The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness

By Craig Stone / Genre: Humor, Philosophy / Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (45 reviews)

The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness

“Sometimes you need sit in the wrong place to see the right view”.

What if you listened to that voice in your head telling you to walk out of your job? What if another voice, in a peculiar French accent, was telling you to go and live in a park?
What if you listened to both voices and ended up sitting on a park bench, having walked out on your job and flat earlier that day, with no idea what you are doing?

Well, that’s what I did.

This is the story I made up whilst trying to keep my sanity as I lived alone in a park, as I came to terms with what I was doing, after making some extremely bold, and some might say, stupid choices.

I sat under a tree in real life, writing about what it was like to be homeless. After a while, due to starvation and lack of human contact, I started writing a rambling story that was my minds only outlet.

The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness is that story.

Wicked Sense

By Fabio Bueno / Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult / Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (31 reviews)

Revised

Witches inhabit our world, organized in covens and hiding behind a shroud of secrecy–the Veil.

Skye’s London coven sends her to Seattle’s Greenwood High to find the Singularity, an unusually gifted witch who may break the Veil and trigger a dangerous new era of witch-hunting. Things get complicated when Skye meets a charming new classmate, Drake. Skye’s job becomes even trickier when she clashes with Jane, an intimidating rival witch.

Drake falls for the mysterious Skye, but odd accidents, potion mix-ups, and the occasional brush with death kind of get in the way of romance. Once he discovers Skye is a witch, he goes to war for her, even though his only weapons are a nice set of abs and a sharp sense of humor.

Fighting off wicked Jane and the other dark forces hell-bent on seizing the Singularity’s immense power, Skye and Drake will risk everything to save the covens.

Going on a date has never been harder.

Unconventional

By J. J. Hebert / Genre: Christian Fiction / Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (102 reviews)

Revised

Young James Frost just knows, deep in his bones, that he’s a writer. He writes far into early mornings, after his wearying hours of scrubbing toilets and sweeping floors. He loves writing that much.

But it’s not only the joy of words that keeps him grinding; it’s his desire to retire the janitor’s mop. He sees being published as the key to living an improved life. James has another deep-seated conviction: that he’s not good enough. He secretly longs to be accepted. However, the conventional others in his life seem all too willing to remind him that he’s wasting his time.

Then he meets and falls in love with Leigh, the one bright spot in his endless misery of self-doubt. A quiet but resolutely religious girl, she has to fight off disapproval of her own from overly critical parents, whose insults are countered by James’s often-voiced admiration of her. Likewise, Leigh’s faith in his talents begins to build his confidence, eventually allowing her to introduce him to a different way to help himself: relying on God.

Ultimately, James’s newfound faith is sorely tested to the point of doubt when his dream to be published seems to melt into a mirage, smothered by countless rejection slips from agents and publishers. His faith is also battered by having to fight highly emotional battles and suffer fear and loss. Just when James appears hopelessly sapped by devastating events, one last door opens, and he’s rocked by an epiphany.
