- A re-read of Life in Slake Patch is on my list for the next couple of weeks prior to submitting it to my publisher for a spring launch.
- The Giving Thief a suspense novel – I am returning to this manuscript in the next month. Word count at 22nd May 2017 – 70,394. It will be a 2018 release.
Excerpt: The squeezing felt cathartic, the more pressure he applied, the better he felt, the stronger and more powerful he became. It silenced her taunting, those cruel words she knew burnt into his soul. His mind repeated a mantra – shut up, Gillian, shut up. The room grew eerily quiet, a blinding red mist across his eyes began to fade as he watched the vitality leave her eyes, and her frantic thrashing and clawing lessened then ceased. This moment changed his life forever.
This novel was inspired by several true life instances, I found too compelling not to use.
As authors and writers our inspiration comes from everywhere and anywhere, it is our imaginations that mold them into narratives.
I hope your 2017 writing projects are not only enjoyable but successful. If you would like to share them here, that would be wonderful.
