The first story, Freya, is a 500 word flash fiction piece that tells the tale of the Norse Goddess Freya and her fabled necklace, Brisingamen.
To kick off the release of this collection, here’s an excerpt:
“Freya,” she heard a voice whisper. “Freya!”
She bolted awake; surprised that it was still dark outside her bedroom window. She hadn’t been dreaming that much she knew because fey didn’t possess the ability with which to dream. That was the stuff of human conscience and beings with souls; Freya had neither.
“Who’s there?” she asked into the darkness, afraid that if she turned on the lamp she might scare off whomever it was that was around.
“I am,” the figure said. She squinted her eyes against the darkness, but to no avail, she still couldn’t see anyone.
“What do you want?” she asked.
