The Woman Behind The Curtain – published!

I had some trouble (eh, I made a really stupid mistake) yesterday when I wanted to publish my Tora Skammelsen short story. But now it is there, and I hope it will be well received out there in the big world.

The Woman Behind The Curtain – $ 0.99 for 40 pages – that is not bad, is it?

Woman behind Curtain

Vibeke Svendsen was standing up there with her hand on the white bedroom curtain which she had just drawn back. Their eyes met across the street and Vibeke took an abrupt step backwards so you could not see her from the window.

For a second Tora was dumbfounded. Then she straightened her back and trudged past Henrik and Irene’s dark windows. She had no idea what her mother had told the neighbours, and she realized that she didn’t care. Vibeke was definitely more neurotic than Tora, and not nearly as good at hiding it. Neurotic and prissy, and almost as pedantic as her wizened lecturer husband. Their marriage must be a match made in heaven.

  1. Dorte, yours is the first Scandinavian (crime) fiction I ever read and “The Woman Behind the Curtain” is going to be my third one and I’m looking forward to it.

    Oh, I am thrilled to have rediscovered your blog — were you AWOL for a while, or was I simply looking in the wrong places — and I look forward to catching up on what you’ve been up to. We used to chat frequently when I had another blog — years ago — and now I have begun a new blog at Crimes and Detectives, Inc.

    I hope we can renew our long-distance blogging acquaintance. R.T.

    • Lovely to hear from you again!
      Yes, I have been AWOL, and I am not really a regular blogger any more. It’s just that I have some amazingly kind and loyal readers who want to hear it when I publish something new or have other good news to share – I really can’t disappoint such good friends, can I? 😉

  5. Yes, with pleasure 🙂
    Blogging was a great hobby; I only stopped because I realized it stole too much writing time (I have concentration problems so I try to spend my best hours writing crime fiction).
