I have published my first short story on Amazon! And the second is available to preorder.

The weaver's daughter compressed The Weaver’s Daughter

One summer’s evening Kyra comes face to face with the Shadeling, a monster that has been terrorising her village by stealing livestock and children. Her mother is sick and there is nowhere to run. She doesn’t want to be his next victim, but she has nothing but her wits and her kind-hearted nature to defend herself with.

This is a fairy tale about making friends with the monsters that live next door.

Available for preorder, published on 6th Dec 2018

Five year old Jack finds a fairy in his garden, and so he and his mother find themselves entangled in a conflict between rival fairy clans. Surrounded by fairies wielding short thorn spears Sally must decide how to best protect her son and what to do with the Prince they have captured. She needs to decide whether to release him to his enemies or risk becoming casualties themselves if they don’t.

Available on preorder from:

Both of these short stories are available in Kindle Unlimited, as well as to purchase individually. So if you live in the US or the UK you can pay a monthly subscription and then access all the books available in that program. They have over a million books, thousands of audiobooks and a changing selection of magazines available as part of Kindle Unlimited.

NB By enrolling my books in that program I am not able to make them available anywhere else.

These are the first of a collection of six to eight short stories I plan to publish over the winter – one every two weeks. All of these I plan to put into Kindle Unlimited, so will be exclusive to Amazon. If you read ebooks on a different platform (Kobo, Nook, Google Play, Apple Books, etc) then please comment below or send me a message. Then I will know where I need to make future novels available.

This post contains affiliate links – using them won’t cost you anything but I will get a small bonus for referring you.


  1. Congrats, Clarissa! I’m really interested in the fact that you are pubbing short stories individually (as opposed to putting out a collection all at once of 8-10 stories. Are you finding it a lot to come up with cover art for each story, marketing each story? I’ve had short fiction pubbed in small lit mags but am very interested in the process you’ve undertaken here. Would love to know more.
