Free short stories by Karen Chance

the Oueen's Witch is a short story connected to the New York Times bestselling Cassandra Palmer and Dorina Basarab series of urban fantasy novels. It features Kit Marlowe in a supernatural thriller set in Elizabethan England


The Day of the Dead is a short story connected to the New York Times bestselling Cassandra Palmer series of urban fantasy novels. It was first published in the Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance (2008) and is now being offered as a free ebook. It features Tomas, a character from Touch the Dark (2006), the first Cassandra Palmer novel.

I have read a couple of her books, and I can really recommend her. She is a good writer.

Thanks mikaelalind. I grabbed both, though The Day of the Dead looks more to taste than The Oueen's Witch.

Edit: For Calibre users, you'll need to set the Metadata for these. Both come through with tmp_xxxxxxxx filenames that you sometimes see from Smashwords. I've read that it comes from the metadata not being set in the word file that the books are generated from.

I've found that (at least, lately) with Smashwords, you are best off to get both the EPUB and Mobi formats. Add the EPUB first, as it often has correct metadata. Then, drag the mobi onto the big square on the right side, where the cover is shown; this adds the mobi to the same book (rather than having it be detected as a different book, due to bad metadata, which is what happens if you use the Add button or drag it into the center/book list. Then, "convert" the mobi or epub format to mobi (you can check first, but often mobi has better formatting).
