The greatest truths are often revealed in fiction, as exemplified by this stunning anthology of stories that reveal the human condition in bracingly truthful ways. The eternal complexities of sibling relationships are revealed in four-time #1 bestselling author Steven Manchester’s “Lost.” The hope and betrayal that so often underlies love declare themselves in Marcia Gloster’s “Losing Will.” The reality behind a con man’s illusions emerge in Craig Ham’s contest-winning “Tonic and Spirits.” These are three of the dozen truths that will rise from these pages.

Side by side with the work of national bestselling novelists like Mary Marcus and Earl Javorsky, A DOZEN TRUTHS features the three winners of the 2016 AuthorsFirst Short Story Contest, providing a bold mix of experienced storytelling and fresh new voices.

As entertaining as it is engaging, A DOZEN TRUTHS promises twelve dramatic revelations – and as many powerful reading experiences.

A Dozen Truths: 12 Works of Fiction
by Steven Manchester and MORE

A Dozen Truths: 12 Works of FictionReading this amazing anthology of tales was kind of like being the first person at the dessert buffet and no one is watching as I fill my plate with at least one of everything! Along with my tried and true favorite authors, I have had a chance to sample what I am sure are going to be MORE favorite authors, best part, no calories, no guilt, just per reading entertainment and pleasure.

The resounding theme is loss of one form or another and how these losses are dealt with or expressed. From the endearing to the intriguing and beyond, each tale is a powerful statement to the talents of these authors. Small slices of their work are on display with just enough to inhale the essence of each style, as well as the depth of the worlds they have invited us into.

Of course, I have a favorite, I won’t even lie about that, but I would hate to detract from anyone’s efforts, so I am completely comfortable with saying, this is five-star reading in a kaleidoscope of writing talents, moods and atmospheres! Time to try out the main courses these authors have to offer.

I received this copy from Steven Manchester in exchange for my honest review.
