Just Bought

Recently bought this anthology and it's great. There really is something for everyone here and the stories are all well constructed. The Tears and Laughter website states ' The idea for this book came from the successful 'A Story A Fortnight' writing group which brought the writers involved together in a project that has inspired and supported them in their short story writing.'

What a great idea. I particularly enjoyed  'We'll Meet Again,' by Kathleen McGurl. It's a short ghost story with reference back to WW2 - very poignant. In fact I loved it but then it's just my 'cup of tea,' but please excuse the cliche. 'Going Backwards,' by Deborah Carr is another short but well crafted piece that quickly wracks up the tension, culminating in an ending that hints of the possibility of romance and new beginnings.

There are twenty six stories contributed by well known and published writers and if you enjoy the short story genre, it's well worth a read. Give yourself a treat and grab your copy today.
