A Congressional Congratulation for Susan Miura

On Christmas Eve, Susan Miura received a letter from Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi congratulating her on her Midwest Book Review rating and Royal Dragonfly award.  It’s impressive that the Congressman took time out of his day to thank a hardworking author! We couldn’t be happier for Susan (or prouder of her accomplishment!)

Looking Forward to the New Year?

A new year can be a new beginning, and it’s usually welcome, especially when the previous year has been tough, be it for financial, emotional, or health reasons. But sometimes, it’s easy to get into the mindset that it’s just another year, that it won’t be any different than the previous one.

new-years-eve-4664930_1920We want to encourage you to find something positive to focus on as 2020 starts. It doesn’t have to be something big. Maybe you’re looking forward to starting your garden, meeting up with friends you haven’t seen in a while, or even going to see a new doctor who just might be able to help you solve the mystery of your health issues. If you don’t think you have anything good around the corner, challenge yourself to change your mindset. Even in the midst of darkness, we can find a light.

All of us here at Vinspire Publishing have been through our fair share of challenges so we understand the struggles. But we also understand that we have to choose to be happy. We hope you do that this year and every year.

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!

We hope you, your family, and friends have a Christmas filled with love, laughter, and hope!

Merry Christmas

Leanne Strong hates June eighth even though it’s supposed to a day for celebration.  Fifteen years ago on that date, baby Leanne was purported to be miraculously healed of a spinal cord defect after her mother prayed to a religious mystic who was later elevated to sainthood. Since Leanne’s unexplained cure, thousands of people gather in her small town every year to celebrate her miracle—a miracle she doesn’t remember but still accepts as real—most of the time.

When teen pitching phenom Braeden Dalisay moves into the house across the street from Leanne, he harbors a chip on his shoulder even larger than his athletic talent. Forced to spend the summer in the same law office, he and Leanne carry on a working relationship that vacillates between stormy and silent. After Leanne finds out that Braeden’s sister, Emeline, recently passed away, the reason for his behavior becomes clear. Emeline Dalisay was a girl who didn’t get a miracle.

Time softens Braeden’s anger, and he and Leanne eventually draw closer. But when he and his family are hit with another traumatic event, he pulls away, the unfairness of life a deep wound. Leanne wants to help Braeden and his family heal as much as she wants a relationship with him. More than that, she wants a miracle for Braeden.
