I am Seraphine LaLande, VooDoo Priestess! Well, not quite.
In order to be a priestess I have to first successfully raise a zombie, make it do my bidding, and then tuck it back in for the eternal dirt nap it was supposed to have to begin with. Of course, being me, things don’t go according to plan. The trouble all started when my zombie ran off into the night...

I wasn't sure what to expect - voodoo and zombies are not my usual genre. And who would've thought the priestess would have a sense of humor and be a lot like you and me? That's how the author, Christine Butler, got me hooked! Okay, if I'm specific, it would give away too much of the story and you must experience it yourself.

Now, remember, I'm reading this book in the middle of the afternoon on a hot, stifling summer day and the sun is shining bright. With that in mind, there were times when I f...more
I am not your typical "Zombie" fan but that is why this short story appealed to me. I wanted to get a taste of what Zombie stories are like. And if this story is any indication I think I will enjoy more Zombie and the magic of voodoo type stories. Certainly from this author. I'm pretty sure I will read this entire series as it comes out.

What I liked: The protagonist has a sense of humor and is as human as a human who can raise a Zombie can get. But not only does the main character have an inter...more

This is my own story. I'm not really voting on it, just making sure it gets noticed, because it's one of my babies! And just as I would brag about my own living children, I have to do so for my paper and electronic ones too.

This is the first in a series of 6 short stories that will end up being compiled into one book. The series is called "The VooDoo Follies" and follows a young Seraphine LaLande as she stumbles through learning the voodoo that her family has been practicing for generations. The...more

Excellent Short Story! Can't wait for the rest in this series!

The Source was exactly what I expected it to be (after reading the blurb) and MUCH MUCH MORE! What a great story in such a small package. It made for a quick, funny lunch break read, and by the end I wanted more! Seraphine had me giggling at her inexperience with magic, and her efforts to make things right. I found myself hoping that she would go against what she knew was the right thing to do, to
get herself into more trouble. I can't...more
Short story about a beginning Voodoo priestess. May turn out okay if you can read the rest of the stories.
Typical ebook errors: lose/loose, for example, as well as exercise for exorcise and bowel for bowl.

Didn't expect to like it so much but I don't see myself reading the rest of the series.
Great short story
