Two and a bit years ago, when I started taking this writing thing seriously (after a lifetime of being a wannabe writer but never putting the work in!) I wrote some terrible stories, some mediocre stories and some that floated between the two.
Then, I wrote ‘Warding.’
I think every writer has that first piece that they write and think: “Okay, I’m onto something here.”
‘Warding’ was mine.
Written off the back of seeing the compelling submission call for Below the Stairs: Tales from the Cellar, I submitted the story and – in spite of the length of the tale (around eleven thousand words) – Steve Dillon of Things in the Well opted to take a chance on me and my tale.
And that was my first step toward being a ‘real’ writer.
I’m still new. Still learning all the time. Still improving. But still proud of ‘Warding’, too.
As such, I commissioned a piece of cover art, by Graphics in Design and set about writing some author notes and a short introduction so that, two years later, I could get ‘Warding’ back out into the world.
So here it is, for just 99p/99¢ or a similarly low price, depending upon your territory as well as being available for FREE on Kindle unlimited. I hope you enjoy it.
