Reading can be a transformative experience. Any story, whatever genre or purpose, has the potential to show new perspectives. Perspectives you can't capture in a price tag. That is why my ebooks are free: they are a present to you, dear reader. I hope you enjoy them!
"Chris Chelser writes dark paranormal fiction about ghosts, monsters, history and the human soul. Preferring dark stories to ‘happy ever after’ since she was a child, she began writing in her teens and never stopped. She lives in the Netherlands with her family and the demons under the bed."

Bedtime Stories of a Different Kind
27 short stories, none more than five pages: their titles short, sharp and to the point. Each story was headed by a drawing of an appropriate tarot card, the book’s title already pointing to mysteries and/or cards in a tarot pack.
At first I thought all of the stories would be set in some mystical medieval alternate universe. Quite on the contrary. I was taken into the time before our time, into more recent historical settings, into the present and the future. Chelser took me on a ride not only through time but also through space, settings, situations.
Some stories baffled me, others left me uneasy, but none left me unaffected. Each of them gave me a different perspective. I find it a sign of a good writer when they can take me into new worlds within the space of a few pages, and make me curious as to what might have happened before the setting of the story begins.
I am not sorry to have downloaded the book, and might even suggest it to a friend who likes these kind of short stories.
