Bestselling Author Piers Anthony Launches WRITER'S RETWEET
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2016

Horrifying illusions. Classified government operations. Heavily guarded secrets. Piers Anthony weaves this and more into 'Writer's Retweet,' a collection of five short stories abounding in the adventure, magic, and naughtiness that fans have come to know and love from this author. The first three stories follow the adventures of painfully average Bigelow Bilge and Paula Plaintiff, who are thrust unwillingly into a world fraught with terrifying, victim-specific illusions. Who-or what-is the source of these horrifying encounters? Why have Bigelow and Paula been targeted? Then, a newspaper reporter in 'Dull Street Incident' gets wind of a delicious Scandal rumored to have punctuated a stale suburban street. Menacing prisoners, conniving teenage girls, and one well-kept secret leads this reporter to the story of a lifetime. But who will believe it? Finally, in 'Forbidden Fruit,' dowdy, middle-aged Edith happens upon a mysterious fruit that completely alters her life-and the life of Kent, an attractive, young neighbor. Seduced by her newfound magical abilities and rediscovered sex appeal, Edith plunges into a world filled with demons, pleasure, and unthinkable risk. Dive into this collection of stories and prepare for a whirlwind ride. 'Writer's Retweet' is now available for purchase on Amazon. Paperback: $8.00 Ebook: $3.99; free for Kindle Unlimited Users Please contact Kristi at to request review copies or to receive exclusive author interviews, notice of new releases, and cover reveals.
