I'm the website manager and a regular contributor to Reader's Abode, which is composed of an international group of writers hailing from four different continents. We produce a free-to-read, biannual collection of short stories and poems in a variety of styles, from prose to poetry, from science fiction to horror, from thriller to mystery. In between collections, we produce articles on our blog highlighting great resources of free fiction, including one-on-one interviews with authors who have free books available online and also interviews with the editors of free magazines. So if you're looking for fantastic fiction on the web, but don't have a lot of money to spend, then this is a great place to find it.
Reader's Abode just published its second collection of fiction and poetry on September 1st, and I have two poems included in it. "Confused" is a about a tomato searching for its identity and "Electric" is about a TV that gets tired of its viewers. There are also five pieces of fiction from a number of wonderful writers, including science fiction from Randall Krzak, romance from Barbara Russell, horror from Eddie Cantrell and mainstream stories by Alice Hill and Yelena Zeltser. The collection is available to read for free when you sign up for our mailing list.
We also have an exciting lineup planned for the fall and holiday season. Starting in October, we will be doing an eBook giveaway with each blog post article, kindly donated by the authors we're interviewing. Then right before Christmas, we will give a grand prize of all the donated eBooks to one lucky winner. The contest is free to enter - just sign up for our mailing list. Everyone on our list will be entered to win. AND you can win more than once!
So if you're looking for some great reading this autumn and holiday season, take a look at Reader's Abode, sign up for our mailing list, and have a chat with our contributors. Happy reading!
