About Red Tash

I’m Red Tash. I write dark fantasy.

What is dark fantasy? It’s a cocktail of imagery from the most secret places of your mind. It’s scary, at times funny, imaginative, and simultaneously familiar. If you like Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, or Holly Black, you like dark fiction.

I have written fiction and poetry as long as I can remember. I hope you like it.

Disclosure: I picked this book up for myself when it was on free promotion on Smashwords. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis: A much-loved wizard takes a vacation to rural, fantastical Indiana, where he finds getting away from his work is harder than he thinks.

My Thoughts: Oh, so fun! There really is nothing I can tell you about the plot without spoiling it, as it is very short, but the book also contains information about her other books, a Troll or Derby preview, and the first 4 ½ chapters of This Brilliant Darkness. Plus it is free! Come on, you can’t go wrong—pick it up, check it out!

What a fun story – the `snot nosed toddler` was an adorable twist. How I wished when I was small that I had similar talents. If one opens their mind, it makes you wonder if there are really wizards walking around us along with children with special talents – we just don’t notice them. I love stories that travel into the supernatural world in this manner. Good job!

I also really enjoyed the other stories this ebook has to offer – it contains some really good pieces by several other writers (I want to read Undead Dixie Debs now) Reading this ebook was a pleasant way to spend the afternoon. Thank you!

Cracking little read, with plenty of laughs and knowing nudges to fans of fantasy, that really shows the author's light tough with the genre. A great way to while away a few minutes.

This was adorable. It was a candid (and accurate, IMO) depiction of what a wizard would be thinking if he visited the USA. I also liked the modern magic touches throughout. Someone's finally saying what we would actually do with magic if we had it in our power. Quick and cute read, for magic-heads like myself or family-storytime.
