Attack of the Sugar Plum Fairies, A Story for Demented Children

Hello again, I have an unusual Christmas story for you, the 5th in the Demented Children Series.

It is free on all sites, including Amazon.

Amazon
Amazon UK
Smashwords
B&N
Apple
Kobo
Diesel

Description
The Sugar Plum Fairies are tired of dancing for nothing. To make matters worse, the North Pole is freezing, they have to wear skimpy outfits and their poor little legs get worn out quickly. When the Elvin Labor Union was formed, the poor little fairies were left out of any sort of fair bargaining agreement.

The time has come for all of that to change.

Everyone knows Christmas Eve is the best time to attack the North Pole. Santa’s getting ready to deliver toys, the elves are partying and the reindeer have finished playing their reindeer games. Can the legendary North Pole withstand yet another attack? Will Christmas come to a screeching halt?

Join three stealthy fairies: Sydae, Araedae and Zannae, as they try to make life easier for all Sugar Plum Fairies. Will they be able to succeed in their mission? What’s happened to Santa? Will the elves stop the fairies from their task? And what secret is Mrs. Claus hiding from the world?

This is a short story approximately 4600 words long, which translates to about 25-30 printed pages.

Thank you Kevin2960. It's hard to get Amazon to pricematch Amazon UK. I'm hoping Kobo will get my books up on WH Smith eventually and they can be used to pricematch.

In any case, I really appreciate you reading the story and I'm thrilled that you enjoyed it.

@nookatz. It's probably one of the oddest Christmas stories you've ever read too.

For those of you curious about how I come up with these strange ideas, here's a blog post where I talk about how "Attack of the Sugar Plum Fairies" came about.

It's Christmas week, a perfect time for an odd little Christmas Story.

Hello,

Attack of the Sugar Plum Fairies is still free at all stores. It's a fun, short, and highly rated Christmas story. Merry Christmas to you.

All my best,

John H. Carroll
