to the Mythos World
Cursed to darkness,
a shapeshifting gryphon makes a wish for freedom.
She shows up instead…

Due to its short length, this book didn’t require much research (although the locations of Kala’s apartment and resort job are true to life). However, unknown to most, this story was originally written to participate in a “themed” anthology, with the theme of Mistaken Identity (thus, the idea of a mis-delivered package).
The anthology had an extremely limited word-count cutoff, which is part of the reason for this story’s short length. (Anyone who knows Jami’s blog knows that she doesn’t write short naturally!) After the anthology fell through, Jami expanded the story, adding several thousand words, and released it as the meet-cute introduction to the Mythos story world we all know today.
Another aspect that adds fun to the story-behind-the-story is that after this book’s release, Jami became friends on Facebook with the cover model, Sean Smith, and he’s even been kind enough to boost her promotion efforts.
