I just released my story “Clear Skies in Pixieland”, originally published earlier this year in the first issue ofÂ Nine, as a Kindle e-book for $1.29.Â I’ve been charging 99 cents for the other individual short stories, but this one’s longer.Â I noticed that someone already bought a copy, even though it’s been up less than a week–thank you, whoever you are!
Here’s a description, lifted from the Amazon page (I wrote it myself, so I’m allowed to do that):
It didn’t take Chris long to learn the dark side of his summer job: trapping pixies, fairies and other small creatures in a magical forest for sale toÂ wealthy collectors.Â He’d have quit if he didn’t need the money.Â Now, after a disastrous expedition, only Chris can rescue the man who hired him.Â But does his boss deserve to be rescued?Â And how can Chris ever pay the terrible price the pixies have demanded?
I enjoy writing fiction more than I enjoy writing promotional blurbs.
Unfortunately, the editors of Nine decided to stop publishing the magazine after the 3rd issue.Â I was sad to hear this, but I’m glad that they gave it a try and helped some great stories find a good home.
