I recently wrote two short stories for Dreamspinner Press based on prompt words offered by readers. The readers could select me as the author, select a pair of my Dreamspinner characters, choose a word, and be entered into a drawing to have their story written. Since I only have one Dreamspinner story at the moment, Another Healing, James and Ambient got to feature in both stories.
I don't know who my winners actually are, but I loved the words they picked. "Shining" and "Friends" both immediately sparked plot bunnies. If you see this, thank you SO much for the inspiration and the chance to write these stories. I really, really enjoyed it. And I am so honored to have had the opportunity. Thank you for choosing me.
You can read the first story on the Dreamspinner Press Blog now. The prompt word was "Shining," and the title of the story is "Pup."
Both stories take place a few months after the conclusion of Another Healing. It's now summer, and Ambient and James are well into their training as a witch/demon pair.

I'd love to know what people think of it!
