I have to tell you how the story begins, the story that is, of this book. One day Christine Baker posted a picture of a bottle of blood on my Facebook page. It was an incredible photo and all I could think of was:

What a great book this would be!

But then I thought some more. I thought, I wonder if other creative minds are looking at this image are thinking the same thing? What would they be thinking?
So I decided to ask in my group on Facebook, would anyone be interested in writing a story about a bottle of blood such as this?

These amazing authors spoke up and now the book has come to fruition. There was only one rule. Somewhere in your story there has to be a bottle of blood. That is all, no more no less. It was up to the creative minds of these authors to structure their short stories.

I have to say I couldn't be more pleased and this exercise in literature has shown me how we can all be so similar yet so different in what we see and imagine.

Thank you so much authors of "Tales of the Sanguine Elixir"! Thank you for participating. Thank you for using your imagination to help bring this anthology of horror to life!
