One of my very first published short stories was “I Believe.” This was a tween story that was published as an audio story with Sniplits.
Story blurb: Twelve-year-old Samantha has always believed in unicorns, dragons and fairies, but when her new Junior High history teacher says she must put away her childish ideas, Samantha is determined to stand up for her belief in the unseen.
This story was narrated by Kailey Bell, who at the time, was in Chicago Theater. The audio book publisher, Sniplits, has closed it’s doors, but I was allowed to purchase the MP3 file with the rights back to my story.
For a limited time, I am offering “I Believe” as a free download on my website. “I Believe” runs eight minutes and is a great short story for tweens. If I was still teaching seventh grade, I would play it for my classes.
You can listen to “I Believe” on my website here. (It’s the second story on the list).
