How do you love when you can’t feel anything?

Rose’s identity has always been defined by what her family and Alabama society has imposed on her. When her sister’s death leaves behind two children who need a mother, can Rose forge her own path, or will depression and grief define her forever?

Lillian has been running to find something good. She doesn’t know there’s a name for the pain in her mind and the vices she can’t seem to shake. Can she break the cycle and finally find safety for her family?

Eleanor is not the same person she was. Unhealed wounds have stolen the joy she’d always expected to feel in motherhood. How can she love when she can’t feel anything?

These are the untold stories of mothers across generations. In The Weight of Gold, JS Gariety pulls back the curtain on mental health challenges and stigmas that many mothers have faced. Inspired by real stories. 

Raven in the Mirror

JS Gariety’s thesis for the MFA program will be a full-length novel intended for publishing

What do you do when there’s no right answer?

When her people are threatened with complete destruction, Fey warrior Ri-en must venture into the human realm to investigate a mysterious power that could save her people—at the expense of her new human friends. Ri-en has always sought the approval of her loved ones, but now must decide if she will betray them to save the humans she was taught to hate.

Raven in the mirror is an urban Fey fantasy about duty, love, ancient grudges, and chosen family. A weaving of witchy vibes, secret government operations, battles in faerie, and sprinkles of romance add a complexity that sets RAVEN IN THE MIRROR apart in the genre, but will find a home with readers of Melissa Marr and Hailey Edwards.
