Necromancer: A Novellaby Lish McBride In case you missed it, this Kindle freebie contains “Death and Waffles,” a companion story to the hilarious book Hold Me Closer, Necromancer.

If you haven’t read the book but enjoy fast-paced action and sarcastic dead-pan humor, I’d highly recommend it–my full review is on GoodReads if you’d like to check it out. This novella, which is currently free on Amazon, comes with a preview chapter for the book as well.
