Title: The Library-nth of the Lost (Feminist and satirical Peter Pan origin story)
Genre: MG
Length: 36,000
Author: Taya Okerlund

Freia is the spare heir of the Gossamer Court, titled Princess, High Born of the Land of Youth, Marchioness of the Flowery Border, etcetera. Her title is a mouthful, but it’s a hollow, meaningless concession. Her brother Peter is the crown prince, but he’ll throw it all away, if he doesn’t ruin the kingdom first. Deep in the Library-nth of the Lost, Gloria loses a part of herself she can’t afford to let go and the consequences are so twisted, they’ll either ignite the court to ruin, or propel her to heights Freia only dreamed of.

Title: The Earth's Queen And The Fake God Who summoned The Zombies.
Genres: Fantasy YA, Mythology
Words: 110,000
Author: Loreto Cintolesi.

2400 year ago, a Buddha student asked his teacher what he thought about superpowers. Buddha answered: To gain super human abilities is a collateral result of meditation, and spiritual development. But the important part is growing, and many people search this path just for the powers. That's why I despise the exhibitionist and hide my own abilities. (Fragment of an old Sanskrit text this author found when learning Yoga and meditation.)

Could you write a book with that? I did. I built a fantasy world doing a crossover of Buddha's words and mythology from all the world for explaining why we believe in the strange legends our grandparents raised us. Of an alternative past where element benders -fire, water, lighting, earth and wind- walked between normal humans and the Earth's Queen ruled them all.
