Looking for some short fantasy to read? May I recommend these?
Trapped on an island with an abusive husband, Selene struggles with her fear of the sea every day. But when her husband abandons her to drown, the mermaids give Selene the power to exact her revenge. How she chooses to use that power—and how she faces her fear—will change her life forever. The haunting “I Sing a Song of Mourning” originally appeared in the Breaking Waves: An Anthology for Gulf Coast Relief charity anthology (Book View Café, 2010).
If you’re looking for something a little more lighthearted, get your oven mitts on “Matchmaker”:
“What does a computer know about love? Have an authentic Gypsy Matchmaker work her magic instead!” The matchmaking magic was passed on through each generation, and my gran, who had raised me from a toddler after my parents died, certainly had the talent.
It wasn’t her fault she’d forgotten to tell me I was adopted….
“Matchmaker” originally appeared in More Scary Kisses (Ticonderoga Publications, 2011).
I hope you enjoy these…if you do, please let me know, whether by a review, a recommendation to a friend, or a quick note. I’d love to hear from you!
