  1. The Whale

    By Katya Dee, in Fiction. 09/03/2019 (Updated: 09/19/2019)

    17-year-old Amy Bauer moves into a different house with her mother, to a different state, and the worst of all -- a different school. Amy is overweight & her self-esteem gets lower & lower with each passing day. Then on her first day of school, she sees HIM -- the guy she knows she'll hate for the rest of her life, Luke Russell, "The Leader of the Hyena Pack."

  2. Spark & Stone

    By Laura S. Fox, in Fiction. 02/10/2019 (Updated: 09/15/2019)

    The last thing fitness guru Heathcliff Stone needs is a babysitter, mainly because the one thing he hates more than his name - courtesy of his mom who, to this day, continues to be a Brontë obsessed reader - is for someone to try to control him.

    When the most important company endorsing him sends over a preppy looking guy to keep him on a tight leash, his knee jerk reaction is to send the yuppie packing.

    Yet, there is something that stops him from putting the figurative boot in the guy’s ass. Aidan Spark is exactly what the doctor ordered.

    (Full summary inside because there's a character limit)

  10. Chicago Wildlife

    By Young Sage, in Fiction. 05/05/2019 (Updated: 05/27/2019)

    For Camp NaNoWriMo, I had to write 10,000 words in 30 days. The result is two short stories in one. Here they are. Disappearance is a world class thief with ragdoll-like superpowers, and he has his eyes on the Nano Wrimo Diamond. Follow him as he encounters many world building...er, I mean, colorful distractions along the way, meeting up with basic characters that I'll flesh out in future stories...er...complex human beings who can't be boiled down to one or two character traits, and flop flop flop all the way to the bank (figuratively; the diamond is in a museum)! Just think of Disappearance as Male!Catwoman and you'll be all set.

  14. The Boot 1. The Boot

    By Mancunian, in Fiction. 01/20/2019 (Updated: 01/20/2019)

    This fictional story shows how people from different backgrounds can try to support others in a time of desperation, few real tales of homelessness have a happy ending.

    It is written as a tribute to those who in the past and present have given and continue to give either time, money or other support to homeless shelters across the globe. Also in the hope that it will inspire others to do so in the future in whatever small way that they are able.

    Can you help?
