I am super proud to say that as 713 closes out its week-long free promotion I have lived in a place where happy thoughts are allowed to dwell. #1 in U.S Short Stories, #1 in Urban Fiction, #5 in Crime Fiction and overall, #74 on the Kindle Best Seller market. The reviews have all been great as well with the only complaint being that it was too short.
Which technically isn’t a complaint, considering that it’s technically a ‘short story.’
It does make me sit down and think about everything I’ve written though. Why? It didn’t really take much thought for me to write it. I sat down at one in the morning, burnt out on sleep and bored when I started to write it. I was finished by lunch. Much unlike Everything That Glitters, which took me a few years and Last Seen clocked in at about two months.
Maybe I don’t have to think as hard as I once thought I did in order to produce a decent story? Afterall, I am the self-proclaimed Queen of over-analyzing things. Maybe this is a lesson for me to just let the story tell itself and flow from my brain like I know it can.
Either way, I have been convinced enough to write 2 more parts in a short series that expand on 713, which can only be titled 832 and 281; both of which dive deeper into Vivica’s relationship to The Man (who will remain nameless until after the series completes). Though I meant 713 to be a stand alone, I find the response for more exciting, and well, I don’t have anything else better to do with my time. So, stay tuned for updates on those!
