Mabel and the Yellow Jackets interior

Home » Portfolio » Mabel and the Yellow Jackets interior

As a writer and indie publisher, I decided to experiment with publishing a short story as an ebook. “Mabel and the Yellow Jackets” doesn’t fit with my primary writing focus, which is science fiction, so it seemed like an ideal candidate.

The 5,400-word story contains multiple parts as Mabel’s relationship with yellow jackets in her house escalates. I thought it would be fun to break up these sections not with the usual dinkus or fleuron, but with yellow jackets. Each section got an additional insect.

Normally I put in page breaks before each chapter, but for a short story, it seemed more appropriate to keep everything flowing within the page.
