Here is another of my archived works, a short story that is a retelling of the Japanese folktale "Yuki-Onna" or "The Snow Witch". As I was writing, I realized that I felt a great deal of sympathy for the titular character, who is actually supposed to be a villain. It really turned into a tragic love story instead of a horror story.
It was published by Short-Story.Me!, which is a neat idea: you sign up, and every week they drop a new story in your inbox, totally free. Lately they've been kind of erratic and not always on time, but it's OK. It's a nice way to read some new authors with zero effort on my part.
