Samati Press is a new publishing company, an imprint of SharonSDarrow.com. Samati is a Sanskrit woman's name, meaning Harmony Within. With the name as a guide, the goal is to publish books that will leave the reader, and in turn the world, just a little bit better for having read them. We anticipate publishing works of different genres, but they must all meet the goal of enhancing inner harmony in some way.
All three of Sharon S Darrow's published books will be relaunched by Samati Press. We hope to have that done before the end of 2019, so watch for them.
Umbach Publishing is a sub-imprint of Samati Press. Ken Umbach, the original owner, published several books before he passed away. We are keeping the name to honor Ken and his contribution to the publishing community.

Strive and Protect
Laura was raised to hide who she was. She'd been told repeatedly to never reveal her Cherokee heritage, or the fact that she'd been attacked by her own father. And no one should ever know she had the Second sight, or they might think she was crazy or possessed.
Somehow Laura built a life on her own, married a good man who adored her, and had children, all while managing to keep her secrets. She was determined to raise her children in a home filled with love and support, rather than in an atmosphere of fear and pain like the one she'd known.
Laura's husband shared her ideals, but had demons and fears of his own from his experiences in World War I. Together they worked hard, but their best intentions were repeatedly beaten down by the realities of life during the Great Depression.
This book is a continuation of the author's maternal grandmother's fictionalized story. Many of the places are real, but the people and events portrayed are based on things that took place during the actual time period.
Book Three of the Laura's Dash series
This top picture is Becca, the smallest of the triplets, when they arrived at the ripe old age of 11 days. My husband and I took them in on a temporary basis, just until we could place them in another foster home. Worst case scenario, we'd keep them until they could be adopted out.
As they grew, we were stunned to see how incredibly bonded to one another these three were. Brady, Bonnie, and Becca were always together, cuddling or playing. Never in raising more than 500 kittens had we seen siblings so close. So.....we couldn't separate them.
This book will be contain many full color pictures of the triplets -- who we alternate between calling devils or angels -- interacting with our other animals and getting into mischief. But every single time they get caught doing something awful, they look at us with huge, beautiful yellow eyes. What can you do?
The story will be told by Becca, from the kittens' point of view. We are planning on a publication date sometime late in 2018.
