Grace Crandall | 108 comments Hey there awesome people! I'm a fairly new writer, looking to expand my platform. To do that, I've decided to offer free short stories on my blog--a new story on the last Tuesday of every month. I'll be writing mostly fantasy and science fiction, with overall themes ranging from silly to thoughtful and perhaps a bit creepy as well.

If you'd like to check that out, the first installment is available here: http://gracecrandallauthor.weebly.com...

Thanks for reading! :)

Grace Crandall | 108 comments New short story up on my blog!

Synopsis: when Kalli, a young pickpocket, swipes a watch from an unsuspecting bazaar merchant, she knows it could be her ticket to freedom. What she doesn't know is that it may also embroil her in a tangled web of war and espionage on the way.

Here's the link! Hope you all enjoy :)

Grace Crandall | 108 comments New short story! (also new blog, I've switched to the somewhat more navigable Wordpress) :)

DEATH WISH:

Jax Cortas is just your average criminal-turned-wish-granter. He doesn't complain about his job--he has sensible hours, a fulfilling environment, and his own private star.
Of course, the Star Foundation's repeated threats of execution don't exactly encourage dissent.
But while Jax is commissioned on pain of death with granting every wish that comes his way, not all wishes are good ones--and when his job calls upon him to become an assassin, Jax must find the wit and the will to walk the narrow line between kill and die.

Grace Crandall | 108 comments For Ramlin, getting robbed on his way to work is more of an inconvenience than a tragedy.
For Nargle, robbing travelers is an impersonal part of his daily business.

But as it turns out, the average-looking day holds something niether of them expected: attempted murder, a nasty case of identity theft...and worst of all, puns.

JUSTICE AND SANDWICHES, free to read here:
