Free Stories

So you want to test the waters of my writing without a monetary commitment? This is indeed the place for you!

For the sake of simplicity I will link to all free short stories and flash fiction that I have hosted on my blog in chronological order. Each story will list its length, expected time to read, genre, and any NSFW warnings that may be present as well as the elevator pitch. This is a work in progress, so not all stories will be available via this page. There may also be stories that I remove from the blog for publication or publication consideration, and those may not be pulled from this page in a timely manner, which means there may be dead links until I get around to removing them.

So let’s get to the stories, eh?
