Sumner West is the voice behind the world's number one true crime podcast, West Coast Killers. As the siren of the mic effortlessly delivers the script of another six-figure ad, a shout in the hallway breaks through her studio-grade noise-canceling headphones. A brooding LAPD detective throws open the door that seals her from the outside world, demanding an interview.

Detective Lucas Saba doesn't know much about the twenty-seven-year-old media maven seated behind the microphone. He's not aware of her controversial rise to internet stardom, of the deeply divided Reddit threads debating the murky past of amateur sleuthing's queen. What he does know is that two students were found dead on UCLA's campus, perfectly mirroring the murders of a 1997 double homicide featured on Sumner's podcast, Episode #142: Ruined Bruins.

As Lucas investigates the uncanny connections between recent unsolved murders on his desk and the transcript of Sumner's podcast, the cat-and-mouse game that launched her career-beginning with the unsolved murder of her best friend, Chloe-will cast doubt on the motives of everyone in her inner circle, including the reigning queen of true crime herself.

THE PODCAST is an ensemble murder mystery for fans of Lucy Foley's THE PARIS APARTMENT and listeners of Ashley Flowers' CRIME JUNKIE. With elements of dark whimsy resembling Hulu's ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING, this story explores our morbid fascination with true crime through a cast of deliciously deceptive characters in the world of Los Angeles' influencer culture.

I'm In The Wattpad World?

Wattpad-Where stories live. Solar, a frustrated writer, was teleported to a world of fiction--the Wattpad World. She wonders why she was teleported to another world. There, she met the characters in her work on Wattpad and fell in love with the main character of her ongoing story. She had to stop herself from deeply falling in love with him or else she would be one of the characters in her own story. She also needs to know who it is or who is in control of the situation, or she will not be able to return to the real world. This is a story that takes place in two worlds: the Wattpad world and the real world. This is a story where a writer finds herself in a pretend world made by herself on her own phone. This was a story I made up in my head whenever I felt like fleeing this cruel world; whenever I wanted to get lost in this low-class society. And, of course, I was inspired by W's storyline. This is part of the WORLD OF FICTION series. The other books will be published on Wattpad after this story is completed.

Multiple people, multiple ways

Sometimes things get harder, when people know their feelings TOO well. Which often results in (especially for teenagers) a very confusing time. If you pair that up with many many many personal crisis'... life becomes much harder than one might expect.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~WE ARE BACK TO BASICS! If someone knows me from a long time ago, they'll know I used to make ALL my covers via very bad editing because I didn't have anything better. Well, I have nothing better anymore, so, the cover is going to be that until I get it changed somehow. This'll be POLYAMORY. I will say it at the start, I absolutely hate, when things get stupidly complicated because people can't decide in fanfics, unless it's done well.Welcome to the adventure of me making a story absolutely nobody asked for.
