My amazing editor and friend H. A. Pruitt helped me come up with the concept and also did the main art piece! Her skills in sketches are phenomenal and really brough the whole theme of the anthology together.

Here's the blurb:
Devoid of light. A depth beyond comprehension.
Everything that stands in the light
Also has a side that stands in the darkness.
Love is no exception.
Love is often depicted as light, joyful, fun, exciting, carefree ...
But there is also a darker side to love—a deeper, frightening, desperate, tragic side.
Dare to dive deep into this raw, emotional collection of short stories, prose, and poems which strives to expose the lightless side of tragedy, heartbreak, desperation, and love.
From the love of gods and goddesses to mortals who fell in love with death to the love forbidden between commoners. From pure sweet romance gone astray to villains who loved the hero.
An actress no longer acting she's in love, a phoenix whose lover gives everything to be with her reborn, a villain who burned the world so his love could be the hero, two immortals who give up everything to live and love, a lonely queen whose touch turns loved ones to ice, a romantic moment re-lived and lost in gold paint. Promises made and promises broken.
Some fall in love.
And some fall out.
After all, ... all's fair in love ...
So so thrilled for this anthology! The cover is only the beginning of all the exciting things in store for this collection! Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter or follow me on social media so you don't miss out.
May the suns smile upon your presence
