Short Story Saturday honors short story indie authors of Amazon.com that are worth a damn. I shuffle through the grime and find you a couple gems to check out if you’re looking for a quick read.
Lilah’s Ghost by Deb Logan
A MG paranormal short story about a girl who’s best and only friend is a ghost who can’t leave the house. It’s a cute story about friendship and selfishness in a paranormal setting. A bonus short story entitled Angelic Voices is included as well, which is a contemporary MG story about jealousy and karma. Perfect for fans of MG that want a quick read.
Twelve-year-old Hannah Barnes is just like all the other girls in her small Georgia town, except for one little detail: Hannah’s best friend – make that her only friend – is a ghost. When the annual Sweet Pea Festival arrives, Hannah discovers the secret to freeing Lilah from her earthly bondage. Hannah has a decision to make. Will she help Lilah move on, or will she hold on to her best friend?
Severance by Tom Doolah
The worst part about this story is the tacky name of the main character. The writing itself is anything but. I enjoyed the quick pace and vivid descriptions of the assassin at work. The author has two other short stories available to read if you like this one too.
Severance had a job to do. As an assassin she was required to detach herself from her target. But this one was personal, as well as professional. And there was a good chance she may not survive the job.
Would her preparations be enough to carry her to a new dawn? Was she up to the task of taking on the most famous and mystery-shrouded assassin in the world? There was only one way to find out
