Touch of Kindness

Young Adult Romantic Fantasy

by R. Loomis

About TOUCH OF KINDNESS

Dori Livingston doesn’t want to be anything special. She’s fine staying in the background, helping her friends, and supporting her single mom any way she can while living in her small Texas town. That all changes when she meets a strange girl at school who is running away. In true Dori fashion, she welcomes the girl into her home without hesitation. Little does Dori know that in helping this girl she’ll spark a chain of events that will change her life forever.


After showing Dori her ability to influence people with a single touch, Dori is left with more questions than answers. The next day, Dori is captured and taken to the Otherworld, a place full of magic and fantastical creatures. She learns the girl she helped was betrothed to a prince, and now Dori must fill the void, marrying His Highness in the girl's stead. Dori’s mission becomes clear: get back home no matter what. However, getting back to the Mortalworld will be harder than she could have ever expected.

What Touch of Kindness is all about

"While Touch of Kindness started as a literal dream, it turned into something much more… the book has the overarching theme of kindness. It may seem simple, but in every part of life, being kind is essential. Each person can bring a little joy to this world to those around them just by showing some kindness. 


Dori, my main character, has what the Otherworld describes as a magical gift, and while parts of her gift are based in magic, the core of it is something anyone can do. It is my hope that this story and Dori's perspective will influence the reader to want to help others, even if it isn't easy. Because if every person showed a bit of kindness, this world would be a much better place for everyone."
