Snowbound, a novellette, is Now Available

Novelette is such a strange word. Too long to be a short story, to short to be a novella, it sounds like the name of a character in some quaint French novel that might have been popular in 1897, but nobody remembers now.


Now's your chance to get in on the ground floor of the JA Ellis train. Mixed metaphors aside, I have just published my first anything, and I'm kind of excited about it. I'd be even more excited if someone bought it, (hint, hint).

The storm of the century is beginning, and Charlotte is ready to wait it out by herself. But once the snow starts falling, and the lights go out, she begins to realize she's not alone. Strange creatures are prowling around her house, and as the snow piles up, Charlotte must find a way out, before they find a way in.

Snowbound is now available for download at Amazon and Smashwords for $.99. I hope you enjoy it.

  5. That is so cool. It is always awesome to get our ideas out there. Good luck with it.

  6. Ooh! This sounds like a thrilling little snippet -- something I'd consume in a heartbeat (or while waiting at the doctors office). Done and done! Happy 2014. =)
