The Stars Will Shine Again

Helping Our Heroes One Page at A Time

The Stars Will Shine Again is a collection of short stories from your favourite authors who have come together to deliver you a Christmas read with a twist.

With true war tales that will break your heart, gritty crimes that will shake you to your core, magic and mystery, and heart-warming tales of love lost and found, this anthology has something for everyone. And, with every penny made being sent to support our troops you’re helping our heroes, one page at a time.

From authors such as Malcolm Hollingdrake, Tony Forder, Val Portelli, and Andrew Barrett, and several debut authors, including Sarah Hardy and Yvonne Bastian, you are in for one heck of a ride.

Emma Mitchell has done it again!

We now have a second anthology, The Stars Will Shine Again, which is a further collection of short stories compiled by Emma Mitchell. As with the first anthology, When Stars Will Shine, every penny made from the sales of both the digital and paperback copies will be donated to the charity Help for Heroes.

This book is a delightful collection of short stories. I do enjoy an anthology which I can pick up when I need a few minutes of reading time and don’t want to get caught up in the ‘one more page’ loop. Short stories like these are special as they cover so many topics and as multi-genre you don’t know what you are going to get on the next page. These stories were also a welcome read on nights were I fall into bed too tired to pick up my book but able to read a short story before switching off my light!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys short stories that can take you off, here there and everywhere, to other worlds with each new beginning.

As the blurb tells us, The Stars Will Shine Again is a multi-genre collection of short stories compiled to raise money for our armed forces and every penny made from the sales of both the digital and paperback copies will be donated to the charity Help for Heroes. Covid has made fundraising a difficult job for everyone, so it’s an honour to able to do something like this and I’m thankful to everyone involved. With huge thanks going once again to Amanda Horan for her support and fabulous cover design. You can find her at Let’s Get Booked.

I’ve picked the best of the submissions to bring you a thrilling book which is perfect for dipping into at lunchtime or snuggling up with on a cold winter’s night. I have been completely blown away by the support from the writing and blogging community, especially the authors who submitted stories and bloggers who have been so generous with their time to help advertise and spread the word.

There isn’t a person in the country who hasn’t benefited from the sacrifices our troops, past and present, have made for us and they all deserve our thanks.

It has been an honour working on these stories, and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have.

  1. I didn’t think I was a fan of short story anthologies until I read Sinopticon by Xueting Christine Ni. This one sounds like a real winter warmer all round. I’ll look it up.
