This publication is a testimony of the sixth year a group of Louisiana authors assembled their collective muse to create an anthology celebrating the short story and united in the fact that a heritage element is common. This year, ten authors have collaborated to produce the outstanding collection of diverse short stories we call, "Our Abiding Heritage."
The nine short stories contained in Second Chances are as diverse in technique and theme as our previous years’ writings; nevertheless, they are united in the fact that a second chance event is a common element. We invite you to take notice of the techniques used by this array of talented authors to weave those second chance related appearances into their stories.
These ten adventures will take you to places you have never been. When you return from these experiences, chances are some will have left you wanting for more. If so, then check out that story’s author page in the back of the book. They might have something else you’ll like. We believe you’ll be glad you did.
