My name is Sierra Rose and I wanted to talk about a Vella I’ve started publishing on Amazon. The story itself, small, is about a girl named Jade who survives an apocalypse and wakes up to a world larger than she could have ever imagined. I wrote this book initially for a competition called Camp NaNoWriMo, a challenge to authors to write 60,000 words within a single month. During this month, I started two books at this time, one of which is the Vella small that I’m publishing now. I was only 12 years old at the time, so my writing style and process has changed a lot since then.
The story is still very much a work in progress, but I’m hoping that by returning to this old book of mine I’ll become more comfortable with publishing. I’m not used to putting my work out there, and I’m more comfortable publishing this older story than I am with publishing any of my newer work. Small has some sci-fi elements, and I’m sure I’ll be introducing some minor horror elements in the story as well.
I have a different idea for a new book that I would like to work on, but that one will need to wait until I’ve filled out more of the outline and created a more concrete world for the characters to interact in. For now, I hope you’ll all be able to enjoy the story of small and the adventures of Jade in the new world she finds herself in.
