ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Paula Acton, like me, is an indie author. Personally I think we should support each other more and this is the book I have decided to start with.
Disintegration and other stories is her first story fiction collection to be published. She has been featured in online journals and in the charity anthology Lupus Animus.
BLURB ON BACK
A series of short stories about when the fairy tale ends and everything falls apart. Love, death and revenge all feature in these tales where not everything is as it seems. The phrase till death do us part takes on a different meaning in both Disintegration and Empty, while Table For One and Deuce examine the more humorous side of betrayal.
GOOD BITS ABOUT THE BOOK
My favorite short story in the book was definitely Disintegration. I really did not see that ending coming! I think it would do well as a longer story to, there is quite a few ways it could stretch out.
Table For One made me laugh, if you have ever been cheated on then you have probably imagined doing what happens in that story.
I liked the way all the stories were written, quite casually, which meant you couldn’t see ending’s such as in Disintegration.
NOT SO GOOD BIT’S ABOUT THE BOOK
To be fair I don’t really have anything to say in this bit.
A couple of the stories were possibly a bit short such as Empty.
There were a few typo’s but to be honest I think that is more to do with the system of indie publishing as that has happened to me even though you and many other people edit it a thousand times!
RATING FOR BOOK
Overall I really enjoyed the book and will be buying her next one which, I read, is going to be called Voices Across The Void. This will be out in Autumn.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
