The Dreamer and the Deceiver (The Last Light Book 1), by Alex Villavasso
Emil is a wanderer, a fugitive from an unjust law, and being alive is his only crime. Emil is an Abnormal - a seemingly normal human being gifted with superhuman abilities.
From the second Emil first channeled the light energy his body produced, his life was no longer his own. Abnormals like him are forced to join the king's covert division named Legion to enforce his tyranny, or be put down like beasts. For years Emil has been able to evade the hand of the king and his capture by Legion, until on a seemingly normal night Emil's village is ambushed, and he is forced to helplessly watch as a fire-manipulating Abnormal sent by the king leads a massacre that destroys everything he loves.

Enraged and sick of running, Emil sw...

Beginnings: Ahe'ey, Episode 1, by Jamie Le Fay
Morgan is a dreamer, change maker and art lover. She is a feisty, romantic feminist full of contradictions and insecurities. Morgan uncovers a world where women have the power, and where magic is no longer just a figment of her wild imagination. Sounds like a dream, but it may, in fact, turn into a nightmare.

The Candidate in the Rye: A Parody of The Catcher in the Rye starring Donald J. Trump, by John Marquane
"If you really want to hear about me running for president, the first thing you'll probably want to know is what country I was born in, and what my experience holding political office is like, and what my tax returns say, and all that Mitt Romney kind of crap, but I don't feel like talking about any of that, if you want to know the truth. And if I'm being honest -- I'm the best at the truth. I really am.”

-The Candidate in the Rye

One day not too long ago, John Marquane, a one-time writer for the Harvard Lampoon, noticed that The Catcher in the Rye was in fact written in the voice of Donald J. Trump. With just weeks before the November 2016 election, Marquane got to work.

The Candidate in the Rye parodi...
                     
Going Rogue (Spells, Swords, & Stealth Book 3), by Drew Hayes
Adventuring is a costly affair, and while the tolls are often paid in blood, gold can drain away just as quickly. The party’s trek out of Solium and across the lands of Alcatham has left them with only a handful of gold between them. Fortunately, they have drawn near Camnarael, Alcatham’s capital, where all manner of quests--and rewards--await.

But all is not as expected in the capital. Unusual occurrences have been happening throughout Camnarael: figures in the shadows making unsavory bargains, attackers harassing innocent parishioners, and adventurers from all over the land gathering to partake in a Grand Quest offered by the royal family. Most curious of all are the rumors that speak of a strange artifact serving as the r...
