Recently I've discovered the coolness that is Smashwords, a free way to publish in a variety of digital book formats. Simply by uploading a Word doc file, I can get my book into places like Kobo, Apple iBooks, and Barnes and Noble.

So I figured that I would put up some of my work, including a couple novellas and today, "Trouble's Turn: a Mystical Animal Allies Short Story."

Dreaming Stories

I had a dream that became this story. Though this tale doesn't resemble the dream, it got me thinking of the life of the animal Allies of Native American spirituality and what their lives are like.

In American Indian Wisdom, each person has an "Ally," an animal spirit guide who helps them live a good life. Trouble in this story is a young White Wolf trying to figure out her place in the world.

Making "Trouble's Turn" FREE

Why Smashwords and not just Amazon? I'll go over that another time, but the main thing is I can't make the short story free for everyone (not just Kindle Unlimited subscribers who pay) on Amazon.

I'm so excited to share the COVER of this short story along with the link where yu can get it in the format of your choice.
