Well, this story took me back – literally! I’ve always known “something” about Petra’s past. This short novel fills in the blanks.
Petra possessed? Oh, my! How is she ever going to get out of this one?
Well, she is possessed but it’s taking a little longer than planned. Apparently “possession” requires a little more time to prepare and publish than I had anticipated. Are evil spirits at work? Or did I simply bite off more than I could chew?
Yeah, I’m going with evil spirits!
Anyway, what should have been me having a little fun for Halloween, has turned into a bigger project. But if you’re curious, here’s the book page for the stand-alone novella The Cave, and the usual Amazon link to go check it out.
However, if you need a Halloween read and you haven’t tried The Witch Family Robinson series of short stories, then might I suggest taking a chance on Witch Bluff this Halloween. It’s a very different story in a very different style. I actually wrote it for Jane. And then I wrote another. And, what do you know? I wrote one more after that.
Yeah, I know. I go a little nuts sometimes.
I’ll leave you there as I’d better get back to it!
Yep, going to get in trouble with this one, but if you’ve ever wondered what might happen if Petra turned evil… well, this is that story! The Cave is a stand-alone, alternative, and, hopefully, a slightly scary story from Greenland for Halloween.
I love Halloween. In fact, so much, I was inspired and compelled to organise (together with an equally crazy colleague) Greenland’s first Zombie Walk in Nuuk in 2012. We were in the newspaper (link to KNR in Greenlandic), and even had a spot on national TV. More on that later! 🙂
The Cave is 0.99 until the day of release (Amazon link). So you can always grab it for not a lot of money, you know, if you dare! 😉
Done! It’s live today! Crocodile Beat (Amazon link) is a slightly different Greenland Missing Persons novel. As I mention in the introduction, I wanted to explore a story in the series that wasn’t told through Petra’s POV. Crocodile Beat is that story.
It was a blast to write, and is the usual fast-paced story with plenty going on, without too many twists.
It’s plug and play, folks. I hope you have fun with it!
Oh, and there’s a good chance I might have left a certain motive hanging, just for fun. You’ve been warned. 😉
Here’s the Amazon link again.
Here’s the Author’s Note for The Ice Breaker Quandary. I think it accurately describes what you’re letting yourself in for if you read this story.
The Ice Breaker Quandary is a short story featuring Constable Petra Jensen. It fits into the Greenland Missing Persons series, but can be read independently of that series.
You might recognise some additional characters, but this short story also introduces David ‘Dave’ Bennett, and was written as part of a reward for a Kickstarter campaign.
One word of warning… given the nature of this high stakes story, Petra is a little more intense than usual. And if this is your first introduction to Petra, well… Yeah, okay, I’ve got nothing. Good luck!
The Ice Breaker Quandary takes the Greenland Missing Persons series to a whole new level of quirkiness. Normal quirkiness (and a darker tone) will resume in the next book in the series.
Moving south to Nuuk, here’s a photo from February (2013). The apartment block is one of five in a row in Qinngorput, a new (at the time) area in Nuuk across the fjord from the city centre. I took the photo from my balcony in an identical apartment block.
When I needed a place for Petra to live in Nuuk, it made sense to put her in my apartment. So this was her view looking to the right from her balcony.
