But for Melissa Haskins, there is no future. She has woken up alone in a city of the dead. Something vast and terrible moves across the world, and she has no choice but to hide when it passes overhead – she can hear it coming by the strange music that goes before it.

That’s the intro to Christmas Sleigh Ride, my own little Christmas story, now available at Smashwords for free. Now of course, since this is me we’re talking about, there’s a little twist.

Check it out! And while you’re at it, check out the reviewer.

Have Killing Time to carry around with you, without needing to scroll through my blog archive. And while you’re there, check out some of my other titles.
I know it’s silly, but I’m early enough in my career that someone paying attention to me is still exciting.

So it’s been a bit busy this week, though I’m afraid y’all haven’t really been able to see the fruits of it here.
The good news is that I have a new story up at Smashwords, and this one is free!
That’s right. Carry Looking the Other Way with you, instead of having to scroll through my archives. Get it here. Free.

And of course, the really good stuff is right there in the sidebar.
Happy Halloween to all. More on its way later today.
