Sunday Snippet #79

Sunday Snippet #79 Basklisk  by: Rob Thurman Roc August 2, 2011 REVIEW HERE  Things are never as easy as they appear on the Net or in instructional videos.  I blamed an imperfect world for that.  I was a genius – I wasn’t blaming myself, because it obviously was not my fault.  Stefan didn’t throw up as I gradually turned theoretical into a reality.  I had to give him credit.  He turned green, he closed his eyes, he cursed nonstop, but he didn’t vomit, and it was an extremely bumpy ride for at least fifteen minutes.  Godzilla did throw up, down Stefan’s shirt as he wrapped himself tightly around my brother’s neck and...

Sunday Snippet #71 Grave Dance  by Kalayna Price   ROC Publishing July 5, 2011 REVIEW HERE  Alex, an oatmeal crème pie doesn’t’ count as breakfast.”  Falin said, staring at the prepackaged sweet as if it had offended him. I shrugged, “Don’t knock it,” I said.  I perched in the one chair I owned and opened my laptop.  I’d put fresh sheets on the bed and I hoped Falin would get a little more rest.  He might have some super-fae healing powers, but the glimpses I’d caught of him unglamoured proved he still needed some recuperation time.  “So, did I draw the queen’s attention with the tear or the castle?” “Castle?”  Falin’s eyebrow...
