The first story Wrong Number I wrote for a Halloween prompt another blog was hosting. The story was challenging because I had a certain word count to stick to, but it did bring out my creativity.

Valerie is an insomniac. All of the sleeping pills and natural remedies in the world can’t help her. Valerie’s insomnia is getting worse. Every time she closes her eyes darkness surrounds her and something scary lurks in its wake. If she doesn’t get sleep soon she’ll go crazy, but can she face her dream filled fears?

After I wrote Wrong Number a friend of mine asked me to write a few short Halloween stories for a paper she worked for. Sure! These next seven stories I wrote for her paper, some of them the paper accepted, some they didn’t. The stories had to extra short to fit into the limited space I was given. I added to the stories after the paper ran them and placed the others I’d written in here too.

Dwarfs Eve was especially fun to write. This story took me back to when I was a teenager and visited the cemetery at night. I can still remember the little red eyeballs dancing around in the distance. And No I wasn’t on drugs:)

Amber’s friends insist on taking her to the cemetery on Halloween under the full moon. Amber’s gut tells her differently. Her instincts scream that it’s not a good idea. But her boyfriend and friends swear they will be there to protect her. She’s never been able to tell her boyfriend no…

Tavern Cat is short and sweet with an old soul that doesn’t want to let go. He knows where his family truly lives.

The local tavern was Ranald’s second home, until one night he didn’t show. The bartender gets worried about him. After visiting the sick old man at his home, the bartender is convinced that once the Scot is better he will be back to warm his favorite barstool…

Ghostly Wanderings is a fun tale of bar fights, death, and ghosts viewed through Summer’s eyes.

Harry doesn’t realize this will be his last night alive. If he’d only changed his ways before the beginning of the evening things might have been different, but Harry was out to have some fun…

The Devil in Disguise is another fun bar tale (and yes, I did write this before Lucifer first aired. There are a few similarities.:)) A bar, the devil, and desire.

Pete puffed out his chest to try and show some enthusiasm. The last time and only time he fought he almost killed the guy because of his size. But this man was entrancing his woman, along with all of the others and the women either didn’t seem to notice or didn’t care…

Spells, chills, and Victoria. All Victoria want’s is to live a happy fulfilled life. So what if she’s a low-level witch? She only used a few spells to get Te Amo up and running. Unfortunately, the church down the hill is not happy with her or her methods of successes. Victoria is surprised and not prepared at how far they will go to close her down and run her out of town.

Shadow Man is a terrifying tale of a rundown prison. Some believe the prison is haunted. Some do not. Will Kilian become a firm believer?

Killian had heard the rumors about this place being haunted but was hard pressed to believe them. At least not until this night, working graveyard shift…

Karma is my favorite of the eight stories. I’m sure there has been a time in everyone’s life that they’ve wished Karma on another person. Sometimes the aggravation and frustration build’s to a higher level than any one person can take.  When that happens, wish for Belle, maybe she’ll come to the rescue.

Belle is on a mission to keep bad karma in its place. Katrina wants to play and Lori’s stuck in the middle without realizing it. Can Lori fix her karma before Belle has to fix it for her?

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
