Paranormal Stories of the Other Side - Book 1 by Daryl Sedore

About the Book: Paranormal Stories of the Other Side Book 1 is filled with stories of people in everyday situations trying to deal with something extraordinary.
In Second Chances we meet Perry Strall. A man who has been married over forty years without any violence, but last night he hit his wife and today his wife can’t see him.

In Near Death Experience a woman dies before her man gets to meet her and then she shows up with knowledge from the Other Side.

In A Time of Love a woman keeps seeing her husband on downtown streets. When she runs over to him he is no longer there yet his presence changes her life; if she can stay alive long enough.
About the Author: Daryl Sedore was born in southern Ontario in 1969. By the age of ten he was already writing short stories. Throughout High School various teachers encouraged him to choose writing as a career, but Daryl decided to invest in the stock market (TSE) in grade 11 and start his first company at the age of seventeen. He built numerous companies and became semi-retired at thirty years of age. During the 1990's he still wrote short stories, but it wasn't until the year 2000, that he started writing novels. Daryl has written four novels and over 50 short stories, plus a work of non-fiction called "Publishing Exposed: The Sedore Report" which will be published in November 2010. Six of his short stories have won awards, including, "The Newspaper" which won 6th place out of thousands of entires in the 75th Annual Writer's Digest Short Story Contest.
"Paranormal Precognitions" has been released as an e-book. The second of the trilogy is due out in early 2011. In November, "The Sedore Report" is due, along with four different volumes of his collected short stories featuring all the award winners. His novel "Bad Vibes" will be released in the fall of 2011.

My Thoughts: I don't often read short stories or anthologies but when I signed up for this giveaway I thought it would be interesting. The funny thing is, I didn't really realize when it said from the other side it was from the 'other side'. I read Paranormal stories and said I wanted to win this book. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised.

After reading this book, I found myself thinking if things like these stories really happen or can happen. You hear about mediums or clairvoyants who can speak to people from the other side and although some of them may truly have that power, there are a lot of fake ones out there.

The stories in this book are short and well written. They are stories about people who have had some kind of experience with some kind of paranormal activity but not the kind we see in the movies as evil. These paranormal activities are of the 'happy' kind and seem to give the protagonist a sense of closure, pleasure or even safety.

The stories are light and easy to read. For anyone interested in reading paranormal stories, this is a good book to start with.

DISCLAIMER: I was in no way compensated to review this book. These are my opinions of a book in which I won on Library Thing.
