The Consulting Gig: A Love Story

by C.J. Capen

THOSE EYES. THAT LOOK.

The only way Andie Halzer survived her husband’s death was by remembering a stranger’s glance. As she sobbed inconsolably in the hospital hallway, his face transmitted empathy and a sense of calm. Somehow, that look told her that her life wasn’t over.

After two years of grievingâ??and with the support of her two grown kids and best friendâ??she is ready to rebuild her life. She aces an interview for a position that offers meaningful work, but her potential employer, Jack Devlan, hires another candidate. He offers Andie a short-term consulting gig instead.

Andie reluctantly agrees to what she considers a consolation job, not realizing how much change is in store for her. Her work with Jack challenges her self-limiting beliefs and ultimately restores her emotional strength.

This is a full length, stand-alone, clean romance that contains adult themes and language.

The Unorthodox Ox

by Thomas Morison

There is the protagonist, the anti-hero who has married the wrong person. There is the spouse, the antagonist, a difficult and habitual fault-finder, she has been undermining his and her own sanity for years.

The protagonist has a job to oversee, monitor, and manage environmental destruction that uncontrollably seems to be leading to catastrophe, to a cataclysm; so then it is evident that his work has been dragging him down for some time.

Then the dilemma that the story relates is that of an anti-hero who gets on with life as anyone might when backed up against the wall and with no reasonable way out. But there is an interest that he comes across, a romantic interest, a love interest, and she is someone who is interested in improving her lot as well.

The story in “The Unorthodox Ox” deals with the untangling of a personal and professional situation which when resolved will allow different parties to move on and live a little better.



TOLLWUT: BANG BANG (German Edition)

by Mrs. McH

Eine Frau, ein Mann, ein Wolf, eine Begegnung der anderen Art. Spiele mit dem Feuer und die Frage, wer am Ende Sieger, Verlierer oder der wahre Wolf ist. * * *

»Niemand würde ihr jemals glauben, dass es dieses Tier dereinst gegeben hatte. Es würde niemals mehr gewesen sein als eine Ausgeburt ihrer Phantasie. Und dann ist ihr nur noch eines geblieben: Tollwut!« BANG BANG! * * *

TOLLWUT: BANG BANG ist eine überarbeitete Neuausgabe von FEUERSPIELE von Mrs.McH! * * *

Phantasie oder Wirklichkeit? »Als er sich zurückzieht und mich zwingt, ihn anzuschauen, sehe ich mich selbst von einem glühenden Schwert tropfen. Pulsierende Fleischstreifen aus Phantasie und Wirklichkeit. Und dieses Märchen wird nicht gut ausgehen, flüstert mir die Phantasie ins Ohr. Am Ende wird das alles nicht passiert sein, widerspricht die Wirklichkeit. Ich will beiden keinen Glauben schenken. Vielleicht ist es nie mehr als ein Märchen oder eine kurze, fabelhaft verspielte Geschichte gewesen. Möglicherweise ist es aber doch die Wirklichkeit, die wie Feuer brennt. Spiel, bis du stirbst, höre ich dieses Tier in meiner Phantasie knurren. Da begreife ich, dass ich von einem fieberhungrigen Wolf gerissen werde. Was immer es ist, die Geschichte muss erzählt werden, knurrt er mich an. Ich spiele mit. Und erzähle sie: Eine sehr kurze Geschichte …«
