I've uploaded two more stories to Smashwords, although these aren't free. Sorry. These were next up on my list to publish, it just turns out it happened during the sale--which is still on-going, if you haven't checked it out.
The first, "Teacher's Pet", is a tale about a third grade teacher and the problems she has with the class pet. This is selling for $0.99.
It was written in response to a prompt on the Absolute Write horror forum. There's a link to the site on the right side bar, if you want to check it out. They have a wonderful community of writers there.
The second story is actually two in one. The first is a novelette (6,850 words) about what happens when a down-on-his-luck newspaper man gets the job of his dreams. You know what they say: if something is too good to be true...
The second part is a very short story (1,400 words) about a family that finds an unusual pet on their way home from an outing.
I put these two together because they have the same sort of vaguely Lovecraft vibe, and also because I didn't feel right charging separately for such a short work. A little over 8,000 words for both, for $1.99. (Either linked picture takes you to the same page.)
So, there you are. Hope you all had a lovely Independence Day!
Until next time, Gentle Readers.
