A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words by Samie Sands and other talented authors. It had a wide scope of stories and various styles of writing. Very interesting. My favorite from this book was Hilltop Menagerie. The book was made to go to charity and the authors did not slack up on their writing at all. Top notch for this book. Great job. I was given this book for a honest review.

This author has done it again! This is a wonderful collection of random stories that I have found all as outstanding. I enjoyed every single story and as always, I look forward to more by Sami Sands. However, I have a few new authors I am thinking need more of my attention.

This is a great collection of stories which are all 1,000 words long after a challenge to do so from a picture. How will each author do? Where will they take you? Read each one to see
