WHEN YOU PASS THROUGH WATERS

Read Excerpt

WHEN YOU PASS THROUGH WATERS
BUY THIS BOOK

A new book featuring the work of 18 beloved and bestselling authors releases today with all proceeds benefitting water-disaster relief. In response to the “thousand year flood” of 2015 in South Carolina, Karen White, Lisa Wingate, SC Poet Laureate Marjory Wentworth, and 15 other authors graciously contributed a water-themed story, essay, novel excerpt, or poem to this heart-warming and thought-provoking anthology. Like a winding river, their words meander through memories and nostalgia or swell in a fit of faith, fear, or questioning. Some offer lessons learned by the water or new beginnings because of it. There are even works of fiction—it often speaks the clearest truth. This is a timeless book for water-lovers and storm survivors.  For more information, visit www.waterbooks.net.

Contributing Authors include: Lisa Wingate, Karen White, Bret Lott, Cassandra King, Marjory Wentworth, Jolina Petersheim, Denise Hildreth Jones, Signe Pike, Michael Bassett, Fred Bassett, Eva Marie Everson, Batt Humphreys, Nicole Seitz, Julie Cantrell, Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, Dianne Miley, Dorothy McFalls, and Sarah Loudin Thomas.

Behind the Book
October 2015 brought a super blood moon, extreme high tides, record amounts of rain, and a thousand year flood to much of South Carolina. Author Nicole Seitz’ home was spared in Mount Pleasant, but her brother-in-law, just 40 minutes away in Summerville, was not as fortunate. The creek overflowed and entered his home, filling it with two feet of water. Nearly everything was lost, and the family of four was displaced. They moved in with parents while the damage could be assessed and the home rebuilt. The widespread flood damage became personal to Seitz, and she wanted a way to help. She called on author friends—novelists, poets, journalists—and they responded in record time. One month later, When You Pass Through Waters was created. The anthology is inspiring and thought-provoking as the 18 beloved and bestselling authors share their water-related memories, fears, and wisdom. The cover artwork was done by Nicole Seitz, who is also an artist, illustrator, and art teacher. All proceeds support water-disaster relief efforts.
