My dear friend Annika Perry has recently published her first book, „The Storyteller Speaks – Powerful Stories to Win Your Heart“.
Like many of her followers, I couldn´t wait to finally burrow my nose deep into it and absorb her wonderfully written stories like a dried up sponge.
Nevertheless, I was determined to make this book last as long as I could, and promised myself to read only one of the 21 short stories a day.
And now I have to confess, with only the slightest bit of embarrassment at my own inability to stay true to my promise, that I have utterly and completely failed at this. 🙂
So instead of reading one story a day, I ended up reading two or three, sometimes four stories every second or third day. Always torn between the desire to simply keep on reading and the determination to prolong the pleasure of reading her book for as long as possible.
Because reading this book is like eating chocolate – total bliss!
So do yourself a favor – visit her blog if you haven´t already, and get acquainted with this truly marvelous storyteller whose stories will catch your attention and heart in a mere second, mesmerizing you with every word, every sentence and making you wish for more More MORE!
And this is where you will be lucky, because Annika is currently busy with editing her first novel „Island Girl“ for which I can hardly wait to get my hands on!!!
And if my words have so far failed to convince you, here´s the cover and the blurb of „The Storyteller Speaks“:
About the Book
It only takes one event to change a life. What is that action, decision, occurrence? Whose life is affected? Changed forever?
In this eclectic mix of 21 short stories, flash fiction and poetry the pendulum swings between first love and murder, from soul-destroying grief to reconciliation. The tales veer from the sweet satisfaction of revenge to new beginnings, from heart-breaking miscarriages of justice to heart-warming Christmas misadventure.
One common thread binds them all; the belief that there is no such thing as an ordinary life; they’re all extraordinary.
Open your hearts and minds as The Storyteller Speaks.
