Silent Nights hide deadly secrets, sometimes it’s more than the halls that get decked and Christmas isn’t always merry. For some, Christmas is a scary and lonely time, full of regret, sadness and pain. Memories rush to the surface that should stay buried, circumstances change and revenge sounds like the best present of all. The tales in this Circle 8 Writers anthology shine a light on the darker side of Christmas. They show us that sometimes family ties get tangled, that no matter how old the grudge, punishment still feels good, and that there are creatures out and about during the holidays who wish anything but peace and joy.

If: A Short Story Anthology --
"As If You Cared" Short story: If Robert hadn’t been so alienated by his wife’s manic depression, maybe the cure wouldn’t have proved so deadly.

Mothers and Other Stranger --
Family is supposed to be a safe haven, an island holding back a sea of pain, regret and troubles. Yet, sometimes, the sharks circling you are the very family that’s supposed to protect you. A mother, father, sister—or even grandma---with sinister intentions can rip your heart apart, turning home into a nightmare. Be careful where your eyes roam in Mothers & Other Strangers. The stories and poems inside may resonate in your own heart and make you reevaluate just what family really means. *Some stories contain mature content.*

Roses and Thorns--
Love is kind. Love is true. It can also be destructive, painful and bitter. Love makes life easier, helps ease burdens and fills the heart with warmth. It can also make life too hard to bear any longer, lead to rash actions and tear families apart. People search for love expecting an endless dream, but, too often, find love can be a nightmare. The stories offered here in this 4th Circle 8 Writers Group anthology explore love at its best and its worst. Each story expresses how strong the force of love is and how it shapes fates. Love can smell sweet or make you bleed, depending on whether you are handed Roses or Thorns. ***Some stories contain adult material.***
The stories in Scared Sleepy are not the fairy tales and nursery rhymes your mama told you when you were little. The characters may seem familiar, but the antics they get up to will make your blood run cold. Revenge, murder, adultery, fights and fun abound in these tales. Old friends become new menaces, beloved characters show an underbelly you’ve never seen before and hardly anybody lives happily ever after.
The seven flash fiction stories in “Killer Heat” are full of intrigue, madness and flames. Some of the characters find that the only way out of a bad situation is to burn the whole mess to the ground. Others are dealing with corrupt politics and bad situations that leave them cold, even though they are in hot water. No matter the circumstances, all of the characters learn one thing: heat kills.
This is DIVA's third anthology.

Not all ghost stories are scary. In these three short tales from Angel Sharum, the ghosts right some wrongs, help others and take care of their own affairs.
*Going Home: Addie has suffered long enough, but when it’s her time to go, she can’t bear to leave Rupert in a state of despair.
*The Dead’s Rights: Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you can’t make sure you’re buried properly. Well, as long as you’re quick about it that is.
*Revisiting: Sometimes, you have to die to set things right.
The Masks in the Mirror
Constance learned in childhood that sometimes you survive with a little help from your friends, even those who don’t really exist. The problem is, how do you end those friendships when their help turns unwelcome? Constance soon learns your best friends can be your worst enemies.
While writing a book on the life and crimes of a death row inmate, Greg expects to learn where all the proverbial bodies are buried. After all, a dying man has no need for secrets. What Greg doesn’t know, is that some bonds last a lifetime, and some secrets endure beyond the grave.
MASKS are always fun, don't ya think?
In a dramatic departure from her trademark tales of fun and horror, Angel Sharum offers within Innocence End two short stories of the real world many children have experienced but most adults would rather ignore:1) The Beat Goes On portrays the brutality inflicted frequently on a daughter blamed for the death of her mother.
2) Protecting Molly takes the reader into the world of a girl whose father treats her not as a daughter as much as his substitute wife. Caution: Sharum holds nothing back in her depiction of the things one daughter will do to protect the youngest daughter from the brutality and depravity of their alcoholic father.
Though neither short story is for the squeamish, both are a herald of the return of the understated Southern narrative voice of such classic authors as Harper Lee and Truman Capote to American literature.
Crime Gone Wrong--
This is a book of four short stories written by the members of DIVA (Diverse Independent Verrückt Authors), a group of women authors from different backgrounds who have come together to write short story anthologies.

All I Want For Christmas--
In this twisted Christmas tale, sometimes getting what you want really is like pulling teeth.
Fortune shines on some, illuminating life and improving circumstances while leaving others to flounder in the dark. Destiny has a wicked sense of humor, laughing at the twists and turns that lead to the final destination and Luck is a fickle mistress, tempting with success, only to throw obstacles onto the path. Journey through the eleven unique tales of circumstance this anthology offers, where the outcome is uncertain, and Fate decides the "Consequences."
Consequences: Crime and Punishment--
Life can change in an instant. Passions overtake common sense and emotions run amuck, leading to explosive situations that blow the lives of those involved apart. Sometimes, the pieces can be picked up, but can they ever really be put back together properly? Or is something still missing? Is that integral piece of humanity no longer there, or if it still exists, do other, more powerful forces, squelch its' voice? Immediate satisfaction feeds the thirst for vengeance, but parches the soul, leaving a dead shell the person is forever trying to fill. Sometimes, when this happens, the lines between Crime and Punishment are blurred.
Damaged people seek peace for themselves by damaging others, never considering the cycle will continue and that their actions will have consequences far reaching and devastating. Are victims who turn into tormentors no longer victims? Do the Crimes committed against them not deserve Punishment? The stories in this anthology delve into the psyche of hate and pain that leads to destruction for so many, and show what happens when those who only seek retribution, where justice is an afterthought at best, deal with Crime and Punishment.
