Those of you who read the first part have spoken, and here it is, part two of THE EDGE OF FINALIA. Again, I'm a little scandalized that we have let a HAWK into our midst, but I will admit ... I find the story gripping.
And now BEARS? I'm scared, but I can't stop reading.
Click on the bear to read chapters 4 - 7.
PB here, temporarily surfacing because my erstwhile assistant Quiche is refusing to do his job. (That good-for-nothing rabbit!)You see, we are publishing here on this website, for the very first time ever, a fabulous new fantasy novel called The Edge of Finalia. Quiche agrees it's a good story but he won't have anything to do with it. Why? The author's name. Delores Hawk. I keep telling Quiche that the name is a pseudonym--he should be familiar with those after all!--but he won't believe me. He's convinced Delores is a real hawk--a bird of prey--who will swoop down and snatch him by his little rabbity ears and fly away with him. (Personally, I think Quiche flatters himself. Even if Delores were a hawk, and I have it on good authority she isn't, I doubt she would be interested in him. He's been eating so many carrots lately he's turning orange again. Hardly appetizing.) In any event, it falls on me to introduce the story. I won't tell you much except that it takes place in a world where dreams are forbidden and every child is supposed to follow the dictates of her personality profile when she turns thirteen. As you might imagine, our young heroine Gemma has other ideas. You can find the first three chapters on our Guest Ghost page. Next week, if I have anything to say about it, Quiche will post a few more chapters. After that, we'll keep posting installments until you are clamoring to finish the book and Old Hawkeye herself is forced to give us the whole thing. Read on. And please let us know what you think. The author wants to hear your thoughts. You are the very first readers of her brand new novel! Secretly, PB

Thanks for sending this in. We can't believe that this hexagon and pentagon and sticks are SO DELICIOUS.
