NaBloPoMo 12th May “Far”

Please excuse one self congratulatory post, which does admittedly have the topic of ‘far’.

Although I’ve always written in my working life – policies, procedural manuals, customer communications etc – I only took the plunge into writing fiction about a year ago. And what a year that’s been – from getting two short stories published, several rejected, to self publishing 6 individual stories, 1 collection and a novella. Oh, and writing about 80,000 words on 2 novels on which my writing isn’t good enough to do justice to yet. But hopefully it will be, one day.

So I think I’ve come quite far in a year. But I’m under no illusions, I know there’s a long way to go in terms of improvement. But surely you should never stop learning?

So, just wanted to mention something that I’m really pleased with – my first novella ‘Adventures of a Girl Death Demon’ is now available in paperback on Amazon, as well as Ebook. And I did it all myself. Would be happy to have any comments or criticism if anyone has the time. It’s free on Kindle if you have Kindle Unlimited.

  1. congrats πŸ˜€ I admire your determination, and wish you all the success!!!!
    I love the cover of the book, but I am scared to think what the book just might be about… πŸ˜‰

    (btw I’m so fixed on literally taking the prompts , that I did not notice it can be taken lots of ways πŸ˜‰ for example I could have taken my 10k as a “far” as well :D)


    • Hiya, the book isn’t scary at allπŸ˜€ It’s about a human-like 20 year old who is abandoned at birth by her mother. She grows up not relying on anyone else, until she needs help with something, and has to trust and rely on others. So it’s a story of growth really, both for her and the person (another demon) who reluctantly helps her. I think it’s quite sweet.

      • when you say it that way – sure… but the title sounds scary! πŸ˜€ but probably to me only, I am not a reliable person though, I pretty much close my eyes any time anyone says “demons” πŸ™‚

  2. Congrats on your hard work and dedication! And, having read a little of your work so far, it’s obvious you’ve come a long way in a short time. Like you, I always wrote on the job for many years, and I finally started writing for myself in 1997. It’s added so much quality to my life!
