Episode 1 release day!

Happy Friday, y’all! Today’s the big day. The day Episode 1 of Fire in the Mountains is released on Kindle Vella.

First, the story. Fire in the Mountains is intended to be a romantic thriller. John Smith became Chief of Rocky Gap's police department after a tragedy in the big city ruined his future. He left the trauma behind for fresh air and mountain views, burying himself in his new work. Cassie Walker came home to Rocky Gap to help her dad run the family diner after her mother's passing. Nothing ever happened here, and she didn't think a few years would change that. She was wrong. The two of them stumble into a bigger plan, and John's past is now his present.

If you like your romance with a slight edge of excitement, check it out. It’s going to be an ongoing story, with the hope that we can release similarly sized episodes every week. Serial writing returns!

It’s the first time in a long time that DLS Publishing has released something new, and this format, while somewhat familiar, is difficult to plan for. I have the usual worries that a writer has. Did all the errors get caught? Did I format it properly? And, of course, the ever present Is this a giant pile of crap?

I’m relatively confident in the answers to all three, and for the last one, my fellow writers, I am sure you have read books that were horribly written and should have never seen the light of day, and yet they were still, somehow, traditionally published. If you know what I’m talking about, then you can reassure yourself with the knowledge that your writing, even on your worst day, will never be that bad.

So, armed with that knowledge, I am looking forward to the release of Fire in the Mountain, even as I feel nervous about it. The first couple episodes are going to be released for free to give people a chance to get a feel for the story, the writing, and, of course, the characters. So check it out and see what you think. If you like it, leave a review and let me know what you liked about it and what you’d like to see moving forward.
