Matters of Time, an anthology

Time.

It affects our every decision. We set alarms, celebrate milestones, and perform daily routines.

Eighty-eight years and twenty-two birthdays, there’s a riddle. Five bucks to the person who can puzzle through that one.

We can change almost every aspect of our lives, but time. Its swiftly moving current propels us to an unknown end.

People who feel trapped will do just about anything to free themselves.

This multi-genre collection will thrill and entertain you with tales of characters making choices with their given minutes…until they run out of time.

Maybe you remember where you were when the clocks stopped and the nightmare began.

Contains stories with zombies, mermaids, magic, and enchantment.

Kawartha Lakes Stories, volume 3: Autumn

The third volume of Kawartha Lakes Stories takes readers through the season of rot and ruin. It’s a season of change, when nature lets go, a season of abundance, when nature blankets her secrets in bold colours.

An all new anthology of stories set in Kawartha Lakes during the most colourful season. This anthology takes readers on a journey of unexpected and innovative views of the city of Kawartha Lakes using a mix of genres, ranging from sweet romance and contemporary fairy tale to soft horror and edgy humour. With settings including Bobcaygeon, Burnt River, Sturgeon Lake, and various locations between, Kawartha Lakes Stories are at once startling and familiar, as local writers explore some of our everyday places through a variety of voices and styles.
