“Dim Mirrors” Now Available!

Dim Mirrors, a collection of 39 flash fiction stories by yours truly is now available for download on Noisetrade Books! The stories are mostly fantasy, including some fiction set in the world of Airtha-Eyrassa, in which my current WIP is set.

Dim Mirrors is a collection of 39 flash fiction stories penned by Carin Marais. They range from the comical “Not According to Plan” to more serious and introspective works like “Blue Ribbons” and “The Destroyer of Worlds”. Her liberal and creative use of mythology and folkloric elements comes to the fore in stories like “The Souls of Trees” and “Ariadne’s Freedom”. A number of stories in this collection, including “Life on Canvas”, “Charms of Ash”, and “Shadows”, are set in her own secondary world of Airtha-Eyrassa.

What is Noisetrade Books?

Noisetrade is a platform where you can download books and music for free (legally) and leave a “tip” if you want to.

So… I can get it for free? As in mahala?

Yup. I would love it if you shared the links and spread the word. Any tips will go towards a top secret project which will see the light in August. Okay, it will be top secret until I post the blog post about it.

What are you planning to do with my email address?

Bury it in a vault where no one can access it but me. At the moment I don’t have a newsletter, so you won’t suddenly start receiving a bunch of mail from me. When I do have a new collection available, I’ll let the list know first, though. But that is it. And I think it’d be cool to see where in the world my readers find themselves.
