Amelia’s Call: A Change in my Direction

My first novella, ‘Amelia’s Call’,  has marked a change in my direction.

Previously, as a writer I had stuck to my usual formula of short stories and vignettes of generally light topics, and particularly love stories with indisputably happy-ever-after endings.

Not so, Amelia’s Call. That’s not to say that the ending is steeped in misery – it isn’t – but my feeling is that the reader is felt wondering, what would have happened if an unforeseen twist of fate had not turned Amelia’s (and husband Steven’s) life upside down.

In addition, this story addresses serious,  even controversial,  social issues. In that sense it isn’t a ‘safe’ story: and this is uncharacteristic of my writing.

Will my gamble pay off?

Are readers willing to sample ‘Amelia’s Call’? If so, will they enjoy it?

It’s early days yet, and believe me, I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
