Some of you may have already read my novella “Some Kind of River.” It was originally published by Torquere Press @ 2008 and sold as an ebook through them as well as through Barnes and Noble Nook.
The rights recently reverted back to me, and I’m currently in the process of tweaking it a little bit, having a new cover designed, and I’ll soon make it available as an ebook on Kindle. I’ll probably make another story available with it, so hopefully you’ll feel you’re getting your money’s worth! 😀
For those of you who don’t know about this story, here’s a synopsis:
Kayaker and grad student Dez spends her summers working western whitewater as a river guide. A few of those summers she’s spent with buddy Melanie (Mel), also a kayaker and guide. Dez figures the crush she’s had on Mel will eventually fade, but when she arrives in Idaho for her summer guide gig and sees Mel again, she knows the crush will be tougher than she thought to kick. After all, no way would she ruin a perfectly excellent friendship by admitting her attraction. Besides, Mel has a crush on someone else, right? But a rowdy game of Truth or Dare leaves Dez more confused than ever, and wondering if she pushed things too far.
Kayaking, river rats, and a western summer. If that’s up your alley, you might want to give this a looksee. I’ll let you know when it’s ready. I’m hoping to get it up before Christmas. 😀
Okay, that’s today’s update. Happy Wednesday!
I have to say that i’m definitely happy to hear this news. “Some Kind of River” was one of the first things you’d written that i’d gotten my hands on and it’s still my favorite. I’ll be glad to see it available for the kindle.
Well, thanks, Cameron. Appreciate that! I’m trying to get it up and running. Stay tuned!
Hope this foray into indie publishing is productive! 🙂
Don’t know. Given that it’s not a novel-length work (Torquere publishes various length things, it made sense to place it there at the time), it’s difficult to place with a traditional publisher. But given that this story does have a track record (people seem to like it), hopefully it’ll hold its own. And the cover, I think, is kinda cool. Torquere’s cover didn’t really tell you what it was about, and I’m one of those people who thinks covers should evoke, to a certain extent, what might be beyond it, y’know? Thanks for the good wishes! I’m open to tips!
Woohoo! Sounds great, Andi. I’ll look forward to reading it.
