Synopsis

Peeking into the head of a writer is like opening the door to a room filled with lunatics, villains, and demons—all running amuck while screaming at exactly the same time. In other words, complete chaos. Most days, authors are able to quieten those voices in their head and focus on the ones who yell the loudest. They are able to clutch onto the hand of the most important character and pull them from the fray.
But what happens when they’re all screaming much too loudly? What happens when they all speak at once and they pull the author into the depths of their fiery hell?
Writer’s block, that’s what.
Have you ever wondered why an author jumped into a different story while in the middle of a series you’ve been following or why they are taking too long to release or why they’ve gone genre hopping?
Well, I’ll tell you why.
They’re in hell.
The hell of their own mind.
In most cases, the writer will open new documents and tell portions of these character's stories if only to shut them up for a while. Other times, it’s because the author simply needs to feel useful or productive when their work in progress has come to a screeching halt. Regardless of the reason, you can ask just about any writer in this world and they’ll show you right to a folder on their desktop or a notebook of many scribblings of unfinished stories.
This is our therapy. Our coping mechanism.
And most days, as a reader, you’re only welcome into the world of our stunning, finished works of art we’ve spent months and months agonizing over. The beautiful final product of our blood, sweet, tears, and insanity. Nobody ever lets you in to see what wasn’t ever meant for the world. The imperfect. The incomplete. The utter madness.
Nobody would ever share that with the world, right?
Well, they’d have to be a little crazy.
They’d have to be me.

WARNING: This is a collection of incomplete stories. Some end abruptly, almost as quickly as they started. Others let you sink your teeth in just a bit before pushing you away. A couple will leave you pulling at your hair and cursing for more. In this collection, it’s all about beginnings…there are no climaxes or epic endings. It’s madness I tell you! Enter at your own risk.

My Review

B Sides and Rarities is a collection of unfinished short stories by Author K. Webster. This book gave such a cool look at the inner-workings of when characters begin talking. Each story had its own hooks, heat, and charm, offering some of the best A-to-Z story starters in romance. At the “end” of each story, I let out a slight humph and “oh man”, as my brain was left to wonder as to the characters’ fates. Three of my favorites in this collection were The Claxton Series, Vestige of Nine, and Sweet Vengeance. I honestly don’t know if three stories could be any different and be contained in the same book. Of course, I can’t forget to mention the sweet treat at the end, an excerpt and invitation that shouldn’t be missed. These were great hit-it-and-get-it stories that allowed for numerous tempting escapes.
