Indulge 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.

My Review

As I always do, I must begin with the cover. I really enjoyed the cover for its simplicity. I love the burgundy with a pop of blue. 
As for the book, the book reminded me of some of the writings I had to read in my lit class in college. The stories were all had a dark undertone and written in poetic form. There were a few of the short stories that I did enjoy, the majority of the stories were okay. I felt it was a bit repetitive in its dark nature and author D.e.e.L's interpretation of finding "Bliss" was very interesting. 
I think that this book would be best in a classroom setting where students can read it and write papers of their interpretations of the bliss each story told. But as a sit down and read for pleasure book, it just does not cut the bill for. Sadly the stories were not memorable, and I found myself wanting the book to just end. 
I can say that I truly appreciate D.e.e.L in taking on this form of writing. Again, I would have enjoyed this book more as a reading assignment where I could dissect it with my own opinions. This is where I think this book will totally excel at and be with some of the greats like Edgar Allan Poe. 

Because this book was not an enjoyable sit down read, I just cannot rate high. I would give this book a rating of Mild - Worth It.

About the Author
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.
