A couple of years ago, as part of a screenwriting challenge--where one is given a few prompts to come up with a short script--I had written this story. It has stayed with me and when I told a friend about this script, she said, 'Why don't you turn it into a short story?'
Though I had thought that fleshing out a six page screenplay would be difficult, as it turned out, once I started writing, the words flowed. Since the storyline was already in place it took me just a couple of days to finish a draft of about 2500 words. A couple of revisions and edits later, it was good to go.
This is the first time I have turned one of my scripts into a book--and it has been an experience that I would not mind repeating.
The story revolves around two brothers. When a reluctant Anand Khalap agrees to meet his estranged brother Raj, he has no idea that he will finally uncover the mystery of the death of his beloved Shelly. Will it bring them the closure they need?
If the blurb intrigues you, I hope you will grab a copy of the ebook from Amazon. Do leave a review if you read it. Would also love to know your thoughts about short stories -- are you a short story reader or do you prefer long stories?
