Odds and Endings: Fictions Short and Otherwise


Odds and Endings: Fictions Short and Otherwise is Joe DeRouen’s first short story collection, and contains thirteen all-new tales of magic, murder, and mystery. The compilation includes one novella and eleven short stories, one of which takes place in the Small Things universe and involves some of your favorite characters.
In A Stranger with Your Hair, we’ll meet Parker McCain, a womanizer who’s always looking for the perfect partner. He’ll get all that and more when he makes a certain wish. Speaking of wishes, The Wish shows exactly why you should be very careful when you hold someone’s heart in your hands, while Mommy’s Favorite illustrates what can happen when a mother’s love goes too far. And in Merryland, we’ll spend time with Zara Boone, a woman who gets far more than she bargained for when she inherits her dead grandmother’s house.

These are just a few of the tales that await you in Odds and Endings! Want to read one of the stories for free? Check out the highly-rated Mommy’s Favorite on Wattpad!
