Fairy Tale Redux: A Short Story is now Live!

Fairy Tale Cover PhotoWell, I did it. I published a story.

It’s a short story, and some of you have already read it, but I wanted to get some practice with the amazon publishing program and see how it went before I publish my first full-length novel.

This is a modern day version of the classic Snow White fairy tale. I originally wrote this as part of a Friday Fiction series here on my blog. I made a few minor changes to the story before publication and I removed the story from my blog to make sure I was in compliance with the amazon terms and conditions.

If you’re interested in reading it, you can either purchase the story on amazon for $2.99 or you can borrow it for free! Here’s the link to the book on amazon. It’s only available as a e-book right now, and the format looks best on a kindle e-reader.

If you like it, feel free to tell a friend or, better yet, lend them the book while it’s still eligible for lending.

I hope you enjoy the story and I hope to have more coming soon! Continue reading

Friday Fiction- The End of the Fairy Tale (Part 10)

Castle Neuschwanstein, GermanyEddie stared through the glass window of the hospital room at Snow’s sleeping form. He pressed one hand against the pane; the other he balled into a fist until his nails dug into his palm.

“You did everything you could son.” Doc put a hand on Eddie’s shoulder. “It’s time you get some rest.”

“I can’t leave her,” Eddie whispered. “I need to be here.” Continue reading

Friday Fiction- Fairy Tale Redux Part 9 (of 10)

Castle Neuschwanstein, Germany“Isabella, I do wish you’d call me mother. After all, it’s been ten years.” Her stepmother walked forward and stopped at the edge of the old men’s long table. She placed a basket on the wooden surface.

“What do you want?” Isabella asked warily.

“I’ve come to apologize.” Her stepmother opened the basket and carefully pulled out an apple pie. She set it in the middle of the table and then withdrew two plates and two forks. “I brought your favorite dessert, as a peace offering.” Continue reading

Friday Fiction- Fairy Tale Redux Part 7

Castle Neuschwanstein, Germany“Good morning,” Isabella said to the back of Eddie’s head as he stared out the window. “What would you like to eat?”

Eddie turned. His eyes widened and a slow smile stretched across his face.

“Uh, the usual,” he replied.

“Oh, well, I’m new here,” Isabella felt heat rise to her face as she stumbled over her words. “Sorry, what is your usual?”

“Whatever Doc’s making,” Eddie replied with a wink. Continue reading

Friday Fiction- Fairy Tale Redux Part 6

Castle Neuschwanstein, GermanyThe next morning Isabella woke to the smell of coffee and bacon. The tantalizing aroma seeped through the cracks around the door and filled the small room off the back of the kitchen which Doc had given to her. A deep inhalation told her brain it was time to get up. She stretched and rolled out of the covers.

As she stood, she looked down at her clothes. They were wrinkled and had acquired a few new stains from her efforts at preparing dinner the night before.

Ah well, not much I can do about that, she thought as she slid her feet into her small black shoes.

As she stepped into the kitchen, Doc greeted her with a smile. Continue reading
