“Short story is capable of almost anything - a couple of thousand words to take you to an imaginary world, connect you with a character and leaving you with a smile or a broken heart. Nine Facets is a collection of 9 such stories ranging from the essential to the unexpected, the traditional to the surreal.
However, there is a twist - these 9 short stories have been written by many writers coming together with one common goal – to weave words, unify verbs with words and realize their common dream of becoming an author. They all have come together online to write, collaborate, read, analyse and edit each other words to bring you these amazing collection of stories.
This book offers an eclectic mix of differing tales, to take you on a journey away from everyday life. The book explores the fragile ties between human relationships often through people facing turning points in their lives.
A young man trying to find love in New York, a heartbroken man fighting his inner demons and drug abuse, a betrayal leads to finding true love for young princess, an employee of the month receives an award he was not expecting, a wife makes a decision that will forever change her life and a young girl becomes aware that the young man who has come to see her may not be as friendly as he seems. These stories are covered in 9 chapters:
- When I Met You In New York
- Lost Stars
- The Princess and her Warriors
- A Gift for Davy
- Employee of the Month
- A Face on the Wall
- Midsummer Mayhem
- Maya’s Trial
- Mr Chatterjee’s Epiphany
The book has been a form of experiment, of possibility. Not that crowdsourced storytelling is anything new – legends, fairy tales have always been created and modified by the crowds, #Author has only provided an innovative platform to like-minded writers to unravel their story which was waiting to come to life.
We hope you enjoy each and every word of this magical book that has been weaved by people who have never met each other, however, have come together to bring one beautiful story each from their life to share with you.”
