Shades of Holiday Love

8 authors = 8 ways to season love
Love + holidays = a reason to celebrate

Love or hate the holidays?

Nothing mixes together quite like a special day and a special someone. From a time of giving or thanking, to scaring or a new year, if you think holidays alone or with families can be tough, just add in some romance.

What if we weren’t ready for our soulmate when we met them? What can a woman who pondered this question for 21 years do to discover answers on Pride Day?

Can moon-crossed lovers be together or is it too dangerous for werewolves and humans to mix? With the approaching New Year, Amina resolves to fight their attraction but is this the one resolution she should break?

Reflecting on her life, a journalist wonders will love in the 90s be a near miss with the one that got away or will that Thanksgiving be something she will be grateful for?

Can listening to music being created, also create love? Will Yoshie’s Christmas concert practices lead to more than just hearing beautiful music when she crushes on the guy practicing in the room next door? Or will it end on a sour note?

What happens when you mix an Irish immigrant with dreams of land ownership and a logger in 1830 America with Christmas? Can Betsy navigate love and 1850 politics to build a life where her dreams of equality can come true?

How complicated can a love life be? Tom is married, 4 kids, divorced, dating again with a family, and now a New Year get together with the ex? See what happens when the path to true love isn’t always straight.

When Lelise is dumped right before her New Year international trip with her boyfriend, will her grief help or harm her? Can her shattered heart make more room for her to love again?

Is there a countdown to meeting love?

Mingling traditional and non-traditional romances, Write Volumes is celebrating the seasons of love with

15 stories unmasking epidemic bright spots

15 ways forward unlocking hearts

15 reasons to take a shot on this book!  

What is a pandemic to you? How do you unmask what happens afterward?

We have faced a disease that rose suddenly and spread throughout the globe quickly. The speed did not allow for much reflection as we focused on survival. The spread was universal as it impacted the globe. This anthology is a glimpse at COVID-19 and the lockdown, but not at its horrors which we already faced, but at us in the aftermath as we continue, lessons learned, dreams deferred, as we aspire for more than survival.

Perhaps you are a mother with adult kids spread across the USA trying to shepherd all of them home. Or you were in the middle of a job search and understand more about your company during this lock down than you had previously. What would motivate an artist during and coming out of the lock down… fish bowls?

Did you drive across the USA trying to figure out what to do next? Or what about moving after a lung transplant and then learning you needed a second transplant during COVID? FOMO anyone?

Develop any skills during the lock down like travelling through time and space? What about starting a new relationship, ending it, or spicing up an existing one? Did you live with someone who took cleaning to the next level? Want to know what someone’s cat thought?

There are so many variations in the shades of this disease that what comes after is just as diverse. See how these authors view their worlds contracting or expanding into a new normal or into an area where things will never be normal again.

Let us go through these growing pains together as we unlock the lockdown with an epidemic of reading.

12 skyscraping journeys

Paving the way to novel Chicago views

This collection of short stories explores Chicago: the city, the myth, the borders, the legend, the infamous, the truth, the fiction. Past, present and future collide as we walk the Chicago streets wondering: Does a city have an identity, or is it only a landscape for us to project our fears and desires onto it?

How would a 13-year-old Venezuelan girl, sneaking to watch movies set in Chicago on TV at work, think about Chicago while she also tries to remain unnoticed during what feels like the start of a revolution in her home country? Or experience how a veteran of the Great War working at a Chicago steel mill in 1937 might view the city. 

Ride the bus, the el, and the Metra and discover how it can be a haven for unexpected encounters. Or perhaps you’re a tourist and you can watch how your connections to the city evolves with every visit to a Chicago friend. Have you heard of a Chicago winter or the troubles of shopping during one? Or have you ever visualized Chicago with supernaturals: dragons, werewolves, and gargoyles (oh my!)?

Does Chicago shift pre-Pandemic versus during the lockdown? How would you choose which neighborhood to rent or own a home? What does the city mean to you when you miss someone? Or how do you feel when you need to move from Chicago to follow your dreams?

Get a bicyclist’s eye view of Chicago without even leaving the couch.

The stories can be sometimes tense and unapologetic, other times intimate and sentimental, or even humorous and confessional, but they’re always moving moments with the city that works. Do people inhabit a city, or does the city inhabit us? 


Please be our guest and experience the varied shades of Chicago today!

But what troubled Yasmine was their silence. All of them, silent. - LUCKY
