Why stories about the dead?  Creating (After)Life

by Victoria M. Johnsonafterlife

Purple Passion Press is thrilled to announce the release of our first anthology based on a theme that fascinates me. The title is (AFTER)life: Poems and Stories of the Dead. I grew up believing in ghosts and spirits but it wasn’t until I lost dear ones that I became riveted by the afterlife. I wondered not only where have my loved ones gone, but also, what are they doing and who are they with? As I mentioned my questions to poets and writers they told me that they, too, were intrigued by the subject and had addressed those questions in their poetry and writings. Before I knew it, I was compiling an anthology of 38 amazing authors who take us into their hearts, minds, and imaginations as they visualize and express how the dead communicate with others, and how the living connect to those no longer here. These writings reveal deep emotions, take us to interesting places, and explore surprising possibilities. Come to our launch event and meet some of the authors.

Village House of Books will be hosting the launch party for (AFTER)life at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, April 22nd. Join us in celebrating the authors who contributed to the book, with confirmed appearances by Victoria M. Johnson and editor Renée M. Schell.
