Since 2pm this afternoon, I have been writing my new novel DECEPTION. I was writing for 6/7 hours!
In this time, I was able to finish Chapter 28 and get started on Ch. 29.
Ch. 28 was an exhausting chapter to write – filled with twists, dark revelations and most of all, deep and emotional conversations for the two main characters involved.
Now, after today’s progress, I’m so close to completing the first draft of DECEPTION; I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I’m extremely excited to get this book finished and published for you all to finally read. It’s been well over a year now, since I started working on DECEPTION (formerly The Dog Walk) for my Creative Writing dissertation. I’m extremely hopeful about my fourth book, and I’m really looking forward to everyone experiencing this thrilling, creepy and dark journey.
Keep an eye out over the coming months for updates on DECEPTION – I’m aiming for it to be released in the Summer of 2016. A good read for your holidays!
I have been trying to think of a title for my new thriller for a while now, but I may have finally thought of a title worth considering.
After originally submitting the first few chapters of ‘The Dog Walk’ for my dissertation, I then decided to continue writing it and adapt it into a full novel. I was initially going to stick with ‘The Dog Walk’ as the title for the book, but for me it just wasn’t right. I thought of titles such as ‘Woodland Walker’, ‘Collared’ and ‘Woodlands’, but none of which suited the book. Now though I have a title which is well suited and definitely my best title yet.
The piece of work originated from my Creative Writing Dissertation (Which I gladly received a First for). I did a lot of research into the field of psychogy before creating the characters and story. With my readings, I was able to create the intricate and intriguingly strange and lonely main character Billy.
I’m happy with how the story is currently unfolding, and I can’t wait to get it finished and published for all of you to read.
As you may know I finished my first draft of Endurance: Apocalypse a couple of weeks ago. I am now at the stage in which I need to go through it and edit it. This stage is very difficult but it is the stage which makes your book what it is. It can be very tedious and long for authors but it is something we must do as the author.
I am slowly working through it to make it what I want it to be and sound to my readers. However, I have been bugged by all of my other book ideas, which are constantly filling my mind. I sometimes feel my mind is working to quick for me to compensate all these ideas, and so I felt it was time to set Endurance 2 aside for today and to concentrate on another book idea of mine. I am hoping that this would unclog my mind ever so slightly so that I can concentrate solely on these two books.
This book idea is dark, and of a supernatural genre; with an interesting twist.
I cannot give too much away but I can tell you that I plan for it to be original. I have not decided on a name yet but I have written a fair chunk of the book.
This book will be available on eBook only and not paperback because I want to release this as a short story. I’m hoping this will be a short story that you can still relate and bond with the characters as well as the novel capturing your imagination and will make you think about ghostly spirits differently.
I will keep you updated on this title but this is the very early stages of this project.
“London is silent. Severed bodies lie amongst the rubble. What once was a lively city is a now a murderous grave, enclosed in smoke and ash. The cause of the destruction is unknown. Left haunted and terrified, survivor Tom Williams confronts the brutal, mutilated streets as he fights to uncover the truth. Could he be the last hope to restore normality?”
Endurance is a gory Horror, Mystery and Dystopian novel. This is the first of the Endurance Series.
Endurance: Apocalypse is coming soon!
“Really enjoyed this book! Didn’t see the ending coming at all”
“This was a crazy story full of nonstop action (like on every page) and unexpected moments that just left you thinking wow.”
“Love the book, and will read more from this Author.”
“Endurance is packed with twists and turns. I couldn’t put the book down! It is a fast read with an intoxicating blend of horror and fantasy.”
“One highly readable book with characters are easy to get into, and very good, well thought out plot. Exciting and entertaining read.”
Honest reviews from Amazon.co.uk and .com readers!
Here’s a lovely picture of me recovering from my operation on my toe.
Not being able to walk or do anything has forced me to do uni work.. Which has surprisingly given me a new supernatural book idea! I want to work on it and plan it out a little more yet but potentially, I aim to finish writing my next novel Endurance: Apocalypse and then move on to this idea and work on getting it released 🙂
As you all know, I completed writing The Author and now it is undergoing the editing and proof reading stage.
I thought it was about time to let you all know what it is about. So now I can FINALLY tell you! So here you are, here is The Author blurb below,
Four years after his wife and children disappeared, Ryan Milligan decided it’s time to let go of the past and move to a new home on Mulberry Lane . Ryan hoped his new house and peaceful neighbourhood would help him to cope better with the pain of losing his family and to continue his search. Whilst settling in and writing his new novel, Killing for your love,he realises things aren’t what they seem…
My new house is only a mile away from the home I used to live in with Tan and the kids, but now I feel like I’m in a different world. I can’t help but feel like I’ve been here before and done this before. There’s a presence here, I can feel it. There are things happening in this house that aren’t normal. I’m threatened by the lack of control I have over them. There’s one room where I feel it most, and as I stare at the door leading down into the basement, it begins to creak open.
What do you think? Do you like it?
The Author will be available really soon. Definitely by the end of this year but hopefully November 2013.
