The Life and Chaos of a Retired Old God - Short Story Collection

Being retired was supposed to be easy. No drama, no family, no problems. Considering Ernie is a god, he should have known better.

In this collection of short stories, Ernie struggles to live a quiet life as Death loses his scythe, a genie wants a holiday, and Ernie’s family keeps dropping in. Then there’s Ragnarok. Because who doesn’t need an end-of-the-world event to keep things calm and quiet?

But it doesn’t stop there. This collection contains a brand new bonus short story where Ernie is asked to mediate a feud between Dragons. With tensions running high, maybe the poker game hadn’t been the best idea.

Also included in this collection are a series of flash fiction originally published on my blog. Follow Ernie as he deals with Cupid shooting the wrong person, Wererabbits for April Fools, Santa stuck in the chimney, and what happens to snowmen when the weather changes.

The Life and Chaos of a Retired Old God is a collection of humorous short stories where Ernie learns that quiet is the last thing he’s going to get.

Now You Are in Trouble!: or Where did all the toilet paper go? Flash Fiction

My contribution to this free collection is Trail of Carnage. I had a lot of fun writing this little story and reading the other stories in this anthology.
