After years of digging, anthropology student Blake Meier is about to strike pay dirt.

“Wendigo,” by bestselling author M.G. Herron, is free on this website for one week only. The story’s also available as an ebook or paperback through Amazon.

If you’re looking for a delightful little Halloween treat, check out my urban fantasy story, Magick Mirror.
