Hexes & Heroes (Issue 12)

Welcome to this quarter's issue of Indie Bites! It's packed full of six exclusive short stories from indie authors on the themes of Hexes & Heroes, plus an interview with indie author Ceril N. Domace.

This issue features the following short fiction:

- Hex Me Once by Adie Hart 

- Soul Purpose by Zoe Shakes 

- Adventures in Gardening and Other Uses for Fire-Breathing Begonias by Ceril N. Domace 

- You Can't Go Back by Josie Jaffrey 

- The Hesitant Hero and the Very Vexing Hex by Ella T. Holmes 

- In the Moon's Eclipse by Amara Lynn

In this issue we have heroes both valiant and reluctant, and hexes both life-changing and ridiculous. Sorcerers and minotaurs mingle with mermaids and werewolves as we explore the burdens of heroism (and the joys of hexing).

Our six stories this quarter are a truly varied spread, and in these pages you’ll find classic adventure, urban fantasy, sapphic mythology, romantic comedy, pensive fairy tales, and more.

So let’s get heroic. There’s plenty here to sink your teeth into.

About our featured author

Author Ceril N Domace

Ceril N Domace is an accountant, the owner of an improbable number of cloaks, and a dedicated dungeon master.

As a lover of fiction works great and small, Ceril has been reading age-inappropriate fiction since her father failed to pull The Silmarillion from her grubby little fingers at age five. As a grown-up accountant, her spreadsheet compiling gives her plenty of time to make plans for a fantastic world that isn’t plagued by balance sheets… and also has dragons.

On the rare occasions she manages to free herself from an ever-growing and complex web of TTRPG, Ceril enjoys taking walks and griping that all her hobbies are work in disguise.
