This month I’m going to do things a little differently and put two short stories up under my Free Stories page.
This is the first and it’s a mock fairytale called Book Store Baker.
I have a thing with liking book stores to be quiet so I’m really not impressed when parents let their kids run about and terrorise the place.
This story was born out of a particularly bad trip to a bookstore. At the time I was reading a lot of fairy tales about Baba Yaga and her penchant for eating children. I started to see why she would find the idea appealing when I watched a child have a tantrum and destroy a bunch of books much to the dismay of the poor staff. Then I started to wonder how Baba could get away with it now….and this story was born.
I hope you enjoy it. Find it here: Bookstore Baker
