I’m so excited; Friday 18th July will see my new ‘coffee break’ short story hit the Amazon website thanks to Solstice Publishing. As most of you are probably aware I usually write fantasy novels but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to write in other genres. Of course I could always use a pseudonym (pen name) but I thought that because this is only a short story it wouldn’t upset my readers.
The reason why I brought out this story is one of two things. Firstly, I really wanted to show everyone that I am not a one trick pony. You see, authors don’t always get the chance to break away from what becomes their normal routine of writing and, I didn’t want to get stuck into the habit of worrying about what everyone else thinks.
Secondly, I find that most of us who enjoy reading don’t always have the time to read a full blown novel. However, some would still like to read something a bit more entertaining than what you might find in a weekly magazine.
Most of us haven’t the time to get absorbed into a good story whilst we have a break and a well earned cup of coffee. I’m exactly the same. When I’m at work, I look for something to do with my spare time so I usually scroll down Facebook’s newsfeed or jump onto Twitter just to idle away the minutes. Doing this doesn’t always satisfy my brain and I feel that I suffer from lacklustre; I clearly need something a little more engaging to occupy my mind.
This is when I came up with the bright idea of a light-hearted romance that would lift a reader’s spirits and hopefully amuse them too. I decided The Witching Hour would make an enjoyable 10 minute read and also make those precious minutes count.
It’s fun, it’s amusing and most of all its entertaining. If you find you have 10 minutes to spare and you would like to read a story with a happy ending then try The Witching Hour and I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.
