About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Just as a kaleidoscope bounces back shimmering light and shades of color, so does Kaleidoscope reflect the many hues of the human experience. Spanning the ages and encompassing genres as diverse as historical fiction and fantasy, this remarkable collection of short stories enchants with tales that will stick with you long after the book is closed.

Meet Lavinia, whose abuse at the hands of her parents transforms her into the goddess of the sea. Run with a warrior who sprints like an antelope. Cross a desert of glass with Jannu, an immortal, on the Planet of Lights. Visit a town called Poinsettia, Georgia, where the Flower sisters are each named for a different blossom. Fly across the sky with a giant man, or watch an abandoned lace factory come back to life. Watch a tragedy unfold in the steamy hot city in summer, and the sadness of lives lost in gang wars.

Through it all, author Regina Phelps dazzles with her gift for moving narratives, complex layers of meaning, crackling dialogue and unexpected wit. These are the stories that explore what it means to love, to hate, to forgive, and to experience life more fully—and in full color.

Deftly constructed at 256 pages, Kaleidoscope: A Collection of Short Stories is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction / Short Stories (single author) category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Kaleidoscope meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $15.95.

Additionally, Kaleidoscope can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
