Get Your Free Copy of a Fantasy Magazine

Masquerade Banner

If you like free fantasy fiction, then today’s your lucky day. Monsters & Masquerades, the 6th issue of Indie Bites, just released, and it’s got five exclusive short stories–including one by me.

Guess who designed the cover image? Spoiler: it was me. šŸ™‚

Behind You, my short story, features mysterious deaths on a lonely mountain hiking trail and a park ranger who swears he saw a monster. What’s there to do but call Bea Romo Reyes, freelance exorcist and paranormal consultant, whom you met in my Halloween urban fantasy story The Memory of Ghosts. The monster is loosely based on the cryptid the Hidebehind, and the story is quick and action-packed.

It’s also in extremely good company. The other stories in this issue are awesome, and I’m humbled to have a piece among them. The issues includes:

Glorious Monsters by D.N. Bryn

Lead Me Not Into Temptation by Josie Jaffrey

My Granny, The Dragon by Gemma Church

Behind You by Kristen Brand

The True Tale of the Sockburn Worm by Nova Warner

And the following reviews:

Succulents and Spells by Andi C. Buchanan, reviewed by Asha from A Cat, A Book and A Cup of Tea

A Fate of Wrath and Flame by K.A. Tucker, reviewed by Rosina from Lace and Dagger Books

The stories have a wide range of tones, from funny to dark to heart-warming, and include fantasy subgenres from urban to historical. There’s something for everyone, so start reading now!

If Kristen Brand could have any superpower, she'd want telekinesis so she wouldn't have to move from her computer to pour a new cup of tea. She spends far too much time on the internet, and when she's not writing, she's usually reading novels or comic books. Icon by @heckosart.
