Today, I have my very first short story up for you: Crimson Snow. And it's FREE on Amazon (HERE) and Nook (HERE)! My husband is convinced it's half love story, half creepy. I think there's a lot of yearning underneath all that crimson snow. You be the judge.
From the back cover:
Green Valley was once known for its fertile farming, picturesque mountains, and abundant wildlife. Now snow and ice cover all but the tallest homes. The only sounds are Maverick’s boots clumping through the snowdrifts and the frigid wind hissing down the mountain. Even the beasts in the woods have gone utterly silent.
But the path forward is clear, especially for one emboldened by optimism. So Maverick keeps moving, trudging through the abandoned town toward the desolate tundra beyond the forest, marring the snow with his bloody footprints.
To leave is a risk. To stay might be suicide.
Either way, no one leaves these mountains alive.
