DEATH AND WAFFLES: A Short Story by Lish Bride, author of HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER

Matt’s childhood friend, Ashley, has been stopping by a lot lately. That might seem pretty normal, but Ashley died years ago and now she’s Death.

And tonight she wants waffles and fries.

INCLUDES AN EXCERPT OF HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER…

Sam leads a pretty normal life. He may not have the most exciting job in the world, but he’s doing all right—until a fast food prank brings him to the attention of Douglas, a creepy guy with an intense violent streak.

Turns out Douglas is a necromancer who raises the dead for cash and sees potential in Sam. Then Sam discovers he’s a necromancer too, but with strangely latent powers. And his worst nightmare wants to join forces . . . or else. 

With only a week to figure things out, Sam needs all the help he can get. Luckily he lives in Seattle, which has nearly as many paranormal types as it does coffee places. But even with newfound friends, will Sam be able to save his skin?

    It says NOVELLA

    Don't complain about how short it is. It says it's a novella. That means its shorter than a novel but bigger than a novellete. Its still a great story.

    Decptive title

    The title of this free book is really Death and Waffles. The Necromancer chapter is a tease of her book fot sale, which I have no problem with, but then advertise it as such.

    Loved the quirky humor

    Likeable characters - dry, quiet, sneak up on you humor - which then fishslaps you upside the head. A thoroughly enjoyable read - made me search out the second book and I'm waiting impatiently for the next to be published.

    Amazing!

    We all remember Ashley from Hold Me Closer, Necromancer and how she helped Sam out. Well, this is all about Ashley and what or who she left behind when cancer took her young life. It has death, and saddle shoes, and tragic little boys, and of course... waffles!!! I highly recommend it if you've read any of the HMC,N books.

    .

    This is actually quite good, filled with engaging characters and an easy read (which is apparently harder to write than the cringe-worthy stuff). Oh, and the lemon pervert really should quit advertising his/her/its kink.

    Okay

    The death and waffles short story was a good one, the next part of the book was a sneak preview of a new novel.

    I thought this was a pretty good prequel to HOLD ME CLOSER, NECR

    I thought this was a pretty good prequel to HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER gave me a good feel for where the story line and charactors were going
    Ended up purchasing HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER because of the Novella

    Great Idea, Poorly Executed.

    It had grammatical errors, and I think it actually had a spelling error or two. It was a good idea, but was poorly executed unfortunately.

    Great short story

    The story started out interestingly and lead up to excitment, then it was over. It was a teaser to the next book, like an introduction.

    Boring and incomplete.

    The short didn't feel like an entire story. It was more like a sample of the story. It promised me funny and scary but gave me niether.
