tiny girl with a giant heart and determination. Get your copy.
