This book holds something for everyone -- hope, inspiration, family, love, humor, etc. The styles of writing is just as diversified as the genres. There are also different levels of experience in the writing, which also adds to the uniqueness you'll find in this Anthology.
Overall, this is an awesome book. The diversity, alone, makes it worth reading. RAVE SOUP FOR THE WRITER'S SOUL is a book that I will turn to again and again. Definitely 5 stars.
This delightful anthology has so many wonderful facets which thrill me every time I revisit a chosen story. For easy reference, readers who acquire the eBook can click on a favourite category – and they have so much to choose from. Without falling into the trap of writing an essay instead of a review, I’ll try my best to highlight some of them, but really, I highly recommend reading everything.
POETRY: Nonnie Jules – ‘Before They Came’ touched my heart as a mother and I shed a few tears. Traci Sanders – ‘A Mother’s Hands’ resonated with me, remembering my own mother’s hands with so much fondness and love. All the poems, although diverse were wonderful to read out load. I read some to my husband and afterwards it gave us an opportunity for quiet reflection.
CHILDHOOD MEMORIES had me in stitches. All the writers deserve the greatest of praise, giving such fond insights into the magical carefree years of children, reviving the ‘inner-child’ in me.
CONFESSIONS OF A WRITER: I was on the same page with Nonnie Jules – “When you know what you know, what you know you know” – writers need to appreciate their own work’s worth; Tim Hemlin muses on the positives of loving poetry, referring to memorable quotes from poets such as John Adams – “You’re never alone with a poet in your pocket” – and really that “poets remind us the depth of their emotions.” And Traci Sanders sums up why writers do what they do – “My words have power … to teach … to bring joy, fear, sadness, peace and comfort to others. The power to heal.” Breath-taking stuff!
ENCOURAGEMENT: Harmony Kent penned a collection of eight poignant short stories – ‘After You’ – about the loss of a loved one and the various stages of grief. This is an outstanding and uplifting collection.
FAITH AND HOPE: Four short stories remind the reader to appreciate every moment of life, to have faith, pray often and never neglect the wonderful gift of having family – truly inspiring!
FAMILY and FRIENDS really follows on perfectly. Judith Barrow’s ‘Stitched Up’ and ‘Cloud Movers’ by Rea Nolan Martin looks closer at siblings, who despite their arguments have the same filial fondness, stretching from one generation to the next.
INSPIRATION, LESSONS LEARNED, LOVE AND RELATIONSHIPS: I enjoyed reading and rereading many of these stories. I cried when I finished ‘The Thief’ by Ava Louise (wonderful for anyone who has ever loved an animal) and Beam Week’s ‘Sweetie Girl’ – tragic, but familiar to all who have seen loved ones suffer with Alzheimer’s disease. A must read.
SCI-FI and FANTASY: Although I’m not familiar with the genre, I enjoyed ‘World of Kaynar!’ by A.G. Moye taking us to a fantastical past, and John Fioravanti’s trilogy, ‘Musings’ – a glimpse of the future when a few remaining humans escape Earth’s annihilation by a super-virus (I liked this take on Earth’s destruction) and the immediate conflict which arises at their new home between the ‘Churchers’ and the ‘Scum’… This will thrill Sci-Fi fans.
WHY I WRITE: Five brilliant authors truly provide ‘soup’ for the writer’s soul in providing five servings of the best meal a writer – new or experienced – needs to reinforce their passion for writing. Thank you to each and every contributor. This is a must read book, worthy of space on my bookshelf.
This collection of short fiction and poetry comes from Rave Reviews Book Club and showcases the talents of club members, many of whom are quickly gaining popularity among fans of indie-published works. Genres vary, offering something for every taste and preference. The talent levels shine.
Readers are treated to samples from some of the better indie authors in the market today. This mini library serves as an introduction to those writers who have also penned novels and poetry collections. If you're a fan of indie and you're looking for a new favorite, this is one of those books that should be on your shelf.
It is so enchanting because it is so diverse, and takes you from one captivating experience to another. Only at the Rave Review Book Club can one find such diversity. You get to know the contributing writers a litter better through the insights into the lives which they painted. There were not much abstraction in the stories. Authors were looking at, and showing us glimpses of their lives through their various eyes that it became a kaleidoscopic of colorful words painted in poetry, and prose.
I duff my hat to you wonderful Rave Review Book Club authors. And I look forward to the next edition of these collections. This is a really good read.
