Interview with the Author of ‘Spring Fever’

Spring Fever, available now. (Cover by Paulina Smit, all rights reserved)

So, Harma-Mae, what inspired this short story?

To be perfectly honest, it was experiencing the same sort of feelings Emily does in the story. Just feeling restless and fidgety in my own skin, without really knowing why. Was it the weather, was it because it was finally spring, or what? And then realizing maybe it was because everyone I knew was falling in love around me.

How would you describe the story?

Pretty much how I’d describe most of my writing – a cheerful, upbeat story that leaves you feeling good. I like to write things that leave people feeling good.

Was it hard to find a cover designer?

 I looked at several options that writers who publish e-books use, but in the end it wasn’t too hard. Paulina has done a lot of designing, and she has some really unique ideas. So to collaborate on a new project wasn’t a big step for us.

What are your hopes for this story?

 Just that it accomplishes its goal and people enjoy reading it!

(Spring Fever is available at Smashwords and Amazon)


About The Amrah Publishing House

We are a small publishing venture that specializes in light-hearted literature, both fiction and non-fiction. We don't see literature as divided between escapism and realism, but rather aim to bring the benefits of both to our readers. Our stories will connect with your lived experience, while lifting you out of the daily grind as you read. Our most recent release is an illustrated storybook about Edmonton's history - a story that is more than the individual story of one family, but rather a story that connects us to a city we all share. This little booklet is by sisters Harma-Mae Smit (writer) and Paulina Van Vliet (illustrator) about a house in #yeg and how the world changes around it. This is a great book to teach your children about urban sprawl! And it's a great way for city-dwellers to connect more deeply with the city in which they live. We've previously published short pieces of fiction as ebooks as well. Keep on top of our latest offerings by following us at amrahpublishinghouse.com.
