12/02/2011 Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back! I can see again, well ,mostly, my appointment went well and the eye drops have worn off to the point where I can see letters again. As soon as I was able to, I got right over here and found a story to show you all today, so let's get right to it!

Today I bring you "High Noon at Hot Topic" by Christina Pope. I found this free ebook on Smashwords, and though it is short I feel it is absolutely delightful. I always love stories about monster hunters, and with all the recent hype of vampires, ones that turn them into dust get special attention from me.

The story is about Kara, an assistant manager at a Hot Topic location at a Southern California mall. A little jaded with her current position in life, the English lit. major runs into some unexpected excitement when a man shows up who isn't the normal tween-goth-hypster shopper. His name is Gregoire, and he most definitely doesn't belong in a Hot Topic, or does he? I don't want to say too much since it is a relatively short story and I'm worried about spoilers, but let's just say there is vampires turning into dust.

"High Noon at Hot Topic" can be found at Smashwords, and is a recent addition so will likely be available in the premium catalog soon. For now though it is absolutely free, so you can load it up in your browser for some good short reading, and also a good Christmas present for those with e-readers!

Thanks for coming back. I look forward to more posts and such. Come back Monday, and hopefully I will have made some more progress on my prequel. Also, to all that finished NanoWriMo with your 50,000 words, congrats and good job! Now comes editing! Also, another note, "The Light Rises" is still 50% off until Christmas with coupon code: UQ59B . Until then, I hope you all have a good weekend!
