Sword & Witchhazel
Witchhazel & Sword

The Corwyn Chronicles released an experimental novelette called both, Sword & Witchhazel, and Witchhazel & Sword. Two titles, two covers, two sides of one story!

Decide which of the conjoined tales you’d like to read first—the tale of Pallo, Swashbuckler living in Sword, or the tale of Dinah, Artiste living in Witchhazel. Only once both stories are read will you receive the full scope of what it’s like to live in the twin towns, where whatever happens in Sword, happens in Witchhazel.

Sword Witchhazel
A Goblin's Mind

Doctor Harlow is used to dealing with interesting and unusual patients such as Necia, the unicorn-woman whose compulsion to hoard useless trinkets has brought her a great deal of anxiety–such is an average day for the best therapist in the Skarsgaard Kingdom. However, when a goblin teenager with a healthy imagination comes to visit, things begin to change for Harlow.

Not soon after the doctor discovers an unlikely link between the green-skinned youngster and the other patients do people start to go missing. Time is running out, and Doctor Harlow must discover the truth about the goblin's mind before it's too late.

A Goblin's Mind is J.D. Dresner's debut novella, initially written during the 3-Day Novel Contest of 2013. Set in the world of Corwyn, this tale is linked to other Corwyn Chronicles tales, while remaining a stand-alone story.

A Goblins Mind
You Don't Know Jack

Of all the stories you've read before—stories about warring desert factions, fantastic heists, worlds with no sun, people's consciousnesses getting ripped from their bodies only to be dropped into the bodies of horses, travelling through time and space. . . you'd think you knew a thing or two about the fantastic and the bazaar. So did Emmett Croft. He thought he knew everything. Then he travelled back in time, and that's when he realized: even if you're a know-it-all, the truth is, you don't know jack.

Cover - You Don't Know Jack.jpg

Written by nine people during a team-building exercise, You Don't Know Jack was conceived within one day, and consisted of about 500 words. Now a 17,000 word story, it's both intriguing and thought-provoking (albeit highly-experimental). Proceeds from the purchase of this book will be directed towards a charity of our choosing.

Written by: Kelsie Colville, J.D. Dresner, Erika Hayek, Eric Hutchison, Jason Lemmon, Cindy Lunau, N.J. Portugal, Priyank Shah, & Jessica Vano.
