A whole lot of fun with some scares, suspense, heartbreak and reflection thrown in. I found each story in this collection unique and engaging. While some of the areas/genres weren't up my alley, I still appreciated the characters in each (there are 16 stories... you're bound to fall in love with one of them, if not more).

Overall, well done and great read.

Bonus: I like knowing that all the proceeds from the book will go to lupus research & the Lupus Foundation of America.

Family Guy is on our TV several nights a week, and during opening credits "Cherry Chevapravatdumrong" always catches my eye. I decided to Google her, saw that she's authored some books and contributed to this one. I noticed that proceeds of this book go to the Lupus Foundation. Because I have Lupus I was compelled to buy it.

I'm really wondering if any of these stories were written specifically for this book. Most all of them seem such odd choices. I expected motivational and uplifting tales inv

I'm still not too keen on rating and reviewing short story collections. Specially the ones from multiple authors. So you probably won't get much out of me.
I was afraid I won't like Empower. I've had it on my kindle for so long and I put it down after about 15% and then nothing. I've tried to read it several times for read-a-thons and such but I never really did. But it's E-Read-A-Thon now and I finally got to it. I after reading it all I can say I liked the whole thing.
Sure, the quality of the s

There are some really fun, fantastic stories in here from some very talented ladies of the tv & comic writing world. I picked it up because I'm a huge fan of Maurissa Tancharoen & I really admire her courage in dealing with chronic illness, Lupus, & thought it a really worthy cause to support & a great way of doing it. Also because I'm a huge geek & knew many of the names from their work in the Whedonverse on such shows/comics as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Dr Horrible & ...more

Great anthology for a fantastic cause

If you want to get your bad ass chick on, look no further than this awesome anthology of stories for women, by women. Proceeds go to help The Lupus Foundation of America Inc.

While not every story was five star worthy, the incredible talent gathered here for a good cause made for a pleasant read. I would typically read one story between books to make it last.

Totally worth every penny!

Bought this because it supports a good cause, the Lupus Foundation, but found the writing to be pretty uneven. Some pieces are well done, but with others, you can really tell they are written by television writers. They seem much better suited to the screen than the page. One or two may actually have been attempts at satire, because the writing was so full of cliches and over-the-top.

Quite disappointing. The stories where okay, I guess, but apart from a few of them, they weren't written in a way I find interesting or enjoyable.
