Wow, nearly two months since my last post! Moving is now done, we're settling into the house, and I'm finally able to get some writing done again. Still a lot to do to get the house in order, but it's great to be back in front of the computer, typing out a few of all those ideas that's been churning around since early January.
Today I have a nice treat for you guys who happen to be visiting this site (here you go, Mom!) - a brand new short story I decided to call The Tunnel. The story was inspired by an event that actually happened to me and Siri a few years ago, while travelling through a deep undersea tunnel near where I grew up. We had an engine failure, and barely managed to get the car moving enough to get through to the other side. Now, from that incident, I started thinking "what if", and somehow a story grew out of it.
Now think about it, the next time you enter a tunnel, what if the world you find on the other side has changed into something you never expected? Would it be exciting? Confusing? Unbelievable? Your worst nightmare?...
The story will be available right here, for free, until published as an e-book on Amazon, Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords etc. in a few days. When published I'll remove the story from this site, but I'll post a link so you will be able to buy it. So enjoy the story, it's not long, just 3285 words (approximately 13 pages) and if you'd like to have the e-book or maybe even support my writing, I'd appreciate it if you decide to buy it as well! :-)
The Tunnel is avaliable from all major retailers. For convenience I'd recommend Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/The-Tunnel-ebook/dp/B007KQAK6Q/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1
If you live outside the "Amazon- territories", I recommend Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/138539
(Smashwords adds no extra fees, so the price you pay is the price set by the author. In this instance the price is only $.99!)
