A Thousand Words is a collection of life stories. Each chapter showcases a different family’s story. The stories are short (1,000 words or less) and usually focus on an important life lesson or event: a move to a new place, a first job, an achievement, an engagement, a marriage, or the birth of a child. A new edition is published each time a story is added. The cover always features the latest story. If you or someone you know would like to be featured in the next edition, contact the author at www.alisoncotter.com.
