Kirehe Mahono can't decide if she made the right choice. Compared to her sweltering home world, space is...cold. What can dragons even do in the cramped confines of spaceships? At least she knows she can trust Madison and the rest of their ragtag band of fellow escapees. Most of them, anyway.

They'll have to convince a bunch of space pirates to work together.

A warlord, a cruise ship, a splashdown, oh my. Dragons In Chains continues the story begun in Dragons In Pieces, taking Bobby to new places, new depths, and new buffets.
All Bobby wanted was a girl to come home to after a hard day of work. Like the last one said before she left, he was going exactly two places - no and where – and he was happy with that. But somebody had other plans for him. A murder. The Terrorist Watch List. For what? Underage drinking? Things couldn't possibly get worse. Right?
Oh yes, they could.
He wouldn't believe superheroes were real if he wasn't one himself.
Tiny robot dragons send him chasing his humanity and his future, on the trail to discovering his past and a place to call 'home'. If he's lucky, maybe he can get a beer there.

In Writerpunk Press's 6th anthology, we approach world myth and folklore through the lens of science fiction, with a variety of authors and perspectives. As with all previous volumes, profits generated by sales of the anthology go to benefit PAWS Animal Rescue in Lynwood, WA.
In Undercurrents: An Anthology of What Lies Beneath, twenty-three talented authors, including New York Times bestsellers Kevin J. Anderson, Rebecca Moesta, and Jody Lynn Nye, have stood on the shores of their psyches and looked out over the ocean of possibility and wondered “What lies beneath?”
The sea creatures and sea monsters that answered their calls range from a giant kraken that rules the deepest ocean to the smallest puffer fish that creates intricate works of underwater art. Creatures of classic mythology—mermaids, sirens, and sea serpents—swim alongside more unusual beasts—underwater cats and singing whirlpools. These stories dive deep into the fears many of us face, including loss, abandonment, death, and physical, mental, or emotional danger. When the fears we keep buried beneath the surface rise up and threaten to consume, we must make a choice: conquer or be conquered.
This anthology is the fourth volume produced by the alumni of the Superstars Writing Seminar, and all royalties benefit the Don Hodge Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Sixteen authors each offer a tale of connection.

Now genuinely a Spirit Knight, sixteen-year-old Claire wants to know everything about the job. Fate dumps a dragon on her and she only has more questions. She knows how much she needs training and wishes she could snap her fingers to learn everything at once.
Justin can answer Claire's questions, but between his demanding young daughters, his sarcastic horse, and the recent loss of his own mentor, he'd rather just be a Knight. No one told him adopting an apprentice would devour all his free time and dredge up the past.
In this sequel to Girls Can't Be Knights, Claire and Justin face dragons, ghosts, witches, echoes, and memories. Their survival and the fate of Portland may depend on Justin's intellect.
Now that the Spirit Knights' demesne has accepted sixteen-year-old Claire
into the order, she only has to convince all its Knights she belongs. Forced
into a test to prove her worth, she discovers more than anyone wants her to.
Meanwhile, Justin runs around playing janitor. He made some big messes.
Cleaning them up puts him on a new path, one he never imagined his
future could hold. All on Thanksgiving.
In this third installment of the SPIRIT KNIGHTS series, Claire thinks she
knows what must be done to save herself and the world from the plague of
ghosts the Spirit Knights leave behind.
If she’s wrong, there may be nothing left to save.
...Nobody told Claire.
Can she survive proving them wrong?
After 6 difficult years in Portland's foster care system, sixteen-year-old Claire has given up all her dreams. Hope and trust? What are those?
But she'll need both.
Portland has a ghost problem, and it doesn't care about her issues.
Armed with a magical locket, the only thing she has left of her family, will Claire find the strength to accept the help offered by a would-be mentor?
You'll love this heartwarming young adult urban fantasy because finding family is best done in strange places.
Get it now.
That story is found in this book's foreword, but the key line from the story became the title of this anthology. The authors seized upon that line, much like an out-of-control bovine seizing its own halter, and stampeded into the volume you see before you.
This is not just a comedy anthology. Nor is it horror, or romance, or literary, or…well, any one thing. Rather, it is all those things. Each story starts exactly in the same place. But each author immediately leaps from there into their own world. This anthology celebrates the creativity of these authors, because it does not shackle them to a theme. The starting line is the same—the finish line is on other planets, in other times, and in alternate realities.
You’re not going to feel cohesiveness reading this thing. It’s not going to be several stories hitting the same note. But you are going to experience a wider panoply of stories than you would in other anthologies.
And as to what you make of them, or what stories they may inspire in you? Well…that’s your cow.
Claire expects Christmas vacation to deliver an earned respite from thinking, doing, and obeying. She gets to sleep in and play with dragons. Right? Of course not. Ghosts don't care about vacation.
Drew wishes magic could finish high school for him. Who cares about calculus or dangling participles when he can crush mutant bugs with his mind? It can't do much more, though, until he gets off his butt and learns how to use it properly.
In this fifth and final installment of the SPIRIT KNIGHTS series, Claire and Drew find out what happens when they spend three weeks ignoring the obligations of the power at their command and live a normal life.
Spoiler alert: nothing good.
