Free reads and short stories in general are an excellent way to try out new authors and genres. Often shorter tales give an author the chance to tell a supporting character's story or add background and dimension to characters and worlds. Sometimes there's just a tale to be told and it doesn't take so many words.
Dead Lily Blooms (originally appearing in the anthology Tales From The Mist) now makes an solitary appearance as a free ebook. Part of an upcoming series of stories At Death's Gates, Dead Lily is a paranormal romance. Perhaps a bit different from my fantasy romances, but...not so much.
Someone wants vampyre Lily dead, and a bargain with Death has been struck. Death sends servant Agaar to bring Lily to him, but the task becomes more complicated than either Death or Agaar anticipated.
