‘Too Many Candles’: Read my birthday-themed short horror story for this week’s Reedsy contest!

Happy Friday! I hope you’re all well! It’s been a great week, right? New music from Tool and everything! Anyway, to maintain tradition, I’ve submitted another story for Reedsy’s weekly contest!

As this is Reedsy’s 150th weekly prompt, the theme was that of ‘birthday’. Rather appropriate, don’t you think? Initially, I wasn’t sure where to take the story, but thoughts of cakes and candles set me off in the right direction… The title of my short story is Too Many Candles. You can read it here!

Enjoy the short read! And remember: always take a gift to a birthday party… you never know what might happen!

Have a good weekend!

P.S. As usual, I’ll be skipping Bite-Sized Horror today as I’m already posting. Check back for more two-sentence chills tomorrow!
