Offers on our Chrstmas anthologies

  What does it mean to be gifted? Is this to do with a present being wrapped up and handed to another?   Does one person sacrifice something to help someone else? Or is to do with having a certain talent? Is that gift always welcome? Does the protagonist make the most of what has been gifted to them?   All of those scenarios exist in these stories and there are other interpretations as well of the theme “gifted”. Gifted is Bridge House’s 2023 anthology which includes stories by both some of the gifted writers we already know well and by some new faces.    See in our online shop     Life goes on. There is renewal. Nature endures. This is a collection of challenging and thought-provoking stories. All stories have an everlasting message and these provide ones that will astound and delight you. We looked for: story, good writing, interpretation of theme and professionalism. All of the stories submitted had those elements. Here we offer a variation to cater to our readers’ eclectic taste

They have their fair share of the type of problems we humans have – pesky monthly cycles, others out to get them, a lack of what they need and a surfeit of what they don’t want. They’re not immune to recessions either. (Young adult) View in our online book shop You'll find all sorts of animals
