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, but sometimes the first idea just doesn’t work when the actual writing starts. That’s when, as a writer, you have to go with what works, and not keep yourself restrained by the original plan.

I hope you enjoy Reflection. Next month, I return to the world of the Undying Empire with a story I actually wrote in 2015, and is the longest short story I’ve written yet.

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 request that wanted a new take on something that’s been done a million times before.

So I thought…vampires have been done to death (ha!).

Echoes isn’t a normal vampire story by any stretch. But it came into my head already written, and I just needed to type it out.

I hope you enjoy.
