I think short stories are perfect for the holiday season. We’re all busy and we have limited time, but we still need to feed our reading habit. So a good short story is perfect. And if it’s about the holidays, it’s even better! All of these stories are in the public domain and you can download them for free. The short stories are available at Project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.org/) and can be read online, printed out or downloaded to your computer, Kindle or Nook.
Here are a few of my favorites:

Review of Snarky & Sweet by Susan Denney

Image
Snarky & Sweet: A Romantic Comedy about Twins, Texas and a Big Red Diamond by Susan Denney Published by Diva an imprint of AWOC.COM Publishing
Good Reads Synopsis: Resistance is futile. 
Shy, demure, reserved Lurleen couldn’t possibly be more different than her gregarious, sassy, sarcastic twin, Lurlette. One is your kind stereotypical schoolteacher and the other is a man-eating adventuress. Whether they take you cruising in a Miata or busting out of a kidnapper's shack on a John Deere, you’re in for one riot of a ride. The novel moves you to compassion then spins you into comedic circles.
* I received this book from the author to review. I was not compensated for my review. All opinions are mine. *
My Turn: This is a sweet romance that is suitable for all. I found this to be an interesting and fun book to read. The main characters, twins - identical in looks only, are well developed and likable. Well one starts out likable and the other kind of grows on you. They are easy to get to …

Review of Game by Phil Truman

Game by Phil Truman Published by Buoy Up Press
Good Reads Synopsis: Year in and year out the football powerhouse Hert City Trojans import a ringer to fuel their championship charge, but their luck is about to change. In the small backwater town of Tsalagee, first-year coach Donny Doyle knows the only way he can fulfill his promise to unseat the Hert City juggernaut, is to beat them at their own GAME. But in his own recruit, the mammoth and powerful, yet troubled and ominous Leotis McKinley, Doyle finds more than he bargained for. Truman’s character-rich novel GAME spins an energetic tale around the intensity of small-town high school football in America. And yet, amid the fast-paced drive of the story, lies an account of the human spirit struggling through adversity and finding victory. Readers of any age or gender will feel the triumph, honor, and glory that comes from the…GAME.

Among The Living by Timothy W Long Published by Library of the Living Dead Press
Good Reads Synopsis: Mike works for a small news paper in Seattle. He has everyday problems just like everyone else: a delusional ex-wife who mourns the loss of their son with pills and a bottle of booze. An attractive co-worker he wishes he could pursue but fears her rejection. Kate has a dark secret. Outwardly she is a perfectly normal woman with perfectly unnatural needs. Kate is a budding young serial killer who lures men to hotel rooms for a night of kinky sex, and a date with her razor sharp knife. Grinder sings for Corpse for a Day, a heavy metal band on verge of making it big. He rejects the idea so the band can keep their occult lyrics and originality in tact. Lester is content to smoke and drink the day away while the outside world descends into chaos. When the National Guard cuts off his neighborhood he and his beautiful girlfriend hide out and wait for the madness to pass. Who will remain Among t…

Santa Is Sneaky
No. Really he is. Brilliant but sneaky.
For those of you that don’t know me let me introduce myself, I’m a.c. Mason. I’m French Canadian by mother tongue. I was born on the Island of Cape Breton which is super far to the east coast of Canada. I spent a large chunk of my youth in Quebec. A lot of people speak French there.
So back to how sneaky Santa is. You see in our family tradition kids don’t go to bed Christmas eve. It’s a big party. Everyone comes over or the family meets up somewhere.  You might be wondering how S…
