A Song for Old Nel is finally finished!
I started this project intending to write a short story, but the result is a fair bit longer than I planned (almost double, in fact) and is more of a novella at just under nine thousand words. It is set in the same world as The Island, just before the events of that story, making it a prequel of sorts. However, it is an independent story.
Life on the streets is hard, and it’s even harder when you’re just a tiny imp like Rose.
Living from day to day, she never knows where, or when, she will get her next meal. When a stroke of hard-earned luck is stolen from her, Rose has to use all her courage and cunning to turn things around. However, this will be harder that she ever imagined.
