Book Bundle: Gatherings, What if?, The Power of Love,

 


A collection of character based stories with a strong element of stream-of-consciousness style in some of them.   

This book contains about twenty-four unthemed short stories. The narratives are picturesque, evocative, and entertaining. They will take the readers on a journey laced with slightly amoral leanings to the serious and in-depth observations of the human condition. With both tragic and comic endings, vices and virtues, entwined into the hearts of the stories, are all about ordinary people with mundane aspirations, broken dreams, and success.

 

Gatherings is a single author collection from Bridge House Publishing. Mehreen Ahmed has a well-established voice and is an experienced literary writer. 

“What if?” An unanswered question. The unexplained, a mystery, a road not taken.

This is a collection of dark fiction injected here and there with glimmers of humour.

The author takes us on a surreal and ghostly journey from Latin America’s Day of the Dead, through the coastal towns of Lancashire, a pig farm in Denmark, a high-rise in Mallorca, a haunted vicarage at Christmas and a town centre coffee bar. The voices we hear are variously plaintive, nostalgic, and occasionally vindictive or vengeful: the testimonies and fears of the living and the dead.

Anne Wilson, writes about places she knows, imbuing the natural world and the everyday with disturbing fantasy and the supernatural.

Book bundle: Last Chance Salon, Invisible on Thursdays, The Power of Love

 


When Rafe Bunce takes over a run-down hair salon in Penge, he hopes to make a success of his life at last. Not content with improving his own fortunes, he is soon meddling in his customers’ lives, too – with bittersweet results.

The stories in Last Chance Salon touch on the hopes and dreams, big and small, which we all carry inside us.

 


A memoir of a creative woman’s travels in Greece and into her family’s history.

Peppy Barlow is a playwright and screen writer who lives her life looking for meaning and material in all her experiences. In this book she and her friend Persephone/Lucia explore childhood memories – both good and bad – and travel with their children to Crete where ancient myths emerge to haunt them.

A very personal account of a friendship which takes Peppy back to England and ends with Persephone returning to the Underworld. Authentic, brave, honest, funny and touching – the author’s voice shines out from these pages.

Invisible on Thursdays is a Bridge House Publication highlighting Feisty Women. Author Peppy Barlow guides us through her turbulent and rich life adventures. Truly a life well-lived.

 

The stories in THE POWER OF LOVE are quite simply about LOVE of all kinds. If you like romance, then these short stories are written just for you as well. There is plenty of that! The huge clock on Waterloo station acts as catalyst for that. But the collection also shows us other sorts of love: family ties, enduring love, old love, forbidden love, mended love, children’s love for their parents, parents’ love for their children, a love for old buildings, and love between animals and humans.
