Our Launch Party for the Release of Our Anthology DECEIT

Our DECEIT Anthology Released in November, 2023

Deceit anthology

Our DECEIT Story Collection

Published November 7, 2023

We have completed the Seasons Series with the release of our last book, Summer—When Doors Open. Our current book release is similar to our very first anthology, Tolerance. Our new collection is called Deceit. It contains ten stories for you to enjoy and was released in November.

Deceit… Our lives are full of deceit, from the little white lie a person might tell to a lie of omission to the world by its leaders spouting untruths. Deceit can come packaged as protection yet is actually deception meant to harm another. Countries involved in covert to overt manipulation attempts to change their status or political influence are seen every day, revealed by the press, bloggers, social influencers. The thing is, can you trust them ? It’s the little things each of us do that prove out as either intentional, or not–how you can tell the difference?

Let the Transcendent Authors fifth book
unravel deceit in its many forms.

This team of authors takes immense pleasure in thanking and acknowledging Soleah Sadge for her knack for organizing the manuscript. Thank you for the support from 100 Books. And our gratitude extends to all the ARC team readers.

Most of all to our readers, may you enjoy this third story collection named Spring—The Unexpected. Some will scare you; some will bring a smile to your lips.

Tolerance A Collection of Short Stories
Dedication

In memory of 2020, the most challenging year of modern history, this treasure tomb from the imagination of ten authors is dedicated to humanity around the globe.

Note

EARLY FALL 2020 TEN authors met at an online meeting site for the first time over a glass of wine. The idea of an anthology was born. Together we compiled this anthology to resemble an old 45 RPM vinyl record, with an A and B side. The “A” side stories are all based on the theme “Tolerance.” Whereas side “B” are tales straight from the hearts of the authors. Both sides, like those records of old, are a banquet of entertainment for the reader. So sit back with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, put your feet up, get comfy, and prepare to enjoy the feast.
