Some recipes are to die for...

 

...so Clive discovers on a night to remember.
From hopeful new restaurant owner, to desperately fleeing demons and all manner of creatures. To survive, he’s going to need some serious help from friends, both old and new as he is portaled into a deeply troubled world full of magic and prejudice. 

There is greatness, there is wonder, yet there is shame and despair in equal measure.

Despite attempts to be virtuous, more often than not it is anger, fear and lust that drive our all too human protagonists.

They are weak in a world full of strength and all they have is their determ… belligerence to stay alive.

While power will come, it will not always come easy.

Welcome, to the God of the Feast.

Chapter Schedule: one chapter per day, Monday to Friday.

Superworld

Superworld
by Benjamin Keyworth

678 pages

Matt Callaghan is in trouble. In a world where everyone has superpowers, he's got squat, and has spent the last five years faking being clairvoyant just to avoid getting caught. Unfortunately, Matt's lies have started to catch up to him, and when a desperate bluff backfires he'll need every ounce of cunning, conning and juvenile delinquency to stay undetected and alive.

Jane Walker is trouble. In a world where everyone is powerful, Jane stands alone and apart, hated for her ability to copy abilities and atrocities far beyond her control. But fate is a fickle friend, and a chance encounter soon finds Jane hurtling towards her lifelong dream - or prejudice, humiliation and a violent, painful death. 

Unbeknownst to them, Matt and Jane’s paths are inextricably intertwined, and as each struggles to find their place an unseen force will draw them ever forward – closer and closer to a secret whose existence threatens not just their lives, but the fate of the entire world.

A loving homage to and twist on the superhero genre, Superworld is a fun, subversive story about identity, empathy, connection and courage which has been called “very entertaining and creative” and “an absolute pleasure” by readers, and "completely unreadable" by the author's blind grandfather.

Life is rough. Jobs are non-existent. And far too many people live in poverty in the real world and can only find work online in VR worlds. And it's getting worse. The old internet is unusable and hacked to pieces. The new system needs AI to run things, but most of them are destroyed. Now everyone is scrambling to get into the GENESIS Engine, as it becomes the new global market place

Everyone wants a piece of the new game. The guilds are competing to be the first to find the dungeons and kill the biggest monster. The corporations are claiming land and putting in their online market places. Ozzy and his friends just want a paycheck.

Four friends find they are locked into five year contracts as virtual serfs in a small village, and can't go adventuring at all to gain money and buy their way to freedom. They don't have many choices. They can work as a blacksmith, barmaid and shepherd for all those years....or they can cheat and find ways they can take advantage of the system.

When they give you a mob and not a sword, you have to find the loopholes and change the rules.

The Trickster's Tale 2: Gnomes Don't Rule!

The Trickster's Tale (...)

538 pages

Be careful when demanding reparations from gods. They rarely own up to their mistakes.

Due to a goddess's shortsighted error, Perry finds himself transported to a distant Universe with new proportions and a different identity. Instead of cowering before the deity, he demands she opens a portal home or provides reparations for him and his bereaved family. Unfortunately, standing up for himself doesn't earn Perry respect. Instead, she curses him with cowardice, limiting his combat and magical potential. 

Little does the goddess know that nothing can stand in the way of Perry's sheer will. If brute strength and arcane might won't get him the justice he desires, wit and creativity will. 

Perry's first target? A goblin shaman. Then, the world.

And so begins, the bard's ballad.


Posting 5 times a week from Monday to Friday!

Bard's Ballad takes place in the same extended Universe as my other story, The Houndsman. It's set on a distant 'disk', though. As a result, the magic system is unique in comparison and has a harder LitRPG system. While the story utilises stats, it doesn't take them seriously and occasionally makes fun of regular LitRPG mechanics.

This story is co-authored by J Pal.
He originally wrote it as The Halfwit Halfling but got tired of number-heavy LitRPGs.
I've taken over the story-boarding and the tale uses names/locations from the old story but not the same plot progression.
I dropped the prison break theme and have given the book a proper villain (a goblin shaman). As a result, the story shouldn't be mistaken as a slice of life despite the protagonist's combat limitations. 
Perry uses wit to overcome challenges instead of brawn or arcana.

“Y-y-you’re the heir of Reyes Group?” Ian managed to stutter out.

“Yes. And I would prefer no one in Mor Co. figured it out. If I know Marco’s efficiency by the time we get back to the office my appointment as an assistant to the President of Mor Co. will be announced. At the same time all business registrations of Mor Co. will be moved to my name. All the directors will be informed of this but no one else.”

Camilla and Ian nodded in understanding.

He feared none but himself. As a human, Elias walked a cruel path. His path only got crueller as he became a demon.

Born as the son of the most powerful man in the continent, but lived a life no worse than a slave. His only friend being solitude. The further he endured, the further he began to lose his humanity. Even a point came when he lost all his rationality and lived as a senseless demon. But no matter the obstacle. He endured. He learned. He survived. He evolved.

As the rumors of his endeavors spread, many feared him. Many respected him. Many bowed before him.
Nonetheless, Elias continued to walk on his path. The path of a demon.

As time passed, Elias continued to terrorize the world with his evil and devious means.

People deemed him as a threat who could no longer be ignored. Many empires united. They allied, and an all-out war started. But, be it the cruelty of fate or their foolishness, the alliance lost.

Elias stood as the lone survivor, but alas, he loses his life from an unforeseen cause.

But for better or worse, his story still seems to have not ended. Elias gets reborn back when he was young, and the path he walked once, he will walk again, but this time the one who suffers will not be him.

What to expect:
This story is based on the concept of "What if a villain, gets a second chance?". Hence it contains a lot of torture, torment, and inhumanity. Revenge or such feelings do not drive Elias, so it's not a revenge story. There won't be any rape scenes or incest. It's also not a story like that. But expect some cruelty and torture along the way.  Also, it's a slow-paced novel.

In short: A lunatic who terrorized the world with devious power and cruel means gets reborn, this time becoming even more powerful and ruthless.

He remembered that it hurt.

Gaining power hurt.

No one ever warns you about the pain that comes before or after. The blinding torture that racked his body for centuries was nothing compared to losing — well ... everyone.

He supposed he should have known things wouldn’t work out in the end — things rarely do for Gods.
