Book Release – Concordant Vibrancy 4: Inferno

Greetings, one and all!

If you’ve been following along this past week and a half you probably already know that this is the day that everything has been leading to.

During day one we introduced you to the ingredient of Purpose. Adonis Mann brought up, “Express-Oh”.

Day two we took a look at Commitment via Carol Cassada’s contribution, “Not Always Like This”.

On day three it was all about Consequences; we delved deep into this ingredient via Harmony Kent’s story, “The Fireman”.

Day four examined Love with Beem Weeks’ tale, “The Complications of Fire”.

Day five was overtaken by the ingredient of Reinvention as told by C. Desert Rose’s story, “Calliope’s Inferno”.

Day six told us that Tenacity was an important ingredient no matter what the circumstance through Y. Correa’s, “Moxy”.

Day seven touched on how the ingredient of Risk can be as scolding as any through Synful Desire’s, “Antipode”.

Day eight cleverly showed how Conviction was as good ingredient as any to keep the fire roaring. Da’Kharta Rising showed us how in “The Chronicles of Aidan”.

And last but never-ever least, Queen of Spades indubitably demonstrated how Empathy is the most powerful of ingredients when maintaining our soul’s fire burning in, “The Calefaction of Insight”.

Now that the picture has become clear and Inferno’s stew is bubbling, come serve yourself us a bowl. Come get your copy of, “Concordant Vibrancy 4: Inferno”.

Ingredient 2 of Concordant Vibrancy 4: Inferno! COMMITMENT by Carol Cassada

Day 2 of the Concordant Vibrancy Blog Tour.  Next up is author Carol Cassada.
The first All Authors anthology I participated in was Concordant Vibrancy 3: Lustrate. When I was invited to participate in the fourth Concordant Vibrancy anthology, I was excited at the chance to work with everyone again.
As we gear up for the publication of Concordant Vibrancy 4: Inferno, I thought I’d share details about my story Not Always Like This.
The theme for this Inferno is elements that make a sustainable blaze.
When I think of a blaze, I think of passion. Of course when people hear the word passion, they immediately think of love and romance. But I also feel that passion can also signify commitment. Throughout life, we commit ourselves to various things. There’s commitment to family, to our significant others, our jobs, and making changes in our lives.
For the story, I wanted to write a romance story with the theme of commitment. I admit I had a bit of trouble with the writing. First off, I had two different stories planned, but didn’t know which to choose. When I finally made my choice and started writing the story, I decided to switch up the ending. I had some creative hiccups along the way, but I think the story turned out great.
Not Always Like This focuses on the relationship between Amanda and Daniel. The story starts out showing the couple as newlyweds. They’ve just gotten married and Daniel has landed a high-paying job. The couple is madly in love as they celebrate this new chapter in their lives.
The story then jumps ahead to 10 years to show how life has changed for Amanda and Daniel. The couple is working full-time jobs while also raising their two young children. Yet, there’s one problem. Distance is growing between Amanda and Daniel.
While Daniel is busy working and trying to provide for his family, Amanda is left to take care of the kids. Amanda notices the distance growing between them, while Daniel seems oblivious. When Amanda and Daniel finally address their issues, they have to make a decision on whether to save their marriage or if it’s time to call it quits.
With Amanda and Daniel’s story I wanted to show their commitment to the different aspects of their life. They’re dedicated to their jobs and their children, but you wonder how dedicated they are to their marriage.
One other thing I wanted to focus on in the story is what happens when we question our commitment to someone or something. At certain points in our life, I think we start to question the commitments we’ve made. We wonder if we’re doing the right thing, should we continue on this path, or is it time to make a change.
I won’t reveal too much more about Amanda and Daniel; you’ll have to wait to find out what happens. But I will say I enjoyed writing the story, and I’m excited for everyone to read this collection of work that All Authors has put together.

Since January 2015 All Authors Publishing House has been exploring the elements of nature through the enterprise known as Concordant Vibrancy, an All Authors Anthology Collection.
Book One explored Unity under the theme question of “What elements contribute to the concept of unity?” The element being Earth. Through an array of tales, the authors explained what Unity meant to them.
Book Two examined Vitality. The theme question was, “What force drives your spirit?” The element was Air. Here the authors endeavored to answer the question with a combination of stories and essays.
Book Three looked at Lustrate using the theme question, “What embodies the composition of fluidity?” The element was water. Herein the authors spoke lucidly and clearly on what fluidity meant to them.
Book Four takes a peek at Inferno … the element of Fire. It asks “What are the ingredients to a sustainable blaze?” By far the best of the collection, “Concordant Vibrancy 4: Inferno” is a demonstration of depth in thought and evolution in craft.
Now, without further ado and with great pride All Authors brings you the cover of “Concordant Vibrancy 4: Inferno”.
