Short Story Saturday #1

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

Currently $2.99 on Amazon.

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.

Summary:

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

Currently $0.99 on Amazon.

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.

Summary:

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
