I've written a new short story, and you can read it for free right here on my website, www.rachelkovaciny.com.
"Blizzard at Three Bears Lake" retells Goldilocks and the Three Bears as a western, with Mary Rose O'Brien from my book Cloaked as the heroine. But you don't have to know Cloaked to enjoy this story, though obviously it does kind of give away who survives to the end of Cloaked.
Adventurous, imaginative Mary Rose simply wants to explore a little more of the Wyoming mountains around her grandmother's ranch. She knows that once winter arrives, she'll be stuck at the ranch for months and months. She seizes her chance for one last autumn outing and heads for a beautiful lake her new friends have told her about. But a blizzard descends while she's out riding alone, trapping her in a cabin inhabited by three fierce and furry strangers.
Subscribers to my mailing list got this story for Christmas. If you want first dibs on stuff like this, but you haven't subscribed to my mailing list yet, you can do that on my website too!
Once you've read "Blizzard at Three Bears Lake," I'd love to hear what you think of it! You can tell me here on my blog or leave a review on Goodreads.
Happy New Year!
