Just a reminder today, that author Laura L. Sullivan , (Under the Green Hill, 2010, Guardian of the Green Hill, 2011) is offering two short stories for free in Kindle e-book format now, for a limited time. While she has other short stories and books for adults and young adults, the following are written for young audiences. The links for free download from Amazon.com are below. I became acquainted with Laura Sullivan online after reviewing her book, Under the Green Hill, back in 2010. I will receive nothing if you download her free books (and neither will she), but if you enjoy them, I'm sure that will make her happy and she'd love to know about it.
"Clever Elody" is a feel-good fairytale about brains, love, and perseverance and is available for free until Saturday. "Snake Plant" is a creepy tale (think "Little Shop of Horrors" creepy) and will appeal to every child who finds his mother overbearing (isn't that all of them?). It's available for purchase at any time, but for free from December 15-19.
The romantic children's story Clever Elody features a poetic prince, and the poor girl who teaches him how to turn one borrowed chicken into perfect bliss.
In the children's horror story Snake Plant, a young boy longs for a pet – any pet – but has to make due with an exotic vine that helps him battle his controlling mother.
About the author:
(from her website)
I am... hmmm...A misanthrope who is full of hope?A romantic who still can't quite manage to write an unequivocally happy ending?This is what I look like, anyway, on a good day.
I write everything, or if I haven't yet, I will. My published work includes middle grade fantasy; young adult fantasy, historical, and historical fantasy; and adult action/adventure/romance. Still waiting to find the perfect home are a YA contemporary with a male protagonist, and a flippantly literary adult comedy. I'll write everything else, eventually.
I adore every single one of you who has ever read a word I've written.
