I’m 70,000 words into the first draft of my next novel, a crime thriller set in England, in 1985. For now, I’m not giving away any plot, character or title details at all, but I will be sharing all that as soon as the book is in a 90+% finished state and my test readers have had a chance to rip it to shreds.
I’m going to give this one a chance to be traditionally published, rather than abandoned to fend for itself in the self-published wasteland with my other novels. This book deserves that chance, and I thought it would be fun to report its progress on my site in this blog.
If you are interested in finding out about this book slightly earlier than everyone else, please get in touch via the contact page on this site. The same goes for anyone who fancies being a test reader, or just wants a free copy as soon as it is available.
I’ll be keeping these blog posts short as I’m using whatever free time I have (not much, as always) to get the first full draft finished as soon as I can.
