I hope you are well and having a great weekend so far. I have recently finished reading You’re Not Alone: An Indie Author Anthology by Ian D Moore and friends. It took me a little longer than normal to finish because I just haven’t had the time to sit and read with trying to get everything ready for September 1st.
The anthology sees a variety of authors, from all around the world, coming together under a common goal, to raise money for cancer research. 100% of the royalties will go to the Pamela Winton tribute fund, which is in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and if that isn’t a good enough reason to buy it, then I think you will find the content of this book more than justifies a sale.
Each story in the anthology is based around the theme of relationships, yet each one is so different. As expected in a book which gathers numerous authors, the writing styles, plots, and expressions are completely different. Within the bindings is something for everyone.
I first learnt of this book on Twitter, one of my favoured authors, Sallyann Phillips, had been asked to contribute, so I knew straight away there would be at least one story I would enjoy. Truth be told though, I started at the beginning and each story was as good as the next, I found myself not wanting to put it down, but having to out of necessity.
Through reading the anthology I have come across a number of authors whose work I haven’t read before, and better yet, some whose work I want to read more of, Ian D Moore, Penny Luker, and Erik Lahti, are a few of the people whose other work I will be seeking out. I suppose that’s one of the best things about a multi-author collection, you can easily discover people whose work you haven’t read before.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone, the stories stir within the reader a multitude of emotions and can be anything from amusing to deeply moving. Some are more obvious in their foundation, where as others are more subtle and leave you thinking.
I already have a number of people in mind who will be receiving this book for Christmas, it is such a nice collection that I feel the need to help spread awareness of it.
