Play Date was sort of a “proof of concept” novella. I wanted to prove to myself that I could write something worth reading (and finish it). It’s the first story in a larger world that I will explore further. I’m currently currently working on a full length novel featuring Max O’Donnell and his friends. I’ll keep you posted as that project progresses.
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 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. You can find it here.
