Next up on the publishing list: “Mummy Powder”.
I don’t know if this 6,700-word story qualifies as Dark Fantasy or Horror, but it’s definitely a little more chilling than my usual production. A version of it first appeared as a web serial on a previous version of my blog waaaaay back in summer of 2012, where it had a few happy readers. As I move further down the indie publishing road, I intend to call back those stories I’ve sent into the wild, maybe give them a quick re-polish and a nice cover, and set them free again. “Mummy Powder” is the second of those. (“Babysitting the Taran-Saurus” was the first.)
Reading it again, I still like this story quite a bit and hope it will find a fresh audience.
To maybe whet your appetite, here’s the “cover” copy:
There’s a tremendous amount of money to be made in ancient Egyptian artifacts.
There’s a tremendous amount of danger involved in curses if you believe in them, and sometimes even if you don’t.
Displeasing a resurrected ancient pharaoh holds a terror all its own.
And here’s the cover:
Just in case the feature image thing doesn’t work.
Prep is done. Some uploads and it should be available as an ebook next weekend.
Be well, everyone.by
