Matt Hawkins isn't a wizard. He's not a werewolf, either. He doesn't talk to ghosts, though he thinks he might like to see one some day. Matt's just an ordinary, everyday kind of guy. So why is the oldest and meanest vampire in town suddenly gunning -- or should that be 'fanging'? -- for him?
Maybe it's his social skills, or lack thereof -- but it wasn't his fault he lost his pants in the middle of the mall. Perhaps it's because he's on nickname basis with the ghoul in a local cemetery.

And somehow Matt has to find the time to see his therapist about that little temper problem he has...

Bad Decisions 6... because every horror starts with one bad decision
Amelia Taylor picked up the battered copy of 'Escape Your Fear Bubble' by Reverend P. Radcliffe, from her local charity shop. Initially sceptical of firstly having a fear bubble and secondly escaping it, she had read the book from cover to cover... twice. It was then she had realised that her life consisted of work, housework, and pleasing her family and boyfriend. All of which was confined within ten-mile radius of her East London flat. The realisation had hit her almost like a physical blow to her stomach.
Consequently, Amelia decided to take control of her life, to escape the microcosmic bubble that her life had become and spend her first holiday alone in the Old Barn cottage, Ashdurton, Devon.
Unfortunately, Amelia did not realise that Ashdurton is a place to be avoided at all costs, an error of judgement she may pay for with her life.

Tessa is a giant.
Well, she's almost a giant.
Before she could reach the usual ten feet of most giants, a fey queen offered her a potion to stunt her growth.
And it worked.
Now she's living her best life. Yes, she's six and a half feet tall, but she's passing as human, and she landed her dream job as a lawyer.
Best of all, she's dating her sexy new co-worker who doesn't mind that she's an inch taller than him, or that she's a virgin (not that she plans on keeping that label for long).
But all of her perfect plans for the future are thrown into jeopardy when the fey queen who controls her potion, forces her to defend a troll in a murder case who uses glamor to appear human.
Now, she'll have to carefully maneuver her way around a series of lies to keep her job, her secret, and her boyfriend.
