Kissing Johnny | Alanna Rusnak
Fan Fiction


When Elizabeth Grace must rise to the calling of a bridesmaid's duty, she finds herself trapped in Suite 17 with the groomsmen, an object of desire to the inebriated fiancĂ© of her best friend, Morgan. Her only means of escape is to shut herself into the closet with hopes she'll be forgotten in the throes of the rowdy bachelor party. Unexpectedly, she realizes she is not alone but huddled in the dark with a stranger—a man with a soft voice; smoky, fluid, and kind. The night does not being the way she expected, nor does it end in a way she would have ever dreamed. Will she remain hidden? Will she be honest with Morgan about the behaviour of her fiancĂ©, Peter? And who is the mystery man, comforting her in the darkness.

Could the worst moment of her life become a dizzying and powerful romance?

It will take less than twenty-four hours for her to find out.

POETRY:

Arguments With Mortality | Hannibal Lecture
Poetry
Released March 2018


Hannibal is a prolific and fast-rising young, Canadian poet. He cut his teeth writing and reading for those late-night/early-morning, pill-popping drunks who hung around his old pad—but has since found a larger audience, taking his writing online. In so doing, Hannibal has come to the attention of thousands of new fans—including acclaimed, printed publications; and has even drawn the eye of several of his own musical and literary heroes. Drawing inspiration from real life—whether it be those rare and covetous joyous moments, the absurdities of inane convention, or the harrowing ordeals that plague the human condition—Lecture speaks to all these, and is thus a renewing force; bringing interest and credibility back to a noble medium, now seemingly relegated to haunted, dusty old shelves of stale libraries. In spite of his success and ascent through the highly competitive, dime-a-dozen, Thunderdome of professional writing, this young poet from British Columbia retains a strong sense of humility and self-awareness, evident in his prose—in poems that speak directly to the readers, no matter whom; for Hannibal Lecture is a poet of the streets, inspired by those people he observes there.
