A Note from Emma Mitchell:
As the blurb tells us, When Stars Will Shine is a multi-genre collection of Christmas-themed short stories compiled to raise money for our armed forces and every penny made from the sales of both the digital and paperback copies will be donated to the charity.
Working closely with Kate Noble at Noble Owl Proofreading and Amanda Ni Odhrain from Let’s Get Booked, I’ve been able to pick the best of the submissions to bring you a thrilling book which is perfect for dipping into at lunchtime or snuggling up with on a cold winter’s night. I have been completely blown away by the support we’ve received from the writing and blogging community, especially the authors who submitted stories and Shell Baker from Baker’s Not So Secret Blog, who has organised the cover reveal and blog tour.
There isn’t a person in the country who hasn’t benefited from the sacrifices our troops, past and present, have made for us and they all deserve our thanks.
It has been an honour working on these stories, and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have.

I love short stories as you get a taste of what the author can do with their writing. However with all of these compilations there are always some great and some that need improvement.
This book had so many wonderful stories which just resonated so well. I am not going to go into what stories were great.
This compilation was just wonderful and even though there are some stories that weren’t my genre these ones were still solid.
I really love the great abilities of all of these authors who write for this book. The book is great and I love how well compiled this was. I do wish that they had done organization by genre as well as there were stories that weren’t for men based on genre and type.
