New Short Story--Emily Kane in Nepal, in search of the Mountain Gods
The High Road to the Mountain Gods
I just published a new short story--about 13k words--as a new installment of the Emily Kane Series. It's available now for $0.99.
The story takes place in Kathmandu, where Emily travels after high school graduation. She's looking for some kind of spiritual renewal after the violence she experiences in her senior year. And she's also seeking some respite from the attentions of her "Granny,"Amaterasu, the Goddess of the Sun. Perhaps she can hide out from her in the crowded pantheon of the Hindu gods.
Things start to get sticky when a little orphan boy who idolizes her begins to attract the attention of some not so nice folks. Emily thinks she can protect him, at least for a little while, if it comes down to that. But can she also teach him how to avoid fighting with the bullies at school?
The High Road to the Mountain Gods is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.
