READ THE FIRST TWO CHAPTERS: Marrow Charm by Kristin Jacques

GET YOUR COPY CHAPTER ONE The gap between the blacksmith and Morgan's Drink House was just wide enough for Azzy and her pickaxe to squeeze through. The soot-covered apprentices and hungover patrons paid little attention to the lone girl sneaking off between the buildings. None of them would snitch on her—they hated the Elder as much as she did. The damp air outside the Heap belied the dangers of the dark. She kept a sharp ear out for the ever-present threat of grimwerms, trailing her fingers along the slick wall of the main tunnel to guide her. A light would be discovered by the watchers at the gate, and Azzy found her way better in the dark. Light made too many shadows, made her miss things

READ THE FIRST TWO CHAPTERS: Alex McKenna & the Geranium Deaths by Vicki-Ann Bush

GET YOUR COPY CHAPTER ONE Alex held Margaret, his firm hand pressing her head to his shoulder. His breath brushed across her ear. “Don’t look, no matter what you hear. That’s how it gets you.” All the other victims had turned to ice. Alex couldn’t understand why, but the rules didn’t apply to him. None of the deceased were family, so maybe that was his armor. His family history protected him somehow. They were huddled behind the furnace in the basement while they attempted to construct an escape plan. Although in a frenzy, Alex knew the level of heat from the unit should be enough to throw the beast temporarily off their trail. The foul spirit followed the warmth from the living, which made

Fantasy Foodie: Alex McKenna's Veal Parmesan

Since none of my relatives ever measured ingredients, if I give an amount, it’s my best guess. Italians are infamous for a dash and a sprinkle, and this is how I cook and how I handed down my families recipe’s to my kids. Mangia! Ingredients: 2lbs of fresh veal cutlets Italian breadcrumbs 4 eggs Fresh grated Parmesan cheese Salt Black pepper Garlic Powder or if using fresh garlic, 4 cloves chopped Italian seasoning (oregano, thyme, rosemary, basil, sage) You can use fresh, but I’ll admit over the years I’ve relaxed a little from the old ways and use the dry ingredients already mixed together. 1-2lb thinly sliced Mozzarella Olive oil 2 Large plates Paper towels Large fry pan Large glass or me

GET YOUR COPY ALREADY A BESTSELLER: CHAPTER ONE My mother slipped the corset over my head and tightened the straps. She cinched and pulled until it laid, pressing my ribs together, snug enough to satisfy her. I finally let out a breath. Even though I grew up wearing these lousy pieces of fashion, it always felt as though I had to relearn how to breathe. “I'll do what I can,” she finally said. I sat down on the chair whose back I’d been gripping for the past ten minutes. I wanted to hunch, but I couldn’t. It was like my bones had been replaced with steel rods. I bit back a swear as my mother gathered up my hair and pinned it in a neat, tight knot on the crown of my head. She patted down the f

5 Mini Harvest Moon Rituals

Whispers of rebirth rattle the dusk-sodden leaves as our brazen summer fades to a smolder. Autumnal festivals abound in the crisper air, and farmers take stock of their bounties—delicious corn, pumpkin, squash, and wild rice—before the darkness seeps in. "As you sow, so shall you reap," the witchlings of the wood mutter in earnest. That's right... Fall's here. Well, very nearly. The Harvest Moon is the full moon that lands nearest the Autumn Equinox—or Mabon, as the holiday is known to Celts and pagan communities. This year, the moon acts as Mabon's luminous harbinger; most of North America will enjoy the large red-orange orb on the eve of Friday, September 13th, while it graces much of the

READ THE FIRST CHAPTER: MEATSPACE by Asa Tait

GET YOUR COPY CHAPTER ONE When I look up, I want to think the system works. That everything makes sense. I watch the heavens sweep yellow behind a spiral of luminous white clouds. Three different suns burn through long streaks of shredded ivory to caress the ground with a soft glow. And yet, just below the second sun, the slow curl of a cloud repeats. It doubles on itself, snaps back. Whoever pushed this one left a glitch. The sky is broken. I only noticed the glitch because it doesn’t take my full attention to run down the suspect. The perp’s strap-laden suit and short cape is an obvious nod to classic adventure mods, the kind of skin a Tourist lives for. His sloppy navigation through the D

THE SHRIKE AND THE SHADOWS Dream Cast!

Time for some make-believe “Movie Magic”! While we were writing The Shrike and the Shadows, we had a clear image of our characters. While we were writing, we came up with character boards for each one. The actors we chose are who we had in mind as the story unfolded, which was amusing to us for some. So, in a perfect world where all books are made into movies and slammed on the big screen for millions to see, here is our dream cast: Hans Played by Tom Holland Tom is a starlet. As Spiderman, he’s amazing! I feel like he would do well in a more serious role, and Hans is a dark, and somewhat damaged character. I would have a lot of fun seeing him play an anti-hero or someone you wouldn’t necess

All young magicians should look to their tutors as their primary source of instruction and knowledge.” - A Handbook for the Young and Magical. Introduction. Alton lay on his side, watching the red numbers on his bedside clock change and listening to the heavy breathing of his roommate. The town house and the street outside were quiet. Of all the places Alton had traveled for his studies, this was one of the nicest. Too bad it also came with one of the worst tutors. Edgar Daniels was a small, thin man with a nasally voice and a perpetually bad attitude. He ran his house like a
