Ghostly Intentionsstarted out as a haunted house story….with an elf, and a mage. Horror fantasy. Conventional wisdom says “don’t cross the genres”. A little like Ghostbusters, you aren’t supposed to cross the streams, but I can’t help myself. I love fantasy, and horror (both psychological and the monster of the week kind) are some of my favorite kinds of stories. So of course I mixed them together. It is a stand alone, with the potential for a series some day, but not in the works currently. And this weekend it is free.
If you read Ghostly Intentions please take a moment to give it areview on Amazon. The best way to get new readers to take a chance on your writing is if it has reviews. Thank you so much for helping me in this way. And remember you can get everything I’ve written in KU as well.
A long time ago I had a silly idea about a self fulfilling prophecy. I wrote Prophecy By Barlight soon afterward, and it’s still one of my favorite stories. This little touch of comedy has a different feel than the rest of my books, but that’s why I find it so charming.
On the opposite end of my writing you’ll find the thiller-esk type of story. The things that go bump in the night, or chase you in your nightmares. But Footprints isn’t really about the monsters outside. Instead it’s about the demons inside of us.
Both short stories are free this weekend. They are short reads, but I hope you find them to be interesting.
Amazon Prime day was just last weekend, but they didn’t stop everything. I just found out today that they are giving away three months of Kindle Unlimited for absolutely free for three months. You have to cancel after the three months or get charged $10, but there is no obligation to keep your subscription after the three months.
If you have a phone, tablet, computer, or any other Android or Apple device, you can read kindle books wherever you are. And the authors still get paid, so it’s great for everyone involved.
Also, my books are in KU so if there is one you’ve been thinking about reading the next three months have you covered. From litRPG to fantasy, and all the short stories in between.
I’m slowly pulling all of my short stories out of KU. I have a few reasons for that. First, the people using KU seem to like my novels more than my short stories. The biggest reason I used KU was for the free days so that I could advertise the free books and sometimes people would also pick up my other books. Secondly, I am getting closer to releasing my litRPG books. I think I’m going to be going wide with those books because it makes more sense, and I’m also worried about all the authors who have been having their accounts banned for “out of the ordinary activity.” I’d rather just not have that problem, and since it seems to be hitting litRPG authors the hardest I’m not willing to risk it with a brand new series, especially one I love this much.
Maybe I’m being a little paranoid, but that’s okay. The lovely thing about self publishing is that I can change my mind later down the road and try something different.
So, for now, I am using up all the free days available for my short stories. Here they are for this weekend:
