I hadn’t written a short story in quite some time (like a few years), and when the idea for Murder Mittens came to me I knew I had to write it down. It was fun and gory and weird, and just the sort of thing to get me in the mood for the upcoming spooky season. Halloween is my favorite holiday and fall is my favorite time of year, so it feels fitting that I’m releasing a horror piece on October 1st this year.

Murder Mittens is the story of a white angora cat named Mittens who goes from fluffy family pet to something a bit more sinister. I don’t want to give too much away, this story is only about 28 pages long after all, but trust me when I say I had a great time writing it and I hope you have a great time reading it!

It put Murder Mittens up for sale on Amazon for $.99, and it is eBook only. I realize that some folks don’t have eReaders though, and I want to make it accessible to everyone.

If you’re on my mailing list you’ll be receiving a free copy of Murder Mittens on October 1st no matter what! I’m going to send it out to everyone to enjoy for the Halloween season.

If you haven’t signed up for my mailing list, but would still like to read it, use this form and I’ll make it happen! I’ll send it over in a PDF or EPUB format (whichever you prefer) for you to enjoy. The only thing I ask in return is if you could please leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads (or both)! I know some folks don’t do reviews and that’s fine, but I’ll even appreciate just a simple star rating if you have the time.

Sometime in the future I will likely include Murder Mittens as a bonus with a novel (likely A Dreaming Summer when I finally get it finished). But for now you can grab it for a quick read if you so desire.

The only other note I have for the week is that the problem with Blue on Amazon SEEMS to be fixed. I’ve ordered another copy so we’ll see. I will also have a storefront set up soon on the website through Lulu offering other copies of both Rust books. More on that when the time comes!
