Cheap eReads: Original Stories

ABanks-Legacy Lost

ABanks-Legacy LostI love trying new authors. Lately it’s been a little harder as I’m trying to catch up on all of my fave series. For that reason, I love short stories. They are quick easy reads and I get a taste of an authors writing. As such, I’m always trolling around Amazon’s free Kindle deals, and whenever I find something good, I generally post it to the social sites. This time though, I found way to many to do that.

Right here are 32 fabulous Original stories and this isn’t even all of them. If you search for “ Original“, you’ll find 12 pages of short stories by some of today’s fabulous fantasy authors. The best part…they’re all $.99 or less. How can you not grab a few of these, right?

And if you haven’t already, make sure you check out these three anthologies from, all of which are free and filled with greatness – Some of the Best from 2012 Edition (available January 1, 2013), The Fierce Reads Anthology and The Fierce Reads Anthology: Volume 2 (just released today!).

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
