Tattered Flower

cover for "Tattered Flower" a flash fiction by Annaliese Lemmon. It features a woman kneeling beside an empty cradle on a hillside.

Kamila followed the witch’s instructions perfectly and gave birth to a healthy baby girl. But there is a flower leftover from the spell constantly tempting her. She goes to the witch for advice, hoping it won’t cost more than she can afford.

This 715 word flash fiction was first published on The Arcanist in July 2019 and is available both in text and audio. I blogged an author commentary the same day.

A free e-book with story and commentary is forthcoming.
