ParaDice Point: A Mystery Serial [Free Short Fiction]

As part of the 13 Week Streak, I have been writing a new serial story that follows a private investigator as she searches a small town called ParaDice Point for clues in the disappearance of a couple of teenagers.

Here’s the next installment (and a refresher if you missed one).

13 week streak

13 Week Streak

The prompts come from Thain In Vain and Drafty Devil each week. Streakers have 500 words or less to come up with a great tale, and everyone votes at the end to see who has come up with the best story.

Fun, right?

This serial was born from several of the prompts (along with some others, like one from Our Write Side and another from JC Cauthon), and will continue until its sticky end.


Farrah Basking, P.I.: ParaDice Point

Part 1: Fast Car

Farrah is a private eye called in to investigate the case of two missing teenagers, and she worries there may be more to their disappearance than meets the eye.

Part 2: Carnies

When she finds out a traveling carnival showed up the day the teens went missing, she has to turn over that stone before she can follow up with her suspicions.

Part 3: Sight to See

Farrah gets a tip from an unlikely source on where the kids might be.

Part 4: A Tooth for a Tooth

Things get messy with a child’s discovery on the pier and Farrah wonders what she has gotten herself into.

Things are speeding up for Farrah as she closes in on what is actually going on in this small town. Has this story got you in its clutches yet?
