So I’m back writing a novel again 🙂
I came up with the premise of Mercury’s Child some time back, but have had various excuses for not properly starting it … up until now! I moved back to the UK almost a month ago, and still haven’t got the green light to start my new job, so I figure I should be making use of my time by writing. I’ve recently written a couple of competition entries, however due to the rules, I can’t ‘publish’ them until I know whether I’ve won or not. However THIS I can ‘publish’ … it’s the first chapter of Mercury’s Child, hot off the press ….
I’ll post it as a separate blog post so that it’s easier to find in later months, but for now, let me give you a brief outline of the book.
Mercury’s Child is a science fiction novel. The main character, Halley MacFadden is just eleven years old, however I think the book will still remain in the young adult genre, like most of my books – though possibly the younger end – 13-15 as opposed to the 16+ age group that Flicker and TDN were written for.
I don’t want to reveal too much at this point, so all I will say is sit back, have a read, and let me know what you think!
