Hot off the Presses
There’s nothing better than discovering a hidden gem. From survival guides to young-adult fantasy to short story collections and mysticism, Unpublished seeks out the unusual, the uncommon, the undiscovered.
Becker Drane’s still got the coolest job in The World, but it’s getting harder and harder to live a normal life outside of The Seems. He’s definitely feeling the strain of being a teenager (complete with mood swings and a newfound respect for sarcasm) and he can’t stop thinking about Jennifer Kaley, the totally cool girl he met during his Mission in Sleep. Things don’t get any easier when a bomb explodes in the Department of Time and Becker is called in to pick up the pieces after a more senior Fixer couldn’t disarm the device. It’s his toughest mission yet, and Becker finds himself going places in The Seems he never knew existed, and meeting people long thought dead. Yep, it’s just another day in the life of Becker Drane. Let’s hope he lives to Fix again . . . .
In A Whole New World, author Michael Wexler takes a foray into philosophy, inviting the reader on a journey into the “meaning” of life itself. Meaning, in this sense of the word, creates a possibility in which the world suddenly becomes malleable, not what we thought it was, and open to creation. When we glimpse that seeing is not believing but the other way around, a whole new world is literally at our fingertips.
Becker Drane knows exactly how The World works.
You know the rain we had two weeks ago, or that nightmare you had last night? Becker Drane can tell you exactly who or what was responsible because Becker works as a Fixer for The Seems. From the Department of Weather to the Department of Time, The Seems is the world-behind-our-World, and it keeps everything running smoothly.
But every so often, something goes wrong.
When a Glitch makes its way into the Department of Sleep, Becker is called in for his very first Fixer assignment and he’s got to get it right. But this Mission is tricky, and his regular Tools aren’t up to the test. If Becker doesn’t find a Fix fast, he just might lose the coolest job ever―and The World will lose a lot more than a good night’s sleep.

About The Book
Not many folks know it, but on the west side of town, behind Big Felix’s Pizza Flavored Ice Cream, and Edna’s Gum Emporium, lives an inventor, Calvin MacBoomboom and his two faithful assistants, Frazzlecat the cat, an Dooley the dog.
