    Summary

    When bookshop owner Esther Fell invited mysterious author AJ Crowley to give a talk on her new novel, Call It Good, she hoped for a chance to meet an author she admired and to sell some books.

    When Crowley sent off a caustic response to the bookseller, she hoped to have the invitation rescinded to get her publisher off her back so she could go back to grading papers, yelling at her plants, and glaring at the rough draft of her next book.

    Neither expected it to blossom into a lively correspondence, nor to find a new friend...or maybe more.

    Summary

    “My true love will have hair the color of yellow apples,” and Jack Zimmermann will take a bite from the forbidden fruit, juice running down his chin. “My true love will be exactly five feet and six-and-a-half inches tall,” and he will chew a leaf from a tree of that same height. “My true love will be as sweet as sugar and sharp as lemon,” and he will drink half a glass of Great-Aunt Cathy’s lemonade, waiting until the last dregs of sugar hit his tongue. “And if a single one of these things is not to be, then let it be known—my true love shall not be he.”

    (He knows in his bones that this spell won’t ever come true. After all, his true love isn't real, and if he’s not real, then the curse can’t take him. That’s the whole point.)

    --

    Or, a Practical Magic AU. Wherein Jack Zimmermann must deal with family curses, hockey legacies, accidental manslaughter, Kent Parson’s obstinate death wish, and a snarky Southern kitchen warlock who won’t mind his own damn business.

    “How kind of them to restrain themselves for all of three minutes,” John replies...

     

    (Josh and John get outed. Feelings ensue.)

    Summary

    Josh stares at John from the hostess’ chair of the ship’s deck the British embassy pretends is a dining table and tries to decide if he’s receiving the world’s most oblivious breach of etiquette or its most blatant declaration of romantic intent.
