New Novel

February 24th, 2010 Posted in News

On 22nd I mention a new novel. I said I would let you have a title when I knew it.  Well, the working title is THE ROAD BELOW ME.  A contract is on its way.  The story will be set in the early 1800s in Whitby on the Yorkshire coat, Shetland and take in the Clearances and forced emigration to America. Now all I have to do is write approximately 100,000 words !

    Congratulations! Sounds good. Not sure if you saw that I had commented on one of your earlier blogs – The new novel one.

    Writing this from Southampton! At the airport waiting to fly home. Didn’t get time to see Dom unfortunately as I have to be back in the North for a mtg tomorrow. Flew down ths morning to present to Zuich Insurance who are based near here!

    Have you ‘listed’ your blog on other blog sites, like I’m only just learning about these things but I think I read that you can register them on such sites and then it may widen readership etc. Might be worth looking into it. I will try to find out more and post some links for you to look at.

    Oh, another thought…..have you thougt abut writing a series of blog articles like, ‘How to write a novel’? Aimed at yonger authors starting out? Using your knowledge and experience to generate greater content on the blog to try and pick up ‘followers’?

    Hi Paul.
    Nice to have all your Comments. I think it might be an idea if you and I talk about these when we meet, 23 April your Mum tells me. Looking forward to seeing you and Kerry.
    I’m getting few Comments but that doesn’t mean I’m not getting hits! I’d like more Comments – I had hoped that when I started the category – Books From My Bookshelves – I might get some from booklovers and comments on what people are reading.
