July 12, 2018: Refugee - review
Posted by William King


Refugee by William King.

A poignant, gritty adventure detailing the harrowing escape of a pair of teens from their war torn home, seeking safety and freedom from bombs and rubble, and from predators preying on innocence. Along the way a colorful cast of characters contributes love, hope, and assistance at timely moments as heroes and heroines appear and disappear. Decisions made have consequences, sometimes dire, as the odyssey unfolds across several countries. Often uncomfortable, more often inspiring, this well written tale twists and turns amidst ever stronger bonds of friendship and love. Well done Mr. King. Thank you for your efforts to see this one through.


Mahouser,  May 2018

July 8, 2018: Two New Stories and a Warning! ;)
Posted by The Story Lover


Dear Readers,

Beldro Mercier has brought Chapter One of his brand new story We All Wear Masks, and it is a bit different style than Golden Bridge Chronicle so start reading.

Boudreaux has brought us Chapter Thirty~Two of Dear Diary and I feel that it is only fair to our readers to post the following words from the author: "Yes, Dear Diary has been updated.  This is a humdinger of a chapter though, so be forewarned.  There are lines of dialogue from all of the wildest, craziest characters in my division.  I'm not sure if our esteemed Clan Archivist (aka my editor) will recover.  He seemed to indicate in the negative when he sent the chapter back to me for posting, so in case I need a new editor the position now requires a prescription for valium.  If I don't need a new editor, he may need donations to help pay for his valium.  Anyway, you have been warned.  Read at your own risk." 

Boudreaux also brings us Chapter One of his new story Lagniappe.

Also please don't forget that the only pay that the authors receive for their hard work of writing your favourite stories is your emails saying thank you. So drop off an email to your favourite author today.

Happy Reading,
