To make up for my boo boo yesterday, I hurriedly read this anthology of short stories today. The publisher is billing it as New Adult. Technically, I guess it does fit into the definition. Most of the protagonists are in that age group. But if these stories are an accurate reflection of what it means to be a New Adult, I’m glad I’m an Old Adult.

Don’t get me wrong. All of the stories are well-written; however, the plots are dark.The characters are vividly drawn but nobody I’d want to know.

That said, readers who gobble up gritty reality will certainly find it here.

Perception is everything, they say. It’s true.

Perception release

My life is just a teensy bit out of control right now. I completely missed posting a promised review of Elephantine’s newest release, Perception. This is a New Adult anthology featuring works by Linda Davis, Scott Davis, Nealy Gihan, and Mary Laufer. Mea culpa, but I promise I’ll review this book at a later date.

In the meantime, here’s the cover.


Perception cover reveal


The world will never look the same…

There comes a defining moment in every young person’s life that irrevocably shifts their point of view. For a new teacher who still compares herself to her students, it’s a missing girl and a false accusation that could cost her more than her career. For a young man who settles into a rut that not even his broken marriage can pull him out of, it’s a drifter’s gun to his head. For an idealistic college student, it’s her parents’ divorce pulling back the curtain on who they really are, shattering everything she thought she knew about love. And for a recovering addict who’s not ready to change, it might just be an unhappy ending to her illicit affair.

In Perception, discover five captivating stories that explore what it means to be a new adult.
