Free – For You!

For those of you who haven’t yet read my latest book of short stories, A Walk in the Woods, you can get it free – today and tomorrow! Tempted? Here’s an extract from one of the short stories, The Dark Place:

I hate this dark place. A cobweb gently glides over my cheek, its maker long gone, searching for fresh food. A squeak in the corner reminds me that I am not alone. The rats have been my only friends for the past few weeks. We used to fight each other for food, but food no longer interests me.

I jump, startled by the sudden wailing in the corridor. It is the same every night, but my senses still fear her. I smile, her incoherent babbling highlighting her madness. I thought I, too, would succumb to the dementia. I have no such joy. I have to live with my fate every single moment of every day.

The hours tick by, tick-tock, tick-tock. I have no idea of time, but the growing light warns me that daybreak is dawning. The birds launch into song, mocking me, crowing at me. They know today is the day, my very last on this earth.

    Thanks for the free book, Esther, but access to it is limited to certain parts of the world, so people like me who don’t live in the western world can’t get it.

    Perhaps next time you could consider a separate link via email as another option, for something like this?

    Once again, congratulations!

    • Thank you for your comment. It’s only available on Amazon at the moment. It will be coming out in paperback after Christmas and then I’ll have copies myself that I can send out anywhere in the world. So do let me know if you’d like one πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks so much! Downloaded a copy to my kindle and sharing your post. πŸ™‚
