|The Art of Raising Hell by Thomas Lopinski|
“There are some people that walk around on two feet and others like me that run on all four.”
To most people, that’s a bold statement. I just wish I’d been the one to say it, but I wasn’t. In fact, until a few days ago, I wasn’t even sure what it meant.
Either you’re the type of person who lives within a set of boundaries or the type who knows none.
But life is never that simple, is it?
Newbie Johnson has recently moved to Bunsen Creek, Illinois, when his mother is killed in a tragic car crash. His father does his best to maintain a normal household, but his broken heart is just not up to the task.
Newbie finds solace by hanging out with his three buddies in their clandestine Backroom hideout. Getting into mischief becomes their favorite pastime as they try to follow in the footsteps of Lonny Nack, who has perfected the art of running on all four.

Village children pretend to have his adventurous nature and skills with the axe, while women dream of his kindness and strength. This is a new tale, one you haven’t heard, the story of where it all began.
All Iski wants is to prove to the woman he loves that he can be the man she needs him to be. They are offered refuge in a cottage in the woods beyond the boundaries of their cursed village but the old woman is not what she seems. Accepting her help may cost him more than he is willing to give.
This is the tale of how the boy became the man. The man that would become the Legend, Iski Flare.

What would you do if you found your late great grandmother’s book of shadows, better known as a spell book, and learned that you’re a natural born witch? If you’re 16-year-old Emma McGlinchey, you try a candle lighting spell and recruit best friends Lia and Shar into starting a coven after it works.
Soon the girls cast a glamour spell to make everyone like them at the religious high school where they’re being forced to begin their junior year. It works perfectly on all but a nasty group of zealots who bully Lia and Shar for being a lesbian couple.
Meanwhile, a love spell they cast for Emma to charm the boy of her dreams succeeds, but the guidance counselor comes onto her, too!
The girls attempt to deal with these side-effects using other spells, but will they be able to set things right before catastrophe ensues?
