Into The Game
by C.A.A. Allen
Riff Jenkins is having a bad day. He’s behind on his college tuition and is getting kicked out of his dorm. And if that isn’t bad enough, Riff hasn’t been able to beat the goblin boss in Dungeon Crawl Quest despite months of trying.
When a mysterious package arrives from the recently deceased DCQ developer, Riff finally gets his reward for being one of the game’s top players: a special Grimoire and an invitation to one of LA’s premiere gaming dens.
But the Grimoire is much more than it appears. When Riff syncs it to a computer at the den, he’s virtually transported into the game. And his bad day just got worse, because the company that owns DCQ will be shutting down the servers at midnight if Riff and his band of misfit players can’t beat the goblin boss and save the game.
Oh yeah, and if the servers go down while they’re in the game, they all die for real.

The Cave Maze
by C.A.A. Allen
The Wizard Talhoffer stocked the underground labyrinth with a murderous assortment of beasts, traps, gold, and personal magic items worth dying for. And treasure hunters did die for them.
Not Raff Jenkins. He planned to survive.
After losing the questing university scholarship, sword whiz Raff takes drastic measures to earn tuition. With the help of his hustling cousin Dread and a party of rag-tag locals…he heads into the cave maze as a newbie. What he discovers inside is more than just treasure, bloodthirsty hags, or crotch-masticating hellhounds – he learns that a link to his past is tied to the fate of his kingdom.
Will he return in time to pay off the death-threats awaiting him at home? Will he return at all?
