So because I usually drop a topic here for a bit whenever I do something that feels worthwhile...(which reminds me I need to have that VN topic deleted sometime.The Sneaker Princess - Free DA VersionAmazon Ebook Listing - Not Quite Free But Pretty Close ;-P SummaryAn ill-intentioned whisper, a prayer for karmic justice, a muttered curse upon those who managed to completely ruin our day. Most people are guilty of this indulgence at least once in their lifetime. But no matter how alone you thought you were, no matter how quietly you voiced those words. They still escaped your confinement, wormed their way into the shadows, and graced the ears of sinister beings craving nothing more than to indulge them.
What should’ve been a routine end-of-term exam period for Kari spirals into a series of events that reshapes her view of reality forever. It all began innocently enough. Tales of a spiritual prankster, whose sole purpose is the theft of every heeled shoe on campus, drives Kari’s logical nature to dismiss the rumors as superstitious nonsense. But every theory needs evidence to be proven. If only it were ‘just’ a ghost at the end of this rabbit hole.

Obligatory 'proper' detailing aside. I honestly feel more comfortable just saying this is another one of my White Horror genre* creations. This time taking a small leaf from the original Red Shoes fairytale and extending it into an entire, for lack of a better word, pantheonistic concept. Basically if you like horror genre elements in a modern-era setting, without any of pre-teen pandering typical of current market writing, then this should be at least worth a glance. I did have quite a lot of fun writing this and it's probably my most extensive work to date.
*White Horror is what I define as the flipped coin of Black Comedy, something that is too absurd to be terrifying yet somehow manages to be so.
