A boy risks his life to save some very special children in this fantasy adventure rife with “moments of real beauty and mystery” (Kirkus Reviews), set amidst the rich backdrop of Renaissance Venice.

In Renaissance Venice, the secrets of glassblowing are guarded jealously. Renzo, a twelve-year-old laborer in a glassworks, has just a few months to prepare for a test of his abilities, and no one to teach him. If he passes, he will qualify as a skilled glassblower. If he fails, he will be expelled from the glassworks. Becoming a glassblower is his murdered father’s dying wish for him, and the means of supporting his mother and sister. But Renzo desperately needs another pair of hands to help him turn the glass as he practices at night.

One night he is disturbed by a bird—a small falcon—that belongs to a girl hiding in the glassworks. Soon Renzo learns about her and others like her—the bird people, who can communicate with birds and are condemned as witches. He tries to get her to help him, but discovers that she comes with baggage: ten hungry bird-kenning children who desperately need his aid. Caught between devotion to his family and his art and protecting a group of outcast children, Renzo struggles for a solution that will keep everyone safe in this atmospheric adventure.

Andrea Tuppens
Stretched Twice as Much Volume Three: Five Backdoor and Front Door Explicit Stories


How does this story sound to you?


The Call Girl Mistake (When Three Men Took Me!)

A Rough and Reluctant Younger Woman Backdoor and Front Door Explicit Story by Andrea Tuppens


When the man showed up naked in the hotel room bathroom and saw me in the bath, he thought I was a prostitute his friend had hired.  Before I could really react, he was in my mouth!  It was such a strange and crazy situation, and I felt like a prostitute for not correcting him. I really felt like one when suddenly other men joined in!  I had only just arrived in the city, and I certainly never expected to have an adventure like that before I even checked into the dorms. Hell, I never expected any of my college adventures would get as far as a gang taking me and giving me an experience taking my mouth, my front door, and my backdoor and the same time!


That’s just one of the stories you’ll find in this collection where one hole filled is never enough.  Click to get it on your Kindle device and it will be there in seconds!


Warning: This ebook contains very explicit content.  Only mature adults who won’t find that offensive should read this collection.
