For those readers who are giving or receiving devices this Christmas that allow for e-reading, whether a tablet or dedicated e-reader, GoodEReader.com is giving you two short stories to put on those new machines.
The first is a short story by noted young adult author Cheryl Rainfield. As a traditionally published bestselling author, Rainfield made news earlier this year for being instrumental in joining with other authors in the growth of the #YASaves hashtag on Twitter, complete with essay contests and a letter writing campaign following a scathing piece in the Wall Street Journal about the inappropriateness and pointless plot lines in young adult literature being published today. As one of her YA titles was specifically singled out in the article, Rainfield’s resulting campaign opened a flood gate of response from authors and readers alike who shared personal stories of how their favorite books as teens were vital to their understanding and love of reading.
Rainfield’s short story, “PinPoint: A HUNTED Bonus Story,” tells some of the backstory and additional plot lines to the novel’s main character, Caitlyn, and can be found by clicking HERE.
A second work for our readers to enjoy comes from thriller/horror writer W.D. Gagliani, entitled, “The Christmas Wolf.” Gagliani is the author of the bestselling Dominic Lupo detective series, available from Samhain Publishing. Gagliani is one of the many authors who are now working on digitally self-publishing their out-of-print and backlist titles, and enjoying a resurgence in fan base as a result.
As with Rainfield’s short story, Gagliani’s ebook short contains bonus materials from his popular print series, which includes the books Wolf’s Trap, Wolf’s Gambit, Wolf’s Bluff, and Wolf’s Edge. He has an unrelated thriller title, Savage Nights, available as well. “The Christmas Wolf” can be found by clicking HERE.
