My short story collection, Lost is now available in eBook and paperback (soon) on Smashwords and multiple other platforms including Amazon.
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.
If you, like me are an avid reader you’ve probably got a to be read pile that keeps on getting bigger. If you don’t have a to be read pile, I’d love to know your secret to being a more productive reader. I struggle to find enough time to read to get through my pile.
Currently, on my to be read pile I have the following:
(in no particular order)
A Game of Thrones (plus the next two books) by George R R Martin
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Throne Of Glass by Sarah J Maas
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier
I have absolutely no excuse as to why they’re still sitting on my bookshelves untouched. It’s probably got something to do with the fact that I do get caught up reading ebooks more than I do paperbacks.
And while I schedule time to write I don’t schedule enough time to read. Sometimes sleep just has to take priority.
I believe the last paperback book I picked up was Rebecca.
But my currently reading pile? Why, that’s a list for another time.
Well, if you enjoyed this blog, drop me a comment with one book on your shelf you haven’t gotten around to reading. I’m always on the lookout for new books to read, even if I haven’t finished reading all the ones I currently own.
