Episode 1

The Author’s Tome:

“Well Laura, I haven’t heard you give any suggestions. What would you do given that we were stuck in an interdimensional limbo zone with nothing to do but sit and talk about the eccentricities of the greater multiverse?” Alicia brushed her long, unbound hair out of her eyes and behind her ears. She began regretting her decision not to learn how to style her own hair.

“Uh... we could go kill ourselves again. Though to be honest, the constant re-spawning’s kinda starting to give me headaches,” Laura replied. Her hair was comfortably brushed and tied to stay out of her face; perhaps Alicia should swallow her pride and ask her for a lesson; separation from her servants was taking its toll on her vision. “So anyway, I was still getting used to this whole interdimensional travel thing when I stumbled on this.” Laura dropped a colossal book, at least three feet thick, on the table.

“Is that the complete, un-bastardized Bible?”

“Nah, it’s called the Author’s Tome. Apparently it’s what the Omnipotent one one uses to jot down His thoughts before using His cosmic powers to decide what happens to us in our lives. That time you got infected with that awful disease? Right here. That time my dad got shot? Scheduled down to the minute.”

“Is that right?” Alicia said.

“It’s filled with detailed logs of all the various alternate dimensions and their denizens He’s created besides ours. Like this one where Rick is my son, I’m a boring middle aged cop, and you’re a psychopathic whore who sleeps with her dad. Oh, and you also did it with your brother at some point in here...” Alicia furrowed her eyebrows.

“I am psychopathic but I’m not that...”

“It’s labelled The Party Scandal: Draft 1A. Whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean. Ooh, how about this one where I’m basically Rambo and single handedly destroy every Islamic terror cell in the world alongside a handsome Israeli Mossad agent and save the President’s wife and kids? Multiple times. And I hook up with... dammit, why couldn’t I have been born into The Party Scandal: Draft 1C?”

“Probably because being an insufferable demi-god would have gotten boring very quickly. Let me see this...” Alicia snatched the book and flipped a few pages. “Well, in one universe, which The Author hasn’t bothered labelling, the two of us are gun toting magicians of some sort. Not only is the portrayed marksmanship completely impractical and implausible, I do not know how to use guns that well.”

“Huh, no wonder you’re always inventing ridiculous gadgets to fight people.” Laura took the book back and flipped through the pages. “So, you up for reading some of this?”

“What else are we going to do? We’re stuck in an interdimensional hub for The Author’s entertainment.”

“Beats being turned into a foppish, lovesick Mary Sue like most of the fanfiction section,” Laura quipped. They both shuddered.

“You make a strong case.”

Charlie_8472: Recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give this a read. As a hobbyist blacksmith, the blurb certainly caught my attention. I found the sentence about them drinking, dancing and fighting a strange combination of activities, perhaps a reflection of the writer’s personality and humour. Howeve...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Laraine Smith: You are a true artist! You should do this for a living! I love the imagery here! It is magical! You are magical!

Alisha Banks: You have me hooked! I immediately upon finishing the first book had to start the second. It is a captivating story and I can't wait to finish the other two book! I will definitely be recommending this book to others to read!

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care.The protagoni...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...
