The Ranch

a novelette By:
The Ranch

Coaxed off the highway, miles away from civilization, two people struggle against an unfathomable horror, and a terrible truth, that lies at The Ranch.


**This is an excerpt from my novel series, “Guardians of the Gates.”  It functions as a story within itself, even out of context, and I thought it could be a fun read on its own, or perhaps just a good tease for the series.  Enjoy!

I had to fix the formatting because most folks were only reading the Bookrix "reading sample" which was only 7 pages. Although I don't care for Bookrix's formatting, I caved and did Bookrix's formatting, and now the whole thing is available to read in all formats. Enjoy!
And apologies for the confusion.

I always thought this part of my novel series was enjoyable on its own, and I thought it would be fun to put it out there as its own novelette.
If you enjoy it, you may like the rest of the story in the "Guardians of the Gates" series, yet to be released.

*I also have a Kindle version of this. I'll try to find a way to make that available. Stay tuned.


Kindle version available here, if needed:!ArG9RAWRrJ7Vi00nNKsJGia-cnIX


It's a tease for sure but I don't know if I would call it a novellette. It is well written and interesting. I like it :D


Thank you!
I had to research to know what to call it.
Short story = under 7500 words.
Novelette = 7500 - 17499 words.
Novella = 17500 - 39499 words

Its 12100 words.

I'd never heard of novelette before.
