Title: Saturday on the Bay
Genre: PB (Lyrical)
Length: 504
Author/Illustrator: Amanda Wastrom

In the silent, stone-gray sky, not even the birds are up yet. Boats wait. And the morning wind—wet and cold—dips its fingers into the harbor. In SATURDAY BY THE BAY, four girls wake before dawn, giddy to spend the day on their Dads’ fishing boat. Whether it’s the rushing wind, the flash of silvery scales, or the laughing gulls’ squawks, the girls catch much more than just a fish.

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.
