ADAM JUST WANTS
THE KILLING TO STOP
German WWII soldier Adam Weiss has been sent through a magic portal, and only those in Command know the true mission.
Jerryck has magic ‘accidents’
Because of that he never submitted to the authorities that regulate the use of magic spells. If they ever found out they would not only kill him, but likely also his wife, his sister, and her four children.
Being the King of Brend’s Court Magician makes it difficult to keep a low profile. Even more so when an unfamiliar magician unleashes hostile spells on the kingdom. Searching for that enemy will take him away from the very people he seeks to protect. Leaving the search to others will only allow more destruction.
Come read Spell Caster, the magical companion book to Portal Traveler and see the world from a completely different perspective.
THE EXCITING SEQUEL TO PORTAL TRAVELER
Every story has a moment we’re waiting for—a climactic scene that sends an electric pulse of emotion through us—a moment of catharsis. In the Story Grid Universe, we’ve analyzed hundreds of stories looking for the source of that electricity. And now we’ve gotten to the heart of the matter in what we’re calling the Four Core Framework: A core need satisfied or denied through the change of a core value in a core event that elicits a core emotion.
In this collection of twelve original works of fiction—one for each of our twelve story genres—we showcase the core events that make an audience gasp, sigh, or cry when they experience the emotional release they seek.
This anthology was written and edited by intrepid members of our Story Grid community inspired by the core events of masterworks in each genre. We hope it will encourage writers to explore new ways to improve their craft and captivate readers.
