A couple of months ago the writers of Word|Link literary agency (including myself) got talking.
Will Creedle suggested we put together a collection of short horror stories and a fire ignited. Before we knew it, like Frankenstein's monster, the idea had life.
Will put together a cover image, carefully collected the stories, and was in the midst of compiling them when a creation of a different sort appeared - his twins were born! The project was picked up by others in the group and the result is a collection of stories that show the talent and diversity of some of the Word|Link authors and, if I do say so myself, is a mighty good read!
The official description calls it:
A collection of Speculative fiction that holds a common link: obscured vision. Whether they be perceptions of reality, apparitions or actual visions, the protagonists in each story either struggle with or purposely hide the truth. It's as if we are viewing it through a windowpane covered in hoarfrost, or a fogged bathroom mirror. We are tantalizingly close to seeing what is there, but by fear, malevolence or misunderstanding it remains just out of focus, a vision forever obscured.
I think it's a great way for us to provide a taster for readers to see what we can do. And it's also a lovely example of what writers can do when they put their minds to it, band together, and support each other. This collection came together in a remarkably short time and is available in kindle ebook format now.
It's currently free and I'd love to hear what people think of it so please grab a copy and let me know, either here or via Amazon reviews what you think. Click here for your copy of Obscured Vision.
