I am currently at the office looking out the window and it’s raining. It’s not like the day when I told you about my summer vacation and how it was like by the ocean at 9 pm. No, it’s nothing like that. The sun hasn’t been around for a long time, and the dark clouds are surrounding me.
I am so happy with my new office. I am more creative outside, no doubt about that, but I do most of my writing when I’m in my office. And now, I’m finally finished with my first short story for the Kindle. The story is based on Suspense and Marketing – My Easter Experiment (I started writing when I was on vacation in Denmark during Easter). But the story ended up being very different.
The reason I started out with suspense in mind was probably because I’m also writing a novel about a serial killer (I’m writing it in Norwegian). But, the short story is more or less an experiment on how it’s like to publish my own stories on Amazon. This is not a project to make money, not at all.
I am actually not sure if I should tell you that much about the story. It might ruin your experience. Let me just give you the brief description, the one I used at Amazon:
Bill wakes up to a voice that sounds all too familiar. But it can’t be. His head is hurting, he can’t move his arms or legs. And the voice keeps saying; dad, we’ve got 17 minutes left.
I have added some familiar names to the story. I have added names like Bill, Ruth, Mark, Adrienne, Carolyn and Ben. I won’t tell you who they are, but if you’ve been around my blog for awhile you probably know who they are.
I have received some awesome help from several friends. I want to mention two people you’re already familiar with. Carolyn Nicander Mohr read the story and helped me correct a few things, and her feedback was very helpful. Craig McBreen designed the cover and I couldn’t have asked for better help and support.
Fuzzy is available for free
The name of the short story is fuzzy and the price is set to $0.99, but it’s available for free for five days. Please download it now, I want you to have it for free. I’d love feedback and a review at Amazon.
Remember, this is my first story, and I am Norwegian. English is not my first language. But, I love writing, and I am doing my best. And I will get better, that’s a promise.
PS. If you don’t own a Kindle, you can download the Kindle app and use it on many different devices like on an iPad, your smartphone, or your computer.
