Dark Spaces – My new book of suspenseful short stories

Dark Spaces by Dionne Lister

Drum roll… And now, I would like to announce, I have a new book out! Dark Spaces. This was a surprise to me. I had an idea that I wanted to gather all my short stories and a couple of my flash fiction and bundle them together in one collection. But I thought it would happen in a few weeks. When, all of a sudden, I was picking a cover photo and Amber Jerome-Norrgard was doing the writing on the cover (thanks Amber) I realised it was happening now!

I love my cover, and can’t believe it turned out so well. Amber can attest to that, as I’m very picky. After making her adjust the placement of the text a few times, she labelled the file “dionneanalretentive”. The cover lets you know what to expect: suspense, increased heart-rate, and some psychopathic characters.

Anyway, I found myself uploading the book to Smashwords and Amazon on a day that was not set-aside for this. Where did that come from? How did it happen? Hmm, maybe that’s fitting, seeing as it’s a book of suspenseful stories. As usual, I surprised myself. The next shock came when it was available on Smashwords approximately fifteen minutes after I pressed ‘publish’. I would have fallen over, had I not been sitting down, because I had two sales within fifteen minutes of going live!

I would like to thank the supportive peeps who have already bought my book. I hope you grab onto your e-readers, desperate to know what’s going to happen next, and I’m sorry if any of my stories make you cry.

So, I’m excited! I have two books out. If you had told me, a year ago, that I would have self-published two books by now I would not only have laughed, but called for someone to get you a psyche evaluation. Funny how life surprises us sometimes, isn’t it?
