What I’ve Been Reading:

Seanan McGuire’s November Patreon Short story dropped this week. Plus, I read a couple Zoe Chant paranormal romance short stories: Unicorns and Honey Cakes.

Gale has a problem. A really thorny problem. He can’t touch anything made of wood without it bursting into bloom… which is inconvenient, to say the least. Clearly, his unicorn is cranky about something – Gale just wishes he knew what.

In the meantime, being cursed with the world’s most annoying green thumb is making it pretty much impossible to continue working as a sous chef. Maybe a relaxing trip into the mountains will be enough to soothe his sullen unicorn.

After years of hard work, Sylvie’s dream has finally come true: she’s opened her own bakery in her sleepy little hometown, and her signature dishes are selling like… well, hotcakes. That is, until the flashy new bakery down the road opens up – and they’re not only stealing her customers, but her recipes as well.

When the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks through her door, Sylvie knows there’s something special about him… but a gorgeous guy coming in to buy her cakes is hardly going help her save her business. Right?

and Lights Camera Werewolf

This stunt wolf isn’t just a very good boy. He’s her perfect man.

Posing as a trained dog for a low-budget horror movie is the worst idea wolf shifter Louis has ever let his best friend talk him into, but the money is too good to pass up. Besides, how hard can it be to growl for the camera, chase a few actors, and not let anyone realize Dr. Werewolf is starring a real werewolf?

Very hard, when it turns out that the woman painting fake blood onto his fur is his fated mate…

Makeup artist Stephanie thought working on Dr. Werewolf would be a fun distraction after dumping her cheating ex-boyfriend. But not only is her cheating ex on set as a caterer, he still thinks he can persuade her to get back together. Even worse, the star of Dr. Werewolf isn’t someone in a costume, it’s something straight out of her worst nightmares…

After a childhood scare, even the gentlest dog makes Stephanie freeze up. But she is not going to let the crew down and she is not giving her ex the satisfaction of seeing her scared. She’ll just have to grit her teeth and do her best to avoid both the dog and the ex as much as possible.

Determined to win over his mate, Louis will have to give the performance of a lifetime as a sweet and cuddly dog who is definitely not an actual wolf, figure out how to tell her the truth about shifters, and help her deal with her ex once and for all.

New Works By Previous Guests:

From Charles E. Gannon himself!

This Broken World (Vortex of Worlds Series Book 1)


A young man must face dangers from without and within—and question everything he believes to be true.

Since boyhood, Druadaen expected he’d ascend to the command of an elite legion and become the leader his father predicted he would be. However, fate had something different in store.

Assigned instead to a small group of outriders tasked with watching nearby kingdoms, Druadaen discovers that the world beyond his homeland is riddled with impossibilities. How do humanoid raiders, known as the Bent, suffer staggering losses and yet return as a vast horde every decade? How do multi-ton dragons fly? How have fossils formed in a world which sacrists insist has existed for only ten millennia?

Determined to solve these mysteries, Druadaen journeys into the dank warrens of the Bent, seeks out a dragon’s lair, and ventures into long-buried ruins in search of ancient scrolls. But, whereas legends tell of heroes who encounter their greatest perils during just such forays into the unknown, Druadaen’s most lethal enemies might lurk in even more unusual places:

The temples and council chambers of his own homeland.
