Order your chaos with Shades of Chaos

 Hi Everyone,

It’s summer. Sunshine and chaos is everywhere including our 7th anthology which is available today!


Shades of Chaos

10 writers grasp the unpredictable

13 stories unravel the random

13 ways to color infinite matters


https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B4VNNML8 


(Available on Amazon but you do NOT need a Kindle to read it. Download the Kindle app for free to use on any device of your choosing: phone, tablet, computer, etc)

 

What comes first: life or chaos?

It may not matter since in these individual short stories, Write Volumes is highlighting both life and chaos with some color!

From trying to control chaos, to having it control us, chaos is everything, nothing, anything. So will these characters’ lives be turned upside down or, right-side up, as they experience the trials and opportunities chaos presents?

Please comment, like, and spread the chaos!


Here are some one-line chaos story billboard teasers.  Enjoy and thank you!
