Publisher's Summary

August Hayling went west following the discovery of gold in California. While most prospectors were hoping to strike it rich, August was more interested in a place big enough to let him get lost. Sitting alone in a saloon, he is approached by a peculiar man named Georgios Cappadocia, who offers August a fortune in gold if August will come along and help him fetch it.
August soon learns that his strange new employer is engaged in some kind of ancient dispute. And when they arrive at their destination, both men will realize that not all treasures are golden - and sometimes destinies can be changed.

A delightful twist on an old tale...

I love the different worlds and imperfect characters that Kim Fielding creates. The Tale of August Hayling is a perfectly-crafted short fantasy story of only thirty-five pages. It’s historical in the sense that it’s set in California at the beginning of the Gold Rush, yet it’s anything but historical as it draws on legend and mixes in some paranormal elements to give an old story a very new twist. It’s like a tall tale a character could be telling in one of the Wild West saloon bars. There are splashes of humour that will make you chuckle and an uplifting hint of a HEA.

I think Kim Fielding and K.C. Kelly are a match made in heaven. He narrates her stories superbly and only enhances this already enjoyable tale. A highly recommended short listen.

And what’s more, all the royalties from the sale of this story will go to the charity, Doctors Without Borders.
