Book Description

TWENTY-EIGHT LEADING VOICES IN FICTION –
INCLUDING ELEVEN NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHORS –
JOIN TOGETHER IN A CELEBRATION OF GREAT STORYTELLING

We love fiction. It’s in our blood and it’s in our souls. Great stories thrill us and inspire us in a way that nothing else can. If you’re like us, then we invite you to revel in this anthology of all-original stories we’ve created for you.

In CAST OF CHARACTERS, you’ll meet a collection of unforgettable personalities. The devoted wife who discovers her husband’s devastating secret. The Black Death survivor who reinvents herself. The woman who finds love in the arms of a dark, dangerous artist. The devoted scientist faced with a daunting ethical dilemma. The woman who hears ghosts. The gorgeous but fated young man. The small-town beauty queen with a world-class mean streak. The inventor who fears his invention. The man seeking a reunion decades later with his first love. The stalker who understands too late who he is stalking. The dreadful athlete who gets one opportunity to win. The man who loves a woman society will not allow him to love. These are only a few of the figures who will leap from the page and take residence in your heart.

In addition, CAST OF CHARACTERS is highlighted by several “events” you won’t want to miss:

• #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander delivers her first short story with a contemporary setting – as does New York Times bestselling author Tanya Anne Crosby.
• New York Times bestselling author Jo Beverley brings back the hero of her novel Forbidden Magic.
• New York Times bestselling author Angie Fox creates a new Biker Witches story.
• New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham writes her first story with her son Jason.
• New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister tells the story of one of her most beloved teen characters as an adult.
• National bestselling author Julie Ortolon tells the beloved Pearl Island story her fans have been clamoring for.
• National bestselling author Diana Peterfreund offers the origin story for one of the most important magical items in her “killer unicorn” series.

A huge volume of twenty-eight stories ranging from romance to suspense to fantasy to comedy to poignant character pieces, CAST OF CHARACTERS is a must-have book for everyone who loves fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Too Much to Choose From April 4, 2012
Format:Paperback
A few years back anthologies became popular in publishing and it's nice to see that they still continue--where else can you find short stories. I love them because it's a great way to find new authors. And there are times when I want a short read in the evening instead of a story that will keep me up all night.

Cast of Characters delivers almost too much...but in a good way.

There are stories from some of my favorite authors: Jo Beverley (Saint Agnes and the Black Sheep), Carole Nelson Douglas (Don't Breathe), Rosemary Edghill (The Woman who Lied to Cats). And there are some new (to me) authors.

"A Dream of Flight" by Victoria Strauss is a haunting beautiful story, and now I want to go buy her other books -- this one's a keeper.

"I Brake for Biker Witches" by Angie Fox is pure fun. (How can you not love a story that starts: "It was a dark and lonely night. No, seriously - it was. You wouldn't believe the pitch black you get in the middle of the desert in California.")

This is a great anthology for browsing through to find something to suit your mood of the moment--and to discover authors you haven't read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, Just wow! April 7, 2012
By Trish
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw the list of authors from this book and was blown away at the talent. Had to have it. I've shamelessly been reading all day instead of finishing my taxes. And the stories are one after the other brilliant. I don't usually read in several of the genres this book covers, but now I'm realizing what I'm missing, and who I'm missing. Seriously incredible. Gotta go, more stories to read.
