Free short story Riding the Serpent now available

Posted on July 15, 2015 (Subscribe to Blog)

This month's short story is the final segment in the run of tales about Hal's friends as they discover their shapeshifting talents and escape from the Island of Fog. Emily is, as you know, the last to transform.

Riding the Serpent
Emily is worried she might be the only one of her classmates without a shapeshifting talent. After an eventful afternoon breaking into the lighthouse and blocking the fog-hole, now there's a mad dash for Elsewhere. Will she discover her ability before it's too late?

Although these stories are completely free, sometime next month I intend compiling these six related segments (not including the Christmas tale) into an ebook and releasing it on Kindle, Nook, Apple, and Kobo. This compilation will form the second book in the Island of Fog Chronicles and will cost $2.99. I don't expect you to buy it if you've already consumed the stories on this website for free, but many have asked for an ebook version, and I intend to deliver – but at a price, because it's very difficult to mark a book as free on Amazon and Nook, and if I'm going to price it, then I won't cheapen it with that horrible $0.99 label.

So there. :-)

You can find the short story section on the official Island of Fog page, or you can jump straight to it here.

Please let me know what you think! And remember, a free short story will always be published every month on the 15th (even if it's a little late and arrives on the 16th instead). Next month is something completely different.

Well worth the price if you haven't read them for free. I'll probably purchase it so it's on my kindle anyway.
