I Wish So Hard!

I don’t think hubby is taking me seriously when I tell him I wanted a hedgehog for my birthday. Maybe because he knows they are illegal in California, and also because I am insane. I have been asking for one for the past few months, and he has been laughing it off. I have been showing him videos on where to buy hedgehogs, and how to find good breeders. In all honesty, I think the fun of really wanting something and asking for it repeatedly in the hopes that it might come true has been a lot of fun. Will he actually get me one? I have no clue, and that fact is fun as heck. It really could go either way. It makes me feel like a kid again.

Adamant: The Alliance Series Book One

Two worlds collide… literally.

Ever since a devastating magical war tore apart Ada Fletcher’s homeworld, she and her family have lived undercover on the low-magic Earth, where their magic will go undetected. Stuck in a dead-end job in London, Ada has spent her life hiding her true identity while risking her life to help others escape the deadly battle between magic-wielders and the ruling tyrants. Until she loses her job, is chased by a rampaging monster, and is arrested as a prime suspect for a murder she had nothing to do with. It really isn’t Ada’s day.

Kay Walker, grandson of the Inter-World Alliance’s late founder, expects to spend his first week as an Alliance employee hunting rogue monsters, not solving his supervisor’s murder or questioning a strange, fierce young woman caught trespassing in the Passages between worlds. Killer or not, her abilities raise questions about the Alliance’s history, and the closer he gets to the truth, the higher the body count rises.

The last thing Ada wants to do is help the infuriating Alliance guard who arrested her, but it soon becomes clear that the Alliance knows too much about Ada’s homeworld — and her magic. More, in fact, than she knows herself. One thing’s certain: she’s not the only one keeping secrets, and trusting the wrong person might cost more than her life.

Best Man
by Multiple Authors
4.6 Stars (12 Reviews)
Genre: Contemporary Fiction | Short Stories | Literary Fiction

FREE for a limited time

In a poetically stripped down prose, author Colby Cuppernull presents three linked short stories about the thin line dividing hope from fear and the ways in which the people and landscapes surrounding us shape us for better or for worse.

Best Man tells the story of Ethan Hager, who must decide whether his decision to stay in his small hometown in upstate New York to protect his troubled mother and younger brother is a noble sacrifice or simply a convenient excuse for not facing his own fears about what lies beyond the mountains. In the three stories comprising Best Man, we see Ethan as a child, a teenager, and an adult. In each story, a decision must be made that will forever alter Ethan’s life. Cuppernull elegantly explores Ethan’s descent into hardened bitterness and its impact on the people who love him most while compassionately presenting Ethan’s personal struggle and frustration.

The stories here are taken from Cuppernull’s currently unpublished novel-in-stories, Cold Comfort. The manuscript for Cold Comfort was one of four semi-finalists for the 2010 Mary McCarthy award, judged by celebrated novelist Francine Prose.
