My blog now has its very own page on my website! 🙂
I came up with the idea for this story while doing historical research for a novel set in the American West. Saloon and dancehall girls, who ‘respectable’ ladies considered to be one step above prostitutes, were employed to entertain men in the bars and keep them drinking, dancing, and spending money. There were very few ways for women to make a living in that time and place, and I found myself intrigued by what their lives must have been like. And so I wrote about Nelle, a young woman who’s good at keeping the miners in town entertained – even when they can’t dance. 🙂
The next bundle I’m organizing is The Haunted bundle, a collection of 20 ghostly tales. It will be available February 1st on BundleRabbit. In the meantime, check out the bundle’s Facebook page, where I’m posting fun – and often spooky – articles about ghosts and hauntings.
I have stories out in four other bundles right now:
