Review: Murder, Mayhem, Monsters, and Mistletoe: an anthology
I had never read an anthology before this one. I came into this book wanting to get a feel for different genres; I tend to enjoy a wide-range. I enjoyed the stories and each author stepped to the table giving beautiful works to this project. I could tell each writer loved doing just that writing. I’m lucky to know many of these writers and already knew their personalities with that said I’ve read many books where the authors are almost reflections of themselves in one character or more, but I could see with these specific grouping that they really knew the head of the character or characters they were writing about, well researched and non-associative of the author themselves.
I had stepped myself back from this project, being the cover creator, and was able to come to it as a reader and enjoy it as just that. I fell in love with special stories and have become an advocate for the authors. There hasn’t been a moment that’s passed by that I have not loaned this book out to a friend raving about it and the authors themselves. Seven authors and seven stories for free, I still cannot believe this beautiful project was free!
I look forward to see what’s to come from these authors. I was pleased greatly by the wide-range of stories; I’ve recommended this book many times to friends that are looking for something different or not sure what genre they may like. The only thing I can compare this collection to is a chocolate sampler. You will find a little something you love among the different stories, you may find yourself a new beloved author, and you will want more. I know I did!
