Dark Skies – 447 words

At night, the city is made of light, but it’s much too bright for Laney’s constellation-loving papaw, who isn’t used to living in the city. When Papaw’s memories become as hazy as the city sky he decides to give up stargazing. Laney is determined to help him rediscover what he loves most — his family and the stars. Includes backmatter about Dark Sky Parks. 

Aloff the Small – 550 words

As an apprentice Wizard, Aloff is always stuck gathering ingredients, instead of casting spells. When he comes across an injured girl in the woods, he sees the chance to prove himself… until the spell goes awry. Forced to flee for help, Aloff must find a heap of humility, a pinch of apology, and a cup of courage to own up to his mistake and set things right.
