Thirsty for Water by N. N. Light is #FREE May 6-8 #YA #Paranormal #ASMSG

Looking for a super-quick read this weekend? It’s your lucky day because our super-short story, Thirsty for Water, is FREE Friday through Sunday (May 6-8).

What’s it about?

Juliet can’t wait to graduate from high school and finally move on with her life. Five more days and she’s free. She gazes out the window while her history teacher, Mrs. Johnson, drones on about war, famine and lack of water in Africa.

A gong rings, startling Juliet out of her daydream. She looks around to see if it was one of her classmates pulling a prank when a little boy carrying a spear appears. Is he a ghost or something more? He pleads for her help and before she can argue, she is transported to a small village in Africa. History comes alive like never before and Juliet must decide how she can help Noko and his village before it’s too late.

Thirsty for Water tells the story of Africa and the need for water in an approachable way for children of all ages. A great learning tool for teachers, parents and libraries.

Here’s what readers have to say about it:

“A short but highly emotive story that makes me wish this sort of thing could really happen to snap many of us out of our comfortable complacency.
When you really think about it, it’s always the smallest person, or in this case, village, that gets left out.” ~ Chris Graham (otherwise known as Chris the Story Reading Ape)


This is an inspiring story of giving to others unselfishly. A high school girl, Juliet, while in her school classroom has a vision. Her teacher is talking about a young boy and the severe problems in his village. During this vision Juliet meets this young boy, Noko, who takes her to his village to show Juliet how he lives. Juliet is so shocked by what she sees that she announces in class that she will donate to the boy’s cause to bring water to his village. The other students join in because of her enthusiasm.

A lovely tale that touches the heart and brings tears to the eyes! I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this short story.” ~ Janice Spina

Author Biography:

N. N. Light is the husband-wife writing team, commonly known as Mr. N and Mrs. N.

Mrs. N. has been creating stories ever since she was little. Her grandfather remembers when she was two years old, she would stand at the top of the stairs and tell him a story filled with emotion (and in a language foreign to him) with her hands on her hips. Let’s just say she was a born storyteller.

They’re blissfully happy and loves all things chocolate, books, music, movies, art, sports, trains, history, cooking and baking. Their mantra is to spread the Light.

Most of the time you can find them on Twitter or getting new ideas on how to spread the Light on Pinterest. They’re a proud member of ASMSG, Independent Author Network and Marketing for Romance Writers.

In addition to being authors, they’re also book promoters/reviewers, social media marketers/influencers and the owners of N. N. Light Author Promotions. They both love books, have ever since they were young. Matching up books and readers is something that gives them great pleasure.

  1. hi there,

    i just finished a short while ago….I loved it…I had no idea just how short short would be when i started it, but what a lovely tale to teach & inspire.

    i feel strongly a connection being made always holds the best potential to calm & comfort & nourish, to move & inspire hope, insight change or instill lessons. And for me, i feel any kind of travel…time travel, dimension travel (i am a big of Twilight Zone!), or even a story with a “real” trip involved always helps to create that connection somehow.

    it was that quick…& true…once Juliet felt a personal connection to Noko…it was a done deal! so beautiful. The story was simple, yet so powerful.

    in my own humble opinion i think it’d make a great longer short story of sorts!!

    have a wonderful weekend.


    ps – I was wondering if i could ask a Twitter etiquette question of an experienced social media person? Im still trying to find my bearings, even after over a year on twitter!…..Im not fully understanding how to use it in its best ways nor always knowing proper protocol. If people RT your stuff do you thank each thru a TU tweet, OR, better to RT something of theirs as a courtesy, which I would guess is an even more welcome TU.

    I was OVERWHELMED by the response of your tweets….my phone buzzed all day yesterday…& still today as well …..I was so shocked. What a WELCOME surprise! I pd books go social for 3 months and dont think the TOTAL came anywhere near what your lovely followers did for me in one day. For me, the more who simply become aware of the story the better…& even tho books go social helped that thru advertising of sorts, UR tweets include a review so i feel are even more powerful than anything they might have done in helping continue to ripple it out. Ive got a long list of ur followers who RT’d it…I would LOVE & be so grateful if you would share your thoughts w/me re: the best way to say thx…its impt to me to thank each…even if only listed on a group thank you. would that be sufficient, or like i wondered…would most RT’rs prefer a RT of their own pinned tweets? Do most tweeters feel/do same? (if there were time traveling outer spacers…I bet theyd chuckle at the tweeter/twitter language!!)

    Any help would be wonderful! Im not a twitterer at heart, even tho I have beautifully embraced it for the book!

    thx to both of you!

    love & lite your way this wknd!
