Veggies Not Included: Tales Of My Triple Digit Weight Loss From The Fast Food Lane

by Christine Leo

Veggies Not Included is the humorous and emotionally raw recounting of one woman’s weight loss journey from fed-up to freedom.

Christine Leo lost 130 pounds following a wakeup call that included a gyno trip from hell, a bridal boutique snub and a Jumbotron screen. The girl who had been picked on and pushed around since primary school decided it was finally time to take back control of her life.

Instead of following the diet paths most frequently traveled, she lost 7 pant sizes by counting calories in her favorite types of fast food (cheeseburgers, burritos, ice cream, cookies, and the like). She has kept the weight off for nearly five years and did it all without ever donning the dieting superhero cape most do. Readers looking for a down-to-earth weight loss perspective and a glimpse of the life after the new body euphoria has worn off will appreciate Veggies Not Included.

Rise Of The Huskers

by Dennis Larsen

The quaint, little resort town of Banff, Alberta, set against the backdrop of majestic mountains and glacier lakes, is being torn apart by Huskers: virally-altered humans acting on deep, carnal instincts. The surviving populace, including Raven Falconer, her roommates, and RCMP Officer Zygmunt Nowicki, battle for resources, their lives, and a safe place to call their own.

Nathan Edwards, self-appointed leader of the Husker band, aggressively leads his group on horrific death-and-devour missions throughout the community, instilling fear among the healthy, and destroying any hope of rescue or survival. Episode Two looks inside the murderous horde, their thoughts, actions and the sense of ‘pack’ that develops, as their numbers grow. The once peaceful Biathlon Olympian controls the egregious Huskers with overblown aggression and a gift for carnage. He rules, trying to fill an insatiable void, temporarily satisfying vulgar urges, while dominating the mob – simply because he can.

As if the girls and Ziggy didn’t have enough to cope with, a new threat emerges, extending an olive branch, tainted with arsenic. Darwin Gladue, visionary and self-anointed chief of a local native tribe, violently takes control of his people and leads them on a desperate errand to restore their tribal lands.

Diminishing supplies, greed, lust and an unstoppable will to survive will pit the three parties against one another, culminating in a spectacular climax of death and ruination, but for whom?
