There are three authors involved in the Merry Sisters of Fate site. A site where three authors challenged themselves and each other to write a small piece of fiction each week. This is but a small look into the process and the end results.

This was a really interesting book. I would definitely recommend it to aspiring authors. There are not only some of these ladies lovely tales, but lots of notes and scribbles that talk about the writing process. That's what really makes this book unique is that added touch beyond just the stories.

These stories are also fantastic though. I have only read Brenna's books before, but I found that I loved every single story and now am thinking I really need to pick up something by the other two. Each story fits the title, they are curious tales. A step out of the ordinary.

I am going to have to buy this book to keep around and go back to. The stories and notes and doodles were just really fab. If you have a chance to check this out...do.

First Line:

Hey guys, what so you guys think of doing a group blog where we each try and do a piece of flash fiction or a mini scene totally unrelated to anything we're doing?"

Favorite Line:
"My heart is spinning fast , and I am feverish with a burning need to destroy."

You can check out their website, Merry Sisters of Fate, here. There are tons of other great (sometimes creepy) stories there too.


  1. "There are not only some of these ladies lovely tales, but lots of notes and scribbles that talk about the writing process." - oh, how cool! I'm definitely more curious about this one now.

    Great review :)

  2. This sounds fantastic! And I have to agree, love the cover!
