Peter wheezed. “I can’t believe I just did that.”
Luca rolled onto the square yard’s swept stone. His hipbone and elbow were bruised, but he imagined it didn’t even compare to what Peter was feeling right now.
“I told you it was a bad idea.”
Peter rolled onto his back, a constant drizzle of steady rain mixed with the blood pouring from his nostrils in dark greenish tracks. He touched the back of his hand to the gore, nose scrunching in a wince. And then he yawned like the pain was gone.
“Well don’t rush to ask if I’m okay, Luca.”
“You just had to try it. You just couldn’t let it go. I told you that flying takes skill. I told you that you can’t just pretend your way through some things. We’re lucky we didn’t drop clear out of the sky the second you took off.”
“You know, I hear that you’re mad, and all I have to say is that no one told you to go along with my idea. If you felt that strongly about it, you should’ve said something.”
Luca almost punched him. “You told me to go along with your idea.”
“So admit that you had a little bit of fun and I’ll take you for another spin.”
“I didn’t have fun.” Luca rubbed the bleeding cut on his chin. “Actually, right around now is when I start to hold you responsible.”
Peter writhed in feigned agony. “Oh, the burden.”
Luca told himself he found nothing intriguing about this impishness. “I hate you.”
Title: Cry Wolf
Author: Greta Stone
Genre: M/M Urban fantasy
Everything you know is a lie.
Sly fox, misanthrope, and resident comic nerd, Peter, has earned his nickname as the Boy Who Cried Wolf. He’s surrounded by chaos. It doesn't matter if Peter has angelic intentions or diabolical plans—mass pandemonium will ensue. When he mimics the howl of a long-lost friend, the consequences are disastrous.
With no recollection of his past, the wolf, Luca, remains hidden in the shadows. Otherwise, he'll have no future. But when someone steals Luca’s howl and forces him to investigate, he ends up stranded with a mouthy fox who insists they were friends once upon a time.
The Underwood is a dangerous place.
They have two choices: work together or die.
Experience the timeless story of friendship, love, and loss in a Gothic, realistic retelling of your favorite childhood classics, Aesop's fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf and David P. Mannix's classic novel The Fox and the Hound.

Get a book and cozy up on the couch with a rude mug!
Nothing beats reading with a warm cup of coffee or tea. This is precisely a horde of gremlins ransacked Granny’s kitchen and stole all her mugs. Each one is inspired by a different character in the book, and signed by the character.

Elderstone Keys – What’s the big deal?
There is a house in New Gotham that is rumored to be haunted. No one has lived in it since the Great Depression, and no one can recall what its last occupants looked like, what they did for a living or where they went. Only one is fated to enter and learn its secrets. Anytime I host a contest, I give away keys to Elderstone. The person who collects ten of them is fated to own the house.
