Ten Hours Only


Hey, look, I published a book! Ten Hours Only, it’s 10,000 words long, and $10 to buy. It’s my first book, so I’m both excited, and worried about how well I did, but mostly surprised at how easy the whole process has been. I began writing it in April for Camp Nanowrimo (the first draft took me six days). And now it’s fully edited, formatted, with suitable cover art, and on Amazon. It’s strange that I can justย doย that, y’know? ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s a quick excerpt.

โ€œWhere are you taking me?โ€ I ask, without really expecting a reply.

Pete glances at me in the rear-view mirror. โ€œBack to your legal guardian, Tasha Miranov. In Lorren.โ€ He groans dramatically. โ€œThat’s one long drive. And it’s three in the morning!โ€

โ€œJa, and we didn’t even bring any coffee,โ€ says Sabrina, tightening her grip on the steering wheel as we head onto a near-deserted highway. โ€œTis a sad time we live in, working graveyard in Mirando with no caffeine. Not that Mirando is boring, far from it…โ€

She and Pete exchange a look, then they both sigh. I hunch down in my seat. The disturbed look on their faces unnerves me and I can’t help thinking there’s something about this town, something big, that isn’t right. And nobody will tell me what it is.

This idea still interests me – I’m going to write a follow-up book or two. Anyway, I’m bad at this self-promotion business. I’m not gonna say you should buy my book, but I would beย ecstaticย if you did! Thank you all! ๐Ÿ˜€
