The end of the year is fast approaching. The Winter solstice has passed and Christmas is looming with lights and presents and food and laughter… A great time of the year, a time for understanding and love and hope.
I want to thank all of you following my blog and facebook page, reading my stories and traveling with me on this strange path with elves and dragons and weird parasites and star-crossed lovers… You are making this possible and as this is my life’s dream, I am humbled and glad.
As I am currently up to my armpits in elves, dragons and magical portals, I thought to give you a short story with Ella, Finn and co. set in Christmas. As usual, I started out wanting to write a fun and light story – my poor heroes suffer a lot as it is – but failed. Instead you have an angsty, dark tale, but I believe there is a light burning at its core: hope.
I have just pressed publish on the tale on amazon, and will soon do so on the other platforms – but I want to give this tale to you for free. It’s my Xmas present to you.
I hope you enjoy it.
