Free Fiction – The Broken Temple of Yinak

My first Kaus Kagunvar story is now up! After editing, it actually came down in word count a bit, so I just missed the technical definition of novella by about a thousand words. But, at just more than 16,000 words, it’s pretty darn close. And more important than the word count is that I’m veryContinue reading “Free Fiction – The Broken Temple of Yinak”

Free Story – Springtime

I tried to write a positive, uplifting story. I really tried. But there’s been something about March this year that has my thoughts taking a dark turn. This month’s free story is called Springtime. It’s not what you might expect from the title, though it is the story that was in my head and neededContinue reading “Free Story – Springtime”

Free Story – Inheritance

This month’s story has a great deal of personal meaning to me. March 12th will be six years since my father passed away. At the time, he was experiencing severe dementia and was forced to live in a facility where he could be properly cared for. I wrote this story quite some time ago butContinue reading “Free Story – Inheritance”

Free Story – Forgotten

As I mentioned last week, this month’s story takes place in the Undying Empire, in Ythis itself. Undead are fun to write about, and so I decided to use a character who was mentioned in passing in chapter 13 of The Tower of Dust. Just another way to tie it all together and make YthisContinue reading “Free Story – Forgotten”

Free Story – Unhidden

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and your celebrations brought everything you wished for. This month’s story is one of my shortest so far. It’s called Unhidden, and I have a feeling that this is one character I will revisit at some point in the future. I hope everyone has a happy New Year’sContinue reading “Free Story – Unhidden”

Free Story – Snowfall

This month, I return to the world of the Undying Empire with a new story, Snowfall. If you’ve read The Witch’s Path, you probably don’t have a very good opinion of the Witch Hunters. This month’s story is told from the viewpoint of those who see themselves as the protectors of the citizens of theContinue reading “Free Story – Snowfall”

Free Story – Reflection

Hallowe’en is almost here. So this month I decided to write an actual horror story. Some people considered August’s story, Pages, to be horror, and it certainly has some creepy elements, but Reflection is straight horror. As always, I enjoyed writing this one. It didn’t come out exactly as I had originally envisioned it, butContinue reading “Free Story – Reflection”

Free Story – Echoes

It’s time for a free short story. This one is named Echoes, and it’s a departure from everything else that I’ve published so far. I was looking at writing contests online, not so much to enter as to see what kind of things were being asked for from writers. And I saw a submission requestContinue reading “Free Story – Echoes”
