What will you leave behind?

Long after we've left this world, our legacy remains. Or doesn't. Or remains only in the minds of those who knew us, those whose lives we've touched. Those we've written to, or about.

If you had a choice, what mark would you leave? How should people remember you? Should they remember you?

Fourteen authors sat down during the month of January 2015,

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Opinions expressed are my own.

What I found so interesting about this anthology is how each author interpreted the concept of Legacy so differently. Each author spun their creative web into each story, reminding me how the seemingly small moments in our lives is what adds up to the legacy we leave behind. I particularly loved the nonfiction stories, 2 Sides of Legacy by Jenny Milchman dealing with bull

How do you want to be remembered?

What do you want to leave behind when you die?

What will be your legacy?

Legacy: An Anthology is filled with several stories, each interpreting legacy in their own way. It was fascinating to read each story and see how each individual author set their own story apart from the other and creatively leaving their mark in the words written on the page. The idea of creating an anthology focusing on the legacies we leave behind captured my attention and left me wondering

Was given this book in exchange for honest review.

A nice collection of short stories. My personal favourites are "Nagasaki" and "The Uraniums". It's nice to see the authors' different ideas about legacy - what it truly means.

Intriguing collection, of which I am part of, but I discovered a lot of authors in here: David Whitehouse, Paula Young Lee, Marissa Stapley, Piper Punches, lots of amazing stories about Legacy and what part it plays in our lives.

This is a Readers' Favorite review: https://readersfavorite.com/book-revi...

Legacy is an important topic, too often overlooked in today’s fast paced society. There comes a time in life, as some of the characters from this soul touching outcome of a fourteen authors’ gathering reveal, when we wonder about the end and what would happen to our loved ones after we pass away. That is, if there are any loved ones to worry about. Even the coldest or meanest of hearts can melt in front of this intimidat

I usually don’t read short pieces, preferring a deep dive into a novel or the long exploration of a nonfiction book. The anthology Legacy reminded me what short pieces do so well, experimenting with interesting structures that would get tiresome in a novel but are just perfect in a small dose.

Short thoughtful stories.

Last year, I was able to participate in the fun #30Authors event, connecting authors with bloggers and readers. This interaction led to the creation of Legacy, a collection of short stories written specifically for the anthology. This collection includes both fiction and nonfiction pieces, all connected by their exploration of the idea of legacy.

As I say every time I review a short story collection, there were some hits and some misses for me. About half of the fourteen stories really blew me aw
