My first short story, The Ballerina, is a year old. I self-published the story through Amazon KDP 1 year ago last week.
Between formatting and perfecting the cover artwork, it was almost the death of me. Quite a process but I made it.
Hats off to those of you self-publishing a novel.
Enjoy an excerpt from the story. I’ll post an excerpt from the Audible version later.
“She closed her eyes and danced as the train passed through Framingham and Worcester. She danced still as the train picked up speed for a final run from Springfield to Pittsfield.
A gentle touch on the shoulder alerted her that she was, indeed, in Pittsfield. She was home.
As she greeted her husband of 7 years at the station, she felt nothing. He, the painter, had wanted this all along. He had needed a wife and a mother for their two children.
The twins had been a handful for him. Her career had meant nothing to him. Yet, this homecoming was what they had agreed upon, and she never failed to keep a promise.”
