The Fabric Over the Moon

“A delightful collection of quaint and quirky tales of common people and uncommon creatures in our world and fantasy lands.” Stories come alive at night. They are whispered around dying campfires, by quiet bedsides, under deformed old trees. They might get interrupted by the howling wind, inaudible gasps, or nervous comments, only to be continued fervently once the dust settles again. Why did the girl visit the eerie village? What did the gypsy’s words mean? Can the discovery of a new flower change the world? Stories are supposed to end but they never do. They leave you wondering and longing for more. They live on in your mind, in corners with cobwebs and memories you’ve been suppressing, in recurring daydreams you have while waiting in long lines. They fester and thrive there. They spiral and soar. You wish they would die but they cannot anymore. Once you blow breath into a story, it instantly becomes yours…

In this post-adolescent coming-of-age story, a depressed millennial uses her new and devastating powers to ensure that she will never be lonely (or bored) again. After grappling with her overbearing family, her suddenly ambiguous sexuality, her deep desire for independence, and her growing cynicism, Estella Edgehill suffers an accidental overdose. In the afterlife, she is informed that the Gods of old are retiring, and she has been chosen as a replacement. Upon returning to life, she leaves home and meets the boy and girl of her dreams. Together, the three embark on several misadventures, from a shoplifting spree aided by their burgeoning powers at a futuristic shopping mall, to attending a lavish forest party hosted by hipster ghosts, to an encounter with a student-devouring, spectral Wraith on their college campus. On top of the supernatural alterations in the world, Estella must contend with her attachment to her writing teacher, an aging literary titan whose bitterness is only outmatched by his cruelty, and her attraction to her forty-something-year-old neighbor, who is unhappily married to her husband. Relationships are tough, and growing up is hard to do, even for the Gods.

Teddy Lancaster and the Eye of Naroshi

A world exists inside the minds of all who are aware. Chances are you’ve been there before, but surely you don’t remember.

For dreams are designed to be forgotten in the morning, and you have a real life to live.

The funny thing about real life though is that sometimes the assumed trivial and discarded things can hold the most fantastic opportunities.

The Academy of Zarmore only accepts students with this type of discernment. Follow Teddy Lancaster on his journey to the land outside of time, and discover ‘that which is unseen’.

Meet Astrid V.J.

Astrid is a USA Today Bestselling and Literary Classics award-winning author, social anthropologist, and transformational life coach. She grew up in South Africa and currently lives in Malmö, Sweden (after having lived in many exciting and interesting places) with her husband and their two children. Her South African-German heritage and the experiences of living and integrating into other societies have given Astrid a great deal to think about and process. The training in anthropology has given her the tools to think beyond simple stereotypes and ideological explanations of social interaction, while the understanding she has of the human potential to achieve anything we put our minds to, which underlies her certification as a transformational life coach, allows Astrid to see what is possible and to appreciate the human capacity to achieve success in the face of adversity, no matter the obstacles. Astrid’s parents instilled in her a love for books, and the natural world that we inhabit. This love has led to a deep appreciation of the written word and the desire to contribute as much as she can towards improving the state of the world. Astrid would like to use her expertise and passion for cultures to help us move forward. She writes transformation fiction: incorporating transformation principles in novels, rather than writing another self-help book. This is more than Up-lit. Astrid’s books are intended to be uplifting, but also to provoke thought and help people question the situations they find themselves in, as well as to identify how they themselves can transcend their circumstances. Astrid is very interested in minority group questions, considerations on social standards of beauty and the negative consequences these have and would like to make the fantasy genre accessible to people of non-white, non-Western backgrounds. Astrid feels the fantasy genre has become too restrictive with limited representations of race, ethnicity, and culture, and seeks to explore other paths on this writing journey, incorporating her background in anthropology and psychology to create engaging experiences, which also provide food for thought on the diverse topics she finds most important, such as racism, minority rights, cultural diversity, culture change, intolerance, humanity’s environmental impact and much more.  

Wild Hare (Bargain Book)

Listed by Kirkus Review as one of the 100 best indy books of 2019.      “The world is coming to an end.”      I pushed the oil rags and cigarette butts off the seat of my friend Arne’s old pickup truck and climbed in. He threw the truck into gear, gunned the engine, and smirked. “What’s the point of being a fairy if you can’t wave a magic wand and get shit done?”
     Yeah, I’m a fairy. No, not that kind.
     I let a half mile of clear-cut rumble past the window while I thought about my crappy mood, contemplating the butchered landscape. Back when I was a kid, I used to enjoy the ride to town because the road wound through a mosaic of wetlands and forest and lakes.
      Mostly gone now: the forest, the marshes around the lakes, the moose.
     Yeah, I’m half-human, half-forest spirit from the wild hare clan–what anthropologists call a trickster–and I live by the wild hare code of “feed, fight, fornicate”; except that’s using the nice word for it.
       Maybe Arne had a point. Maybe I didn’t fight hard enough to better this world I so reluctantly belonged to. After all, my personal life was generally OK, so why get into a brawl about shit I couldn’t change?
       What I didn’t know, as the ruined scenery brushed past, was that my personal life would soon go tits up too, and I’d get pushed into fighting in ways I’d never fought before. Lucky me.
