Our Most Recent Anthology Released on March 31, 2022

Spring-The-Unexpected

Acknowledgements

The development of this new anthology required a group of ten dedicated authors to commit to this process. It takes many hours to edit, rewrite and design the final product you now hold in your hand. All the authors spent countless hours reading each other’s work and encouraging one another to get this third edition of an Anthology.

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. Others will make you sit in awe of the author’s imagination. You might find love that is never ending. Our fondest wish for you is that you have a pleasurable reading experience with the stories we’ve written, especially for you.

Enjoy.

Announcing the Release of Spring—The Unexpected

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.
