Free short story: Breakup

Breakup is a very short story that is now available free at all major retailers: https://books2read.com/breakup

This was originally included in Shape Shifters Vol 1 (now out of print), and is one of my favorite stories (and now one of my favorite covers, as well!). It is haunting and bittersweet, and I wrote it after trying to describe the sound of river ice breaking up in the spring.

(It won third place in a writing contest, but I always feel awkward saying that because I suspect it was one of those contests with three entries and is therefore pretty meaningless...)
