Reviews of Pocket-sized Yarns by Indie Writers

Jennifer Moreland reviewed on June 15, 2015

Note: I received a copy of this book as part of a review group in exchange for an honest opinion.

First off, it's hard to review a collection like this. So many little slices of story to savor. I found it to be nicely varied in style and subject matter. The fact that these were very, very short stories meant they had to draw the reader in quickly, but sometimes it felt like we were escorted out again a bit fast. All in all, an enjoyable collection of reads. I liked some, loved others -- exactly as a collection should be. I can't think of one I just didn't enjoy.

I really wish I'd been a part of this, and as an author, that's the highest praise I can offer. Can't wait to read the next collection.

I liked some stories a lot more than others. A bit too literary for my taste, but a good read overall.

I'm mighty glad I discovered this collection of (very) short stories, it restores my faith in the indie author industry. These people know their stuff. Each story only takes five minutes to read, and if I were to rate each one individually, I'd give five stars to ninety percent and four to the rest. In other words, great.
I shall certainly be following up other materiel by these talented writers.

To reveal a gem's beauty, a course of action is necessary. These include cutting, shaping, polishing, and removing defects, such as cracks, flaws, and cloudiness.
Similarly, in a unique collaboration, the authors in this collection of micro stories have honed one another's work until each yarn shines like a brilliant gem.
I have written two stories in this compilation. Rather than write a review, I would like to praise the comradeship and teamwork among this group of indie authors. The result is remarkable. Thank you. Five stars.

Pocket-sized Yarns is a professionally edited and produced collection of twenty micro-stories, each 540 words or less.

Okay, I contributed. This is not about me. This is about a group of indie writers who decided to show what the best of indie can be. And they have. This is a must-read anthology for every aspiring indie writer, and everyone who has ever thought of writing off indie authors as not worth their time. And it is for everyone who dreamed about becoming a writer.

P.S. When you read it, try and pick your favourite story. Go on, try. All right, if you can't settle on just one, then pick your top five favourites. And good luck with that!
