The last week of 2012 ended with the achievement of a personal milestone, when I published my first Kindle eBook. They Don’t Talk About It is a collection of ten flash fiction stories centred around a loose theme of imperfect relationships (Is there any other kind?).
They were originally written over a period of about six or seven years, the earliest being “Unspoken”, which was penned while I was studying for high school exams. So if you’re up for a little light reading and willing to part with about a dollar, you can download They Don’t Talk About It from the Amazon Kindle Store.
I know that’s somewhat limiting to owners of other eReaders (or non-owners of eReaders), but if you don’t have a Kindle you can read it on your computer, smartphone or tablet by downloading the appropriate free app. And it’s a quick read.
No pressure, though… I won’t be offended if you don’t buy it or it’s not your cup of tea. 😉
Update (June 2013): They Don’t Talk About It is now available in other eBook formats via Smashwords.
I didn’t include an Oscars-style speech in my book — It seemed a tad over the top for a small 99c bundle — but I would like to make mention of a few people now.
To Book Graphics for designing the cover. Thank you for making a blurry vision reality.
To all the amazing writers and readers I’ve met online, especially the #FridayFlash community on Twitter for taking the time to critique me over the past two years. It’s a long road to becoming the writer I want to be and I’m not there yet but I’m gradually learning and improving. Special thanks to Icy Sedgwick, whose photo prompt “Mandrake” inspired “Living on a Lie”, and Chuck Allen, who was the first person to give me feedback on my writing when I started dipping my toes into the #FridayFlash scene.
Here’s to a beautiful, insane, creative, productive 2013! 🙂
