When I started my blog, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. I knew I had a post to write, though, so I began with a hurricane and no idea where I would go from there. I am a writer, so it made sense I would talk about writing and all that entails. My first love of the written word, however, is reading books. So I find myself altering my blog with a make-over to focus on the reading, the tales I devour whether good, great, or indifferent. I eat books up.
Now, then is my first Christmas with this new bent, and I’m wandering the web looking for posts, for authors to join in, for heart-warming to chilling seasonal reading. I’ll take it all. Send it my way–and I’m sending it on to you, and to Facebook, and to Twitter, and—you get the idea.
I decided to begin with a children’s book, and then WordPress opened to my Reader. There I found “Free Fiction Monday” by Kristine Rusch. Free during this season (and others) is to me a gift. This is free. I hope you like it. Someone is giving it. So I am passing this short story on to you. “Three Wishes Before a Fire.” Click through to Kristine’s copyrighted gift and enjoy this bit of magic for the season.
