Special People by Tim Sevenhuysen

Special people have special problems.

Special People is a fiction project about people with special and unusual powers and abilities. But don’t call them superheroes! The stories are action-oriented and humourous, but definitely not what you’d expect from your average “superhero fiction.” From a human cell phone to a man who can conjure bacon out of thin air, these are unique, interesting characters, special . . .

AWAKENINGS

Awakenings never sleeps

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Jan 3, 2013: Kudos to Klitzke! 2.7 years of three well written updates a week, without a break as far as I can tell. This is a serial writer who is in it for the long haul and won’t let her readers down. And rather than going stale, Awakenings gets more interesting with time.

The protagonist—Alex—is a pretty rebellious angel, who somehow manages to not get kicked out [more . . .]
