Announcement From Kim Pritekel
Hello, all! Just to let you know that my ebooks are now available in not only PDF, but also Mobi and epub. Also, new novella finished, 'It's All Relative'. Come check out my site and grab some stories that you can't find anywhere else! www.kimpritekel.com/ebooks.

Nature of the Beast by Cheyne Curry [Original/Alt/Complete]
This story should be considered a Xena Conqueror Uber. I felt by making the lead characters familiar ones, the actions of the Uber XC will hopefully prepare the reader for the traumatic events that unfold in the story. No money is being made off this story. No copyright infringement intended. Other than that, the characters and the story are mine. Description: Caprice Gallagher has been a fan of singer Hannah Brishen for years. One night, she finally gets the attention she has always desired from the sultry, gorgeous woman. Maybe some fantasies should stay just that.

Content Warning: This story depicts a lesbian relationship. If you have no idea what that is, look it up. If it's not your cup of tea, please move on. ***WARNING: This is a disturbing story about sexual violence. It was not written to titillate. If it helps raise awareness, then I guess there was a reason my muse made me go to the dark side. SERIOUSLY… READ THE WARNING BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER. This story may be too intense for some.

Announcement From The Academy of Bards
Well, this year we did not put together an evil punzle. We put together an evil photo scavenger hunt instead. Those of you familiar with BardCon know that I did one of these each year. BIG THANKS to Evil J who did an awesome graphic...it's so festive and solstice-y. <.g.> I'm not telling you the theme...you should be able to figure that out yourself and years of experience dealing with these puzzles (and the EVIL duo), should tell you what you need to do. The winner is the one who send us all the correct answers. Have fun. Deadline is midnight December 11th...pick a timezone. Puzzle Contest entries go to academy_contest@yahoogroups.com

Announcement From Geonn Cannon
Riley Parra Season 2 is now completely posted! The last day we'll accept orders is December 1, so be sure not to dawdle! If there's anyone you've wanted to get into the series, make sure they get their copies of Season 2 even if they're not quite caught up on reading the first set of stories. Time's running out!

But this won't be the end of Riley. There WILL be a third season of stories. I can't say exactly when yet, but there will be more stories.

Thank you to everyone who bought the stories, and I hope you enjoyed them. Until I get the third season ready, I'll keep you up-to-date on my novels, and I'll keep you all satisfied with free stories until the next set of Riley is ready to go. Thanks to everyone!

Announcement From Bedazzled Ink
New from Mindancer Press!

Barbara Davies has woven another tale of magic and intrigue. Discover the magical world of Faerie in Barbara's enchanting new book Bourn's Edge.
The Faes at Queen Mab's court have conjured up the ebook edition to be enjoyed by courtiers and mortals alike. The paperback edition will materialize in a couple of weeks.
Following an attempt to kill her, librarian Cassie Lewis leaves the only life she's ever known and flees west into the mist-shrouded borderlands that lie between England and Wales. There, the sleepy, hillside village of
Bourn's Edge provides a safe haven for her to regroup and decide what to do next, and reclusive local artist Tarian Brangwen provides an intriguing and welcome distraction.
But Cassie soon makes a startling discovery that turns her world upside down. For deep in the heart of the adjacent Bourn Forest lies an entrance to Faerie, and the enigmatic Tarian is much more than she appears.

Announcement From The Academy of Bards
Dear Santa: My name is OZ and I've been very good this year. Well, compared to previous years at least. Sorta.

Okay, not really. But I did think about being good...a couple of times. It's the thought that counts, right?

Anywho, not one to push my luck...my Christmas list is pretty short.

I want stories.

Long stories, short stories, comedies, dramas, romances, adventures...you name it...I wanna read it. And I wanna share them with all the Academy Readers. So could you please show all the Bards our current Solstice Challenge Roools and Premise and kinda nudge them to play. Please, Santa?

My Munchkins (that's kinda the Academy's version of your elves) put together this really nifty page that tells them all about the Challenge. http://www.academyofbards.org/contest/challenge24/roools2010.html

It's called Good Things Come In BIG Packages And SMALL Ones Too.

Plus, we have prizes for the Bards who write the BESTEST stories.

Just think, you can make a lot of people happy...no muss, no fuss and no overnight shipping charges.

Thank you Santa. You ROCK!

Take Care, OZ

PS: We'll have a Solstice Puzzle Contest up soon. In case you get a few minutes of break time. Though, I bet, you can ace this one. <.g.>

Announcement From Blue Feather Books
Halloween might be formally over, but thanks to the latest release from Blue Feather Books, you can continue to savor the scary best of that holiday. Jamie Scarratt's debut novel, 30 Days Hath September, a paranormal romance, is now available for ordering.

In 1927, Red Wolverton, Boston's only female private investigator, has a penchant for men's clothing and female lovers.

Evadne Davenport, a well-educated, wealthy, and widowed socialite has a desire for adventure and intrigue and would like nothing more than the chance to send her mother-in-law into a screaming apoplectic fit. To that end, Evadne is determined to become Red's secretary.

Red hires Evadne, but the new secretary doesn't last a full day. Then a ghastly murder prompts Red to pursue a destructive course for vengeance. Danger escalates, and Red and Evadne find themselves reunited, joining forces to cope with violence, deceit, and death.

Their friendship grows and deepens, but so does the evil they're faced with. Will their burgeoning relationship survive? Will they prevail over the dark forces that threaten their very lives, or will an ancient force be unleashed to change their world forever?

Place your order now, break out that bag of trick-or-treat candy you "forgot" you'd tucked away in the cupboard, and settle in for a spooky, satisfying read of 30 Days Hath September.

Update From Nene Adams
the wound is not healing and the surgeon wants to try a procedure similar to angioplasty. If it works the artery will open up and wound should improve, if it fails they can't do reconstructive surgery. That means they have to amputate.

Announcememt From Kim Pritekel
After posting novels and stories free online for ten years, I've decided it's time to start up a website where new novels, short stories and web series can be sold in PDF ebook form for an extremely low price. This is what I do for a living, so it's time to stop giving it away, as a few of you have asked why I do. Also, lately many have been asking about my work in ebook form, which unfortunately isn't quite available with my publisher yet, so here's your chance! However, none of my published work will be on this website, so sorry, guys!

Come check it out at: www.kimpritekel.com/ebooks . There will be more stories available soon, so keep checking back, or you can simply join the K Productions Yahoo Group for emailed updates.

I will still post online periodically 'cuz I love you guys that much, so keep an eye out.

Thank you!
Kim Pritekel

Added Part 8 and Part 9 (Epilogue) of A Guardian's Touch by Stein Willard [Original/Alt/Complete]
For 2 000 years Tahlia had lived on the fringes of humanity as one of the most powerful and feared Royal Vampires in existence. The only ray of light in her endless brutal existence is the reincarnation of her human lover, Aurora. For the past 20 centuries the blue-eyed beauty's love added a gentle touch to the otherwise deadly veneer of the Vampire Queen. As protector and lover, she passionately loved her mortal partner and jealously guarded her existence.

But it all changed when her lover's birth coincides with the resurfacing of a cunning and elusive enemy set out to upset the Vampire hierarchy. This though the time the target is not Tahlia...directly, but it does threaten the Vampire Queen's existence.
