This trio of troll tales is now available from Smashwords for a measly $0.99 each.

The Great Egg Hunt

Grandad Seth has a golden egg, his pride and joy, that he puts out every year to see in the spring. Only this year, while Seth and the grandkids are sleeping, his egg is stolen, by the Springtide Bunny. Unfortunately for the wily thief Seth's grandkids are Frank, Arthur, Norman and Stan, four strapping trolls with bad tempers and a taste for bunny.

Join the troll brothers as they encounter gnomes, dryads, dwarves, goblins and more bunny rabbits than they can reasonably manage, as they hunt the thief in the night and try to rescue grandad's treasure and find more than just golden eggs.


Trolympics

The games of the thirtieth Trolympiad are being held in Slag Valley and Lord Coal himself will preside over the opening ceremony, lighting the Great Torch and firing off the greatest sporting event in the troll calendar. But tickets are hard to come by, so when Herbert wins some in a bet, he and the family are off to Slag Valley like a shot. Only sport isn't the only thing on the agenda.

Join Herbert and Maude and their lad Horace as they experience the thrill of such sports as goblin putting, elf wrangling, dwarf lobbing and goat scaring in the Trolympic Arena, having the time of their life, until they discover the security ogres and the human terrorist threat.

Then the game is really on.

Blue Dragon Pie

Gordon wants to see his name over his own pie shop, by the sea. The only thing stopping him is a distinct lack of money. Instead he is stuck down Clag Alley, selling his wares from a barrow.

But the Razorback Mountains Pie Eating Contest might be the answer to all his problems. A thousand groats is up for grabs, but every celebrity troll chef in the mountains is having a go and Gordon needs that special edge if he is to stand a chance of winning the prize.

Gordon does the unthinkable and joins forces with humans, dwarves and elves in an attempt to hunt down a dangerous dragon. They want gold and glory. All Gordon is after is a pie filling, but he soon discovers that other species can be bad as trolls when it comes to deceit and treachery, in his quest to make a Blue Dragon Pie.

I've submitted these to Kindle Singles, not sure what the benefits are, but they take a couple of weeks to make up their minds anyway.
