The Longest Con

The Longest Con

My name is Michaelbrent Collings. This is my story.



Larry Correia. Kevin J. Anderson. D.J. Butler. Orson Scott Card. Mercedes Yardley.


Would you like to know – I mean, REALLY know – what they’re doing when they go to those fancy comic-cons? Because it ain’t just writing.


See, every year, thousands of people attend comic-cons dressed as monsters.
Of course, you probably already knew that.


But did you ALSO know that…


every year, thousands of MONSTERS attend comic-cons dressed as PEOPLE.


Sure. Nothing could POSSIBLY go wrong there.


Luckily, the con organizers have placed Wardens throughout the conventions. These undercover supernatural troubleshooters are tasked with stopping mayhem before it starts . . . or solving the murders after they happen.


I’M MICHAELBRENT COLLINGS: author of this book, and one of the Wardens. My job is to go to the cons, where I sell books, make fans, and kill the occasional monster.


It’s not just me, either. Those authors I told you about, and even more . . . you’d never guess what many of your favorite authors are REALLY up to at the conventions.


Luckily, though, you don’t have to guess.




And get ready to have . . . your . . . mind . . . BLOWN.*


* Disclaimer: your mind may or may not be blown.

Peter & Wendy: A Tale of The Lost

Peter & Wendy: A Tale of The Lost

Eve is the girl who has nothing.
She never knew her father. Her mother is an alcoholic. She goes to one of the roughest schools in the country, and every day there is a study in torment: she’s been slashed with knives, burnt with cigarettes butts, and worse. Her life is one of constant fear, constant pain.
Until HE comes.
On the day the most handsome guy Eve has ever seen starts coming to her school, she somehow knows everything is going to change. And it does. He sweeps her off her feet. He makes her feel beautiful. He makes her feel loved. He makes her feel… SPECIAL.
The only problem is that he wants to murder her.
Because he is a vampire. A vampire named…
Eve is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Wendy, the first human girl Peter ever fell in love with, and who fell in love with him… right before he killed her.
Peter wants make Eve his own as well – to give her his heart, make her fall in love with him, then drink her blood as he has vowed to do to every girl born of the Wendy line. And Peter he is a near-invincible creature of super-human strength, inhuman cunning, and ageless desire. He has marked her as his, so his she will be, body and soul.
Eve’s only hope lays with James Hook, vampire killer and sworn protector of the Wendy line.
Like Peter, James has lived a long, long time in the shape of a young man. But where the Pan lives a life of dangerous pleasure and beautiful death, Hook survives in a world of scars and shade. His face and body have been slashed and crippled, and still he continues: he will protect Eve however he can, whatever the cost.
But Eve isn’t sure she WANTS to be protected. Because for the first time, Peter Pan may actually be falling in love. For the first time, Eve has found not one but two people who fight for a place in her heart.
For the first time, Eve is on the verge of truly becoming one of The Lost…
