“Vegan Pagan’s Prayer” in a Lovely New Anthology

For those of you who have been longtime fans of my “Vegan Pagan’s Prayer,”  I’m pleased to announce it appears in this wonderful new anthology:


Even in My Dreams:  A Collection of Vegan Poems

‘Even in my dreams – a collection of vegan poems’ is one of the first anthologies of its kind.

With entries from over 30 vegan poets from around the world, this book allows you to explore the full spectrum of emotions experienced as a vegan. There are poems that speak with joy, sadness, despair, horror, frustration, confusion, triumph, hope, gratitude, humour and sarcasm.

“A beautiful volume of always touching, sometimes funny, and invariably accessible poems about why animals matter and why vegans stand up for them.” – Victoria Moran, author, podcaster, and Academy director: Main Street Vegan.

All profits from this book go towards the Barefoot Vegan Farm & Animal Sanctuary – BarefootVeganFarm.com

I’ve enjoyed every issue of Barefoot Vegan that I’ve read, and I highly recommend it – it’s got a more spiritual, not strictly food-focused focus than most other veg mags.  (Not that there’s anything wrong with food! Just sometimes I want to hear more about the mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of living an ahimsa-loving life.)

Profits from the anthology as well as magazine sales directly benefit the Barefoot Vegan Sanctuary, a recently-established home for animals located in France.  They’re just getting off the ground and every book helps more rescued critters find a peaceful, safe home!

If you’re a fan of mine who’s also veg-conscious, I’ve also written for another anthology, Call to Compassion: Religious Perspectives on Animal Advocacy.  Be sure and check it out too.

Happy downloading and ordering, and I hope you enjoy the product of two years of labor pains, head bashing, and soooooo much coffee.

Coming March 1: Shadowstorm, a Novel of the Shadow World


In the sixth novel of Dianne Sylvan’s Shadow World series, vampire Queen Miranda Grey’s immortal family is on the verge of breaking. She and her husband David now rule most of the United States since their mysterious new enemy, the Order of the Morningstar, began assassinating the leaders of the vampire world. Her best friend Deven is a broken ghost of who he once was after a loss that should have taken his life. And Nico, the creature who left his entire world behind to help them, is losing his immense arsenal of magical power – and his will to live – inch by inch.

But now, in the midst of a national tour to support her recent album, the situation goes from bad to worse: Miranda’s darkest secret is about to cause her two worlds to collide. When Morningstar moves more of its pieces into place and nearly destroys one of her own, the only choice Miranda and her family have is a gambit so audacious it could change the entire game…but will the fallout be a blessing, a curse, or something made of both?

On sale March 1 at Amazon.com (trade paperback and Kindle formats) and BarnesandNoble.com (Nook format).  Links will be provided as soon as available.  

(Due to publishing format, pre-sales will not be conducted.)
