Over The Rainbow Charity Anthology by Friends of Dorothy




We all felt the pain of those terrible events in Orlando, and we felt helpless. A few of us had the idea to bring together as many authors as we could into this Anthology so that the proceeds may benefit those affected by the tragedy, and many people have worked tirelessly to bring this book to fruition. To them we give our heartfelt thanks, because without them, this would not have been possible.

 Margie Lane, Ronnica Bourgeois, Sean Kerr, Patricia Strehle, Brandy Newton, and Raissa Phoenix is a group of people who wanted to help, who wanted to do something that came from their hearts, in order to aid those families and friends affected by the tragedy, and they did everything in their power to create this book, to make a difference in a world crying in pain.

 eXtasy Books stepped forward to champion the Anthology. Tina and Jay have thrown the entire might of eXtasy Books behind the project, and without them, this Anthology may never have seen the light of day, and they have helped with every single aspect of the book, with all their hearts, and all their compassion, driving the project forward to its conclusion.

 So many helped to polish and craft this book, not to mention the incredibly talented Angela Waters who designed the stunning cover and Janet S for the formatting. To the editors: Barb, Bri, Janet, Joselle, Julie, Maga, Priyanka, Tex, Toni, Vicky—thank you.

 This book comes to you with a great deal of love, and a great deal of heart, and maybe just a small message to say that we are all on this planet together, and that together, we are better, and stronger, even when our tears blind us.


Until we meet again on the other side of the rainbow.

We all woke up to the terrible news on Sunday 12th June, 2016, of the horrific attack in Orlando, and not only did it affect the LGBT community, it also outraged the world.

So many of us felt powerless as we watched the horror unfold upon our screens, but Patricia Strehle had a remarkable idea, one that would galvanize an entire community into action. Patricia brought a group of people together with the idea of creating a book, an anthology, and to donate all the money from the sales of that anthology to the families affected by this terrible tragedy.

Over The Rainbow is the result of that noble idea, stories given by so many wonderful authors from all over the world. These stories are meant to inspire, to warm the heart, and to bring a smile or a gentle laugh to help guide us all through the darkness, and to remind us that we all inhabit this world together, that we need to be kind, and that sometimes, we just need to follow that yellow brick road hand in hand.

All sales proceeds from this Anthology will go to the following Charity:
