About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Grace is about a relationship between two girls and their individual experiences in regards to faith. The title refers to the main character as well to a spiritual impression, identifying prayer as a means which one might triumph over a measure of adversity. Through this portrayal in these difficult times children need to know there is someone they can go to and believe in. I am hoping this is a possible resource for a parent, teacher, or other adult who wishes to utilize a similar idea.
Grace feels somewhat more conscious of her appearance noticing her front tooth is “missing” and recalls hearing something in church: “When you are having a problem and don’t know what to do, God will show you.” In Sunday School, she learns her name means “thoughtfulness towards others, favored, being thankful and given chances.” This made her feel “special” and she makes a “friend” at the church named Peace, who has some of the same likes as she. After, spending and evening together the girls had dinner, Grace’s father tells a “story” about piloting a plane through a awful storm, saying, “It was then that I began to think about God and how the rain and thunder, the lightening represents the test and trials in our lives.”
In the concluding pages of “Grace” the two “best friends” talk “about everything under the sun” before Peace has to return home to her mother. This narrative hopefully integrates an understanding of certain Christian principles while highlighting qualities relating to courage, forgiveness, and loyalty.
Deftly constructed at 46 pages, Grace is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Children's category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Grace meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $12.95.
Additionally, Grace can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
Format: 5.5 x 8.5 Paperback cream

About the Author
Daphane Carnes was was born and raised in a small rural town in Troy, Ohio. She has worked in various fields from medical to the mental health field and is currently, employed through our local shelter (Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County, Inc.) as a Domestic Violence Court-Based Advocate assisting women and children break-free from the cycle of domestic violence.
Daphane has entertained the idea of writing since she was old enough to write. Her mother use to get on her about scribbling on every piece of available paper she could find in the house because she just had to write down what was on her mind. Teachers always enjoyed her stories and she enjoyed creating them. One thing she is thankful for is editors “smile” who let her write.
