Since 2003, Scribes Valley Publishing has discovered many new writers and re-discovered many established writers through our annual short story writing contest. We enjoy presenting their hard work to the world through our short story anthologies that carry readers away to the much sought-after land of Elsewhere. Along the way, we've also produced a few specialty books and a critically acclaimed novel. All these are just a part of the fantastic journey that reminds us every day to "Live to Imagine!"

Fearless Heart by Gail Cauble Gurley FEARLESS HEART by Gail Cauble Gurley

Stranded in New York City after the stock market crash of 1929, Robert Blair must walk to the docks daily seeking work in order to feed Ellen, his wife, and their four-year-old son Stephen; plus pay the $8.00 monthly apartment rent in the slum where they live.

Shortly after a simple but very joyous Christmas, the dock work shuts down. Robert, shaken by this threat to the foundation of his very being, becomes desperate to find work. When approached by a stranger in a black limousine who begins to direct and influence his family's lives, Robert faces a torrent of shocking new choices. Will they be opportunities or burdens? Will he be able to marry his life to this new direction, or will he turn down a life so different from any he has ever experienced?

Will faith and courage be enough to help the Blair family survive?
bestselling and record-holding author from New Zealand.
