****Review from one of the authors****
I had so much fun writing my story which is titled "Mirrors." I wrote a piece of myself into the main character who feels like life is just the way it is and you can't change it because YOU SUCK. I know I've definitely looked into the mirror and felt "less than." However, you can change things. You can make life awesome if you just try and find the joy in it or at least kick some ass while you're here. I hope you enjoy my story and the rest of the amazing

Ok, I normally don’t like anthologies because I get hooked on the stories and want to know how they end. The same thing happened with this book. The stories stand out. Some because they are very similar to those we know and have enjoyed reading, some because they are a new plot you haven’t come across before. That’s all I’m going to tell you about the stories in this book. Read it and save yourself...and someone else in the process.

**Review From One of The Authors**
This was a lot of fun to write. I feel like I just sort of asked myself "what would I do in this situation" and just kind of went with it. People who know me will recognize my sarcastic main character, Guy, as me and I think because I did it that way, I was able to have a lot more fun with the character. Yeah, I made fun of a lot of places and people from Maine, but I consider Maine my home and all joking was only in fun! I think it's such a great thing when

This review is from: From Now On: The Last Words Anthology (Kindle Edition)
From Now On:The Last Words Anthology is a great collection of dystopian short stories!! The stories are written from the point of view of nine different authors who must all use the same words to end each story. I was amazed at the creativity and imagination of each author to come up with such diverse and intriguing stories that blended and fit perfectly together in the anthology. All of the authors did a great job of

This collection of short stories is amazing! The authors all do a great job of leaving you wanting more at the end of each story. I could easily see each one of these stories being a full length novel! Each author has a different and distinct voice and style but they all come together with the common phrase "from now on I'll save myself" and at no point did I feel like a story didn't fit. There were so many different approaches to the theme, but they all came together perfectly! I would ...more

This was an intriguing anthology. I've read a few others but this was the first one that had this particular concept...the stories all had to end with the same line. It was interesting to read each story and see how the authors would get to the final line. The stories were all dystopian as far as the genre was concerned. There were several of the stories that have me hoping the authors might decide to expand them into full novels because there was definitely more to be told. And I've made note ...more

I'm not sure what happened to my review, but for some reason it got deleted. So, here it is again!

This is what an anthology should be like: full of stories that spark the imagination and push the reader to think about things in a way they never expected. While there were a couple stories I was less invested in, overall I enjoyed reading this so much. If you like fantasy and scifi, you need to check it out!

There were so many of these stories I loved that I don't think I can pick one favorite. I

Strange mix

Strange mixture of well written stories (Franz, Scott, and Walker) mixed in with predictable pieces. Overall, a pleasant read for the price.

So different

Love all the different genres and the creative ways each other told their story. All short stories that end in the same line but take very different ways to get there.
