02/24/2012 Fantastic Friday!

Greetings and welcome back! This week has just blown by, and I'm a bit surprised it's already Friday. I hope this was a productive week for everyone, but let's get right to it shall we?

Today I have "The Magic Garden" by Shane Greenhough, it's free at Smashwords and is a fun short story about a man and his garden.

The garden has a world in it that only he can see, and has seen since he was a child at the home. You learn of how he learned to handle others not being able to see it, and how that world has come to see him as well. It's a sweet little story that's, while a bit silly at times, was rather enjoyable on a Friday morning to read.

When it comes to things about the fae, it all really depends on how it's done. Whether or not I like them will often depend on my mood, since sometimes I prefer some of the more twisted and darker portrayal of the fae than the free-spirited magical possibly harmless versions. Today I felt like the latter, which is why I selected this story. It's enjoyable, and you feel satisfied for the main character when he finally gets accepted by the world he's been watching for so long.

While there are plot twists and spoilers in the story, and for politeness I won't go into them here, they aren't too far out of the realm of possibility. I caught on fairly quickly, but that doesn't mean the story isn't enjoyable. It's light-hearted and if I didn't like it, I wouldn't have put it up on my site. "The Magic Garden" is free on Smashwords and I recommend checking it out if you just want something to brighten your day.

Thanks everyone for stopping by all week. I see we have new members and the visit number has been rising much higher than it was before. Thank you for all your support and continued visits. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or recommendations never hesitate to post or contact me. I hope you all have wonderful weekends and I will see you back here on Monday!
