Episode 2 in DEATH BETWEEN THE PAGES is up on #kindlevella

I love sharing my short stories with you all and Kindle Vella has made it so easy. My newest series, DEATH BETWEEN THE PAGES is all about retribution, revenge, and taking back your life after a tragic incident.

The newest story, SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN, was released today. You can read it for free on the Kindle Vella app.

Here’s a little snipper to whet your mystery reading appetite:

An early evening Mass was in session when Halley entered the church and found an empty pew halfway up to the altar.

            She heard his voice before she saw him. She’d never forgotten that voice. It had a rugged, robust timbre that resonated throughout the church, bouncing off the stone pillars and sailing to every parishioner’s soul. It commanded, demanded, rapt attention. Halley knew the strength behind the voice; the seduction of words meeting air, splicing together to make heads and hearts swim. She remembered how that voice had affected her.

            And she remembered what the person behind the voice had done to her.

            Then she saw him.  He was much the same as her memory allowed. Older, of course, but with age, more appealing physically than before. Gray streaks shot out from

his temples, worming their way behind his ears. His eyes hadn’t changed at all. Ice blue orbs shaded by the blackest of lashes. Eyes that saw into your very core. Eyes that could twinkle with the merriment one moment and ignite with the flames of desire the next.         

            Halley had been witness to both extremes.

            As she knelt and made the sign of the cross, a sudden qualm of doubt at her mission and its ultimate goal fired through her. Just as quickly, reason overtook doubt. She had to do what had been planned; complete what had been started. Hers wasn’t the only life in the balance here. There were the others to consider. They had put their faith, their trust, and their hopes in her. She would not let them down.

A new #KINDLEVELLA series from me…

Many of you may know that before I wrote full length novel fiction, I dabbled in literary short stories. I did well, too. Had over 30 published. A goodly amount of thosse stories were murder mysteries – at the time, my favorite form of reading material.

Weeeeeellllllll……

Recently, I transposed my favorites of those spooky tales and am now releasing one story a week on my Vella account.

The title of the series is called DEATH BETWEEN THE PAGES ( get it??!! LOL) and here’s the blurb and cover:

A cheating husband. A group of widows. A hospital bed. A priest. What do they all have in common?

Death.

I plan on releasing one new story a week until they run out – or I write some new ones.

If you’re looking for some thriller/suspense/spooky tales this Halloween season, check the series out. The first episode is free.

Happy reading, kids. And don’t forget to keep the lights on while you are. Hee Hee ~ Peg
