Free Short Story: One Week Only!
What if you never knew your father?
What if your mother’s stories about him always contradicted themselves?
Isabelle, ten years old and fiercely determined, sets out to track down her father’s true identity. Her mother’s tall tales have one fact in common, one clue. Isabelle’s father was a nobleman.
Isabelle’s only hope lies in the records room at the great cathedral, where the Church of the Divine Mother tracks the births and deaths of the noble born. Even the half-nobles, like Isabelle. Whether or not they’d be willing to share that information … Is another issue entirely.
Paternal Pursuits is a touching short story set in the “Shepherd of the Dead” world. Enjoy this charming tale of hope, dedication and discovering one’s past in order to establish one’s future.

If only the city had a stockpile of corpses, ready for use…
