This is our first book in which we decided to club the winning stories from two contests that were run on our platform; since the genre of the stories were a perfect fit for ‘The Other Side’.
Here’s what the jury had to say about all the winning stories:
Each and every story was a gem by itself. They were awesome in a way that it instilled a tingling sensation behind my neck, they were eerie and gave me goosebumps. Hence, the writers maintained ‘The Other Side’ cover story to scare the daylights out of the readers through their stories.

To write a story keeping a book cover in mind is challenging in itself and the writer has this huge responsibility of creating something that stands out as a story from The Other Side. It is absolutely stunning to see how much talent lies out there, unread. I enjoyed reading the stories. Best wishes to the writers and Team WriteFluence.

It’s been a great pleasure being on the jury for WriteFluenza and getting to read such twisted plots. These are some really brilliantly crafted stories and must be read by a larger audience. I wish all the writers and WriteFluence a happy literary journey ahead!

Their choice of words, their thought process, their writing capabilities to keep the reader guessing as to what’s going to happen next, their talent is to vouch for. Each of these stories are so well written, you want more towards the end. I am plain lucky to be on the panel to get to read such talent.
