Finally finished my little novella Play Date. Here’s the description or “back cover” info:
“I would probably be considered a rotten babysitter. I can’t say I’d recommend me to your average mom in need of someone to keep their kid safe and nurtured. I don’t really do ‘safe and nurturing.’ On the other hand, nobody can say I don’t know how to show a kid a good time. I can pretty safely say that a kid entrusted to me would absolutely love me. And you know what? Every once in a while, a kid can be handy to have around.”
Max O’Donnell is a changeling, a faerie child raised by human parents. Neither fae nor human, he doesn’t really fit in anywhere. It is a challenging life, but it does have a few perks. Using the few gifts he retained from his fae origins, Max makes a living by taking advantage of those people “with more money than sense.”Not usually one to stoop to stealing cars, Max makes an exception after being nearly run over while crossing the street. In an attempt to teach the jerk a lesson, Max steals the guy’s car.
Unfortunately, he didn’t bother to check the back seat.
It’s listed as “A Changeling Thief Story” because I’d like to write more about Max and his friends. It’s up for sale for the Kindle at the low low price of $0.99. It’s also available for several free promotion days and the Kindle Lending Library, assuming I can figure out how to make those things work. You can find it here.
I also did the cover art myself, and I’m pretty pleased with the result.
