Short Story Coming Soon?
Today, I’m speaking with you about a new book I’m working on. It’s another book of science fiction. This will be a short story that is a spinoff of “New Pangaea – Utopia of Revenge: A Rigid Dystopian Society in a Post-Apocalyptic World.”
My short story will be part of the series “Earth, Altered Existence.”
Hi. This is Kurt B. Ellis, a science fiction and contemporary fiction author who self-publishes with Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing.
Stay tuned, and let me share information about my latest project.
Creating the Short Story
I published my first book in March 2022. And now that I am at six months of sales, I decided also to write a parallel short story.
I love challenging myself with writing. So yesterday, I began my new project. And I am already about 60% done with the original draft.
Indeed, I still have a good bit of work cut out for me.
After I finish the draft, it will undergo a series of edits, followed by the decision on the title and cover.
I will then go through the formatting and publishing process of Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing.
What is the Short Story About?
This short story is a lighter side to my previous rigid, harsh dystopian fantasy in a post-apocalyptic world.
The short story is centered around the theme that humankind is inherently flawed and that people always find ways to make themselves feel superior.
And regardless of attempts by society to remove root causes to why one may feel superior, humans will naturally create another.
The plot is about an internal struggle with the main character, who is fortunate to ascend to a higher level of society. This character becomes haughty and arrogant. Unfortunately for the main character, she does not like herself. She has few real friends.
After her moment of reckoning, she learns that her behavior and way of thinking are flawed. She understands, for example, regardless of the way another person appears or what they do for a living, or what they have dealt with in life, that we should not judge.
She goes about changing her behavior. And people around her slowly evolve to like her. She finally creates genuine friendships.
At the end of the story, she is content with herself and goes about the rest of her life doing good for those less fortunate.
