Video Trailer: Love Hurts

Love Hurts 120x177Love does not always result in ‘happily ever after’. It is a powerful emotion that, in the hands of a damaged soul, can be all-consuming, dangerous and even lethal.

In this collection of short stories — some dark, some light-hearted — written by award-winning author Carol E. Wyer, we discover what happens when love takes over.

Be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions.

Love Hurts, the short story collection by Carol E. Wyer, is available on, Smashwords, and Amazon UK, and other online retailers.

Don’t forget, you can cast your vote for trailer of the month on May 31, 2014 at 5 p.m. Pacific time.

Featured Selections from Dream of Things

There is nothing like a mother’s love. And there is nothing that compares to the strength, determination, and tenacity of a mother trying to protect her children.

This Mother’s Day, Dream of Things presents three powerful and thought-provoking memoirs from three extraordinary women who exemplify what it means to be a mother. Each in her own way shares an inspiring true story of love, loss, strength, and survival. Their stories are very different, but the women are united in their determination to do the very best they can for their children. Along the way, they also serve as great examples of women who understand that you can’t live vicariously through your children – it’s also important to find and create meaning in your own life.

Dream of Things is a small press with a reputation for publishing quality memoirs. “Our goal is to provide readers with distinctive voices and meaningful books,” says founder Mike O’Mary. “These memoirs meet both criteria. They are meaningful because these books can change lives. At the same time, each author has a unique voice – the ‘fairy dust’ of great writing.” Dream of Things memoirs are available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and elsewhere.
