Free Fiction Monday: The Life and Deaths of Rachel Long

When Devon discovers Rachel Long’s music for the first time, it changes him. Her music inspires people. It draws crowds to her, no matter where she performs. But it draws something else, as well. A longing. A compulsion. A need. And for Devon, Rachel’s music creates an inevitability that he can’t escape, no matter how hard he tries.

    Damn, Kris! Just … damn! That is the finest piece I have ever read about music. And just one of the finest stories I’ve read, period. So beautiful.

    I came to this page via a link on LuckyBat. It’s the first of your writings I’ve ever read. You can bet it won’t be the last. Beautiful and haunting, as Tanith says. Thank you.
