Being forced to take a day off feels like a punishment when all you want is a little adventure.

Ian Kitley and LA Harper formed a close-knit writing and editing team in the early days of the pandemic. Since then, they have been working together to push each other in their endeavours to craft tales and eventually reach the vaunted heights of publication. Together with several others, they form the Inkwell writing collective (https://disboard.org/server/790367306189373440), publishing monthly short story anthologies, available through Amazon for the low price of nothing, and generally having a good time doing what they love. They can both be found and followed on Twitter at https://twitter.com/IanKitley and https://twitter.com/LAHarper10.

"Day Off" is a collaboration between the two authors. The world is the creation of Harper and features the main character, Cerylia, of her upcoming dark fantasy novel 'The Four Pillars'. Kitley turned his skill with words towards crafting a prequel to that epic tale, and showing that our fae protagonist is not all hard shell. If you liked this, pick up the third Inkwell anthology, 'Early for Eternity' (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09418Y52P), for an excerpt from the novel and a glimpse at another side of Cerylia's world.

---- About Tall Tale TV ----

My name is Chris Herron, and I narrate audiobooks.

In 2015, poor control of my diabetes left me legally blind for the better part of a year. The doctors predicted an 80% chance I would never see again, but I changed the way I was living and through sheer willpower beat the odds.

During this time I couldn't read or write. Two things that I had been turning to for comfort since I was a small child. With the sheer amount of stress I was under, this was devastating. My wife took me by the arm, lead me into the local library, and read out titles of audiobooks to me. I chose the audiobook versions of books I had loved such as the Disc World series, Name of the Wind, Harry Potter, and more. They brought my favorite stories to life in ways I never thought possible and helped me through the darkest time of my life.

Once my vision recovered, I maintained a love for audiobooks. I decided I would turn my focus from being a writer to becoming a narrator. I devised Tall Tale TV as a way to help out all the amazing authors in the writing communities I had come to love before my ordeal.

I created Tall Tale TV to help aspiring authors by providing them with a promotional audiobook video. A way to showcase their skills with the written word. They say the strongest form of advertisement is word of mouth, so I provide a video to a platform of readers to help get people talking. Help them spread the word.
