I just wanted to let you know that I’ve released a brand-new short thriller, Nice Girl Like You, which runs about seven thousand words in length. That’s equal to roughly twenty print-pages in traditional publication.
It’s a fun little read, and while some folks feel it’s still a bit short, others who have read pre-release galleys have been praising it! For example, my fellow horror-thriller-suspense writer, Michael W. Layne, had this to say about the story:
Hansen’s likable characters, dead-on dialog, and elegant prose lull the reader into a false sense of happiness that makes it even more powerful when he rips that comfort away and sends you spiraling along with his main character toward the end of this horrific tale. Highly recommended.
Anyway, back to Nice Girl Like You. While it’s only a brief tale, it’s a significant one for me, as it is the first tale I’ve written that is set in Oregon, rather than Hope, Wisconsin.
I first moved to Oregon in late August 2011, and I wanted to wait until I’d been here a while before attempting to pull off an Oregon setting. Hopefully I didn’t jump the gun.
At any rate, enjoy the new release. It’s currently exclusive to Amazon, though I’ll get it out to other venues eventually. Enjoy the day.
