Scarlet Minor and the Twin Pikes of Nebo

Scarlet Minor and the Twin Pikes of Nebo

The boy Scarlet Rosendale and his parents, Alice and Thomas Rosendale, had narrowly escaped their home at The Nook, an inn nestled in the harbor to welcome seafarers with a clean bed and hearty food. Without the help of four close friends, Scarlet would by now be imprisoned on the Renegade as a slave to be tortured and killed to break the Curse of Bodiaka. Watching the gulls swoop low over the water in search of fish, Scarlet wondered if his friends Jeffey, Frankin, and Domiq were safe. And had his lifelong harbor pal Skimpy been able to escape the revenge of Ambioca for helping Scarlet and his family get away? Scarlet hoped his friends had not come to harm from the deadly pirate crew of the Renegade, the ship that had formerly belonged to his great grandfather and was rightfully his to claim one day. Thus continues The Scarlet Minor Chronicles, a story of adventure, true love, greed, and corruption spanning five volumes: Scarlet Minor and the Renegade Scarlet Minor and the Twin Pikes of Nebo Scarlet Minor and the Crossed Blades Skull Scarlet Minor and the Last Atlantic Fleet Scarlet Minor and the Isles of Black Gold

Dissonance in A Minor

Dissonance in A Minor

Rainn never meant to fall in love, and definitely not with a meth addict. Living in the alley is dangerous, but she’s found the beauty in having nothing to lose. It’s also provided her the focus to single-mindedly pursue her only dream. Though controlling her wild bandmates is an unrelenting struggle, Rainn knows they’re close to breaking out of their dive bar and into the real music scene. But Jaselle is the only one who doesn’t see Rainn as the homeless girl. Jaselle’s ability to look past the ripped clothes and into the meaning of Rainn’s lyrics makes her worth the emotion Rainn has trained herself not to feel. But as Rainn is coming out of her emotional coma, Jaselle is falling into numbness, desperation, and dependence on the drug that’s taking everything from her. Rainn already lost her brother, Michael, when he died of asphyxiation from huffing butane. She thinks she already knows this road. Hoping to succeed where she failed before, Rainn devotes herself to saving Jaselle. But the drug is smarter than she thinks, and soon she’s faced with adversity she could never have prepared for, putting both their souls and lives on the line.

Hitting A Walk-Off Homer Was The 2nd Best Part Of Minor Leaguer’s Day

Hitting a walk-off home run for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays’ Double-A affiliate) was just the beginning of third baseman Andy Burns’ memorable day. Shortly after the game-winning homer on Sunday, Burns took his girlfriend to a beach 45 minutes away from the stadium and proposed.

She said yes, of course.

“Once I hit home plate, one of my buddies said, ‘Now you’ve got to go propose.’ That’s 100 times bigger than any game could ever be,” Burns said, via
