Happy “Tell a Story Day”!

Authors must love “Tell a Story Day,” as it’s the perfect opportunity to use fiction-writing to its fullest.

This holiday falls on the 27th of April, and it can actually pay homage to true accounts as well as fiction, as “story” can be defined as “a narrative, either true or fictitious, in prose or verse” (dictionary.com). It is also defined by the same source as something shorter than a novel, though that seems a bit odd, as a novel is just a long story.

But let’s stop digressing: It’s “Tell a Story Day.” This piece, a paranormal/spiritual fantasy, is a rather long one, but it’s the most recent one on this site. Because this is not “Force People to Read Your Story Day,” a summary is below, and you can decide whether it’s your cup of tea. 🙂


"The Nameless Fair" (short story series by Brenna Pierson)

Paren had searched everywhere for one particular lost soul. He was not in Limbo. He was not earthbound. He seemed lost in every sense of the word.

Being trusted with finding truly lost souls when they are at last ready to move on, she makes her way to The Nameless Fair, a sometimes gruesome carnival housing those who were lost both in life and in death.

Can Paren succeed among the fair vendors selling deep-fried legs and rides like the “Smotherer,” operated by phantoms? Only the support of a fellow spirit guide encourages her as she hunts through a fair filled with lost spirits and apathetic specters at every turn.
