In this story, Walter Mitty is not Thurber’s comically downtrodden, fantasizing husband. He’s a she, and desperately wants to be a rich and famous indie romance writer instead of a downtrodden direct mail list clerk.
Unfortunately, Wally likes to fantasize about various romantic plot points and her own imminent success more than she likes to actually park her butt in a chair and write. Luckily, her colleague Jonathan is eager to help.
Neither has a clue just how hard it can be to succeed as an indie author, of course … but don’t count them out yet!
