Blissfire- Review and giveaway

idulge yourself with these ten stories surrounding the endless chase for bliss that we are all constantly running. Each story focuses on a character that is striving to find that happiness that will change everything. Some chase after their dreams, others need to fill the wounds of their hearts, and some even need to be reminded of who they truly are. From down into a bottle to writing under a bridge, bliss comes to us in many forms. Each story pushes and compels you into the next as you meet new people and learn their worlds of mind. Written in a poetic tone, this collection offers a read from the heart.

     I was chasing my own bliss while writing this, filling the wounds of my own heart just as each character does. Follow them along and join in their strides for the eternal bliss we all crave, perhaps even discovering your own during the ride.

Blissfire is not a book, I would normally pick up. Short stories can be a hit and miss thing for me. However, I love poetry and like being happy so I was intrigued to read this.  Both the cover and synopsis drew me in. The premise is 10 short stories about happiness as defined by the protagonist. Each story is short and sheet and different from the others. They are well written and rich with detail. They are very poetically written.

Not all the stories were to my my taste. They weren't necessarily offensive, but they did make you rethink happiness. I loved the majority of the tales. These short stories reminded me of fables I read a child.  Some are not what you expect but there is still a huge richness to reading them.  You can tell the author put a lot of effort into this book.

I rate these short stories 4/5 . They are an interesting exploration of happiness and what it means for different people. I think this collection has something for everyone. How do you define happiness? 

The Author: D.E.E.L

D.e.e.L has been writing most of his life; though as a child the stories made much less sense and contained much fewer words, as well as some poorly drawn pictures. Becoming anything but a writer has never been something to cross his mind (though he currently works a day job which makes it that much more painful). He grabs any second within the ticking hands to create new worlds of words and chooses some of them to post online to his many blogs; hoping only to have at least one person obtain a smile upon reading. He has one story collection out so far titled "Blissfire" , which is available on, and many other stories and poetry collections on Smashwords. He also wrote this entire bio himself, which made wording things rather awkward and he hopes that he doesn't sound conceited.
