My pal Karen Healey (who was just nominated for the Morris Award — an award given to debut YA authors — congrats, Karen!) wanted me to let you know about a new project she and some other writers have put together this month, called the December Lights Project. In Karen’s words:
Feel-good, PG-ish rated short stories from spec fic authors, available to read online and updating throughout December. It’s all totally free, no advertising, no nothing – just a gift to our readers, since they are awesome. Upcoming authors include Leah Cypess, Sherwood Smith, Sarah Prineas and Marie Brennan.
So there you have it: Free fiction for you — because you are awesome. If you knew you were getting free stuff out of it, I bet you would have been awesome earlier, right? Yes, exactly. Go check out the stories and have fun. Here’s Karen’s story to get you started.
