With space on the library shelves scarce, the characters of your most beloved genres are banding together into gangs to secure their books' places - and their lives.
The little town of Stonewood sits in the forested hills of East Tennessee. Like most towns, it has a public library, and like in most libraries, a strange and entirely invisible war rages.
Gangs centered around major book genres battle one another for space on the shelves. The more books in their area, the better the chance of their own novel being read. Readership determines life or death, so it's every genre for itself.
But if survival alone wasn't enough, genre rivalries and biases leave some gangs not only fighting for shelf space but pushing their own agendas as well - even within their own groups.
Welcome to Shelf Space. Let the war resume.

Jan. 1 Welcome to 2018! This month's newsletter is short and sweet, but don't let that stop you from reading it.
No special event this month, so let's really use this time to further our gang sub-plots!
" Nothing brings you together like a common enemy.”
― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Valentine's Day was approaching, and Stanton had many a plan for it. Last year, Serena had made him spend it with her more so that he wouldn't pick on innocent couples than because she was invested in the holiday. Stanton had agreed and had embraced his sweeter side to give Serena a nice Valentine's Day.
However, that meant that this year he got to play with other people to his dark heart's content. He wouldn't limit himself only to couples, either. No, the single, the broken-hearted, and the jaded all made wonderful targets in their own rights. Break them or convert them. Those, as always, were Stanton's goals, and he didn't mind which one happened.
To make up for not spending the holiday with her, Stanton had planned an earlier date for her. To make it perfect, though, he had sent his Followers out to find a book that featured magnificent and unique jewelry. They had returned with their reports last night, and Stanton had decided that one in particular sounded worth a personal investigation.
That was what brought him to the mystery section that night. In shadow form, he flew past the shelves, looking for the author's name. The last name began with an R, and he was in the M's still. Soon they gave way to P's. As Q was an unpopular letter, Stanton knew his first search would end soon and then the real one would begin.
