As I made my way to my master’s chambers, I paused from a top outer hallway and peered down to the open space of the main greeting hall. Never had the palace been under such duress. Men with slings and arrows hanging from chandeliers; men fighting with degas, boughs, bloody axes, stones and large branches, using dead bodies as shields; men with severed limbs using whips and chains; men with torches on horseback in the dining rooms; men fighting with wheelbarrows, baby carriers and kitchen cutleries; everyone fighting desperately until they fell upon their ill-fated destination: death.
One of the sling-shooting chandelier dwellers, a young Moudera boy, struck every guard or defenseman he targeted. He couldn’t have been any more than eight years old. He’d been taught Davidian shooting tactics, for he targeted big men and struck them directly between the eyes. Like finger-snapping, the boy decimated ten to twelve unsuspecting victims in a row, using bits of chandelier glass, killing his victims upon impact. He easily claimed more lives than anyone else in the palace, and he could have attained legendary numbers if the young assassin hadn’t died by his own tactics. As blood dripped from his eyes, he pulled out a gory piercing arrow from his back before falling from the ceiling to the floor.

The Adventures of Fawn is a ‘coming of age’ series set in the magical world of Santa’s North Pole! The year is 1849, and legendary reindeer Comet and Vixen have a young daughter, Fawn. In this first book, ‘Til the Last Snowflake Falls’ the young reindeer spends far too many days alone in the stable at Santa’s Village with no friends and nothing to do.
While her parents caution her she’s much too young and inexperienced to go exploring outside Santa’s Village by herself, Fawn disagrees. Declaring, “I want some fun and excitement! I don’t care how dangerous it is!” she begins sneaking out each day in search of friends, excitement and adventure. She’ll find them all…but also find herself facing dangers like a fierce hungry wolf, a freezing North Pole blizzard, and the treachery of a sea captain capturing animals of the arctic to sell to a zoo in New York City.
Along the way, she’ll also learn some valuable lessons about what’s really important in life. The Adventures of Fawn are filled with fun and excitement for all ages!
It was this collection of tales which prompted him to begin writing The Adventures of Fawn. Through the young daughter of legendary reindeer Comet and Vixen, he’s been able to weave an exciting, colorful, imaginative world which will delight readers of all ages!
Mr. Boy not only hopes you enjoy these tales, but make reading them part of your Christmas traditions, as well.
Two years have passed since mankind faced extinction.

For individual reasons, these men are traveling east, where the fragmented lives of a small number of survivors will soon be decided by the choices of a corrupt few.
Simon Kalispell and Brian Rhodes are not yet aware, but the strength that resides inside them will soon be tested, and destiny will call for their fates to be forever intertwined.

Guest Post Request For Avenue Books – Does Hillary’s and Trump’s faith matter?
While a candidate’s professed faith may shine some light on their character, a better indication of how they will guide the reins of government are his or her actions over respective careers. It’s true that religion has always been an important part of the American character. However, our Founding Fathers were very much afraid of the active intervention of faith in governance that they saw in Europe leading to centuries of wars and strife. They believed that faith can take many forms, but that people of faith can work to build bridges or to create strife. That’s why they fought so hard to separate church and state and keep faith as a private matter. They did not want America to follow the example of religious wars in Europe.
Do candidates’ religious beliefs matter? It’s interesting that every four years, candidates trot out their religious devotion and then move on to act out their lives as they see fit. Those who profess and even act upon the most devout religious beliefs can still promote policies that will disadvantage voters who can be whipped up to support them strictly on religious grounds. That’s a dangerous way to vote. It leaves voters open to being manipulated into voting against their own best interests. Voting for a candidate who backs your beliefs on abortion yet promotes policies that will make your job disappear isn’t really supporting your best interests.
I would argue that a candidate’s character matters more than their religious beliefs or their faith when it comes to guiding this country. Look at what they do, not just what they say.
