Free Fiction Monday: Children of the Night

No one told Cammie about the children. She finds out on her sixth eradication. The fear in the little girl’s eyes, the horror at Cammie’s approach, brings on the dreams. She trained hard to become a vampire slayer, but now she questions everything. Her job, her motivations, even her own past.

“Children of the Night” appears in a different form in the novel Sins of the Blood.

    That was the best vampire story I’ve read in a long, long time. (Maybe ’cause it’s not really about the vampires?)

    Bravo, Kris!

    I regret to inform you that the “Send to Kindle” button(s) are still not functional. Perhaps Amazon broke something and another approach will be required. If you have an Amazon account with copies of the stories in your library perhaps you could lend us a copy for a week? I know my son loaned me a copy of one of his books, so the mechanism is there. I don’t know if there is any way to automate it or to deal with multiple copies.


    • In the short term, David, see Gnondpom’s comment on the other story. I’ll see what I can come up with for the longer term.

        The buttons still do not work for me either. I’ll copy-paste my way around here, in case other readers are stuck with this problem too. Just for the record, it also works for websites where there is no ‘Send to Kindle’ button, sometimes it can be helpful.

        Way around the ‘Send to Kindle’ button: just copy and paste the whole text of the story from your browser to a word-processor, save it as a .doc document and send it via email to your account.

        That’s a bit longer than just clicking a button but nothing too terrible.

      • Found out what’s going on, David. Apparently the Send to Kindle button hasn’t received an update for 2 years, and doesn’t work with the new versions of WordPress. I’m afraid I’m going to delete the plug-in. If anyone knows of another plug-in like Send to Kindle, let me know and I’ll use it. I can’t find any.

          Oh no, that’s too bad! That feature was very convenient!

          Unfortunately I have no knowledge of another plug-in of this type. I’ve tried the Send to kindle function that can be added to Firefox to do the same with any webpage, even without the button, but I got exactly the same result as with your button (turning wheel and nothing more happening). I guess it has not been updated either – or it is just another version of the same incompatible plug-in.

          In any case, thanks a lot for looking into it!
