News – Ba’byl, a short story, is now available on Amazon

cover for Ba'byl, by Rae Botsford End

“Ba’byl” is a strange little story I wrote a few years ago about a traveler who visits a dying kingdom and has a conversation with the queen who built it. I rediscovered the story in my files this year and fell in love with my own work—which, as any writer can tell you, is a rare and wonderful event—so I had a couple of people give it a fresh look, then tweaked it a bit to prepare it for publication. My plans for a glorious watercolor cover fell apart, so I resorted to graphic design and I’m actually pretty pleased with the end result.

At last, as of today, “Ba’byl” is available for purchase as an ebook on

If you don’t have a Kindle, you can use the Kindle app on your tablet or smartphone, or use Kindle Cloud Reader to read it directly in your browser. And if you’re subscribed to Kindle Unlimited, you can actually read it for free (for now).

I look forward to your reviews! I think…
