While she is hard at work on her second novel, Delphine Pontvieux also penned a short story titled “Vertical Horizons.”

“It takes a long time to write a book, especially when the writer’s me,” says Pontvieux. “As a reader myself, I also understand how frustrating it can be to wait for a favorite author’s next book to come out. This is, in part, the reason why I decided to release a few original short stories over the course of the year to help shorten the wait until my second novel is published, and to thank my readers for their patience and dedication.”

“Vertical Horizons” tells the story of Costi, a young Romanian, who comes to Paris to find the job that will pay for the bills back home. He had to overcome his fear of heights to get the coveted position. 

From his vantage point, the city of Paris is sprawled at his feet. Yet, Costi refuses to see its true beauty. He left his heart behind in Transylvania, but is it where it really belongs?

“Vertical Horizons” is a tale of heartbreak, but also of resilience and hope, which shows beyond doubt that for everyone, there is a better tomorrow.

“Vertical Horizons” is available here in digital format on Amazon.
