Taking the plunge


As some of you know I’ve been working on a Sci-Fi adventure novel set in the aftermath of an alien invasion and is about one man’s quest to to travel across the world to save the one person left alive that he cares about and save her from the aliens holding her captive.

I’ve been working on it for a couple of years now after finishing the first draft in five weeks and writing the last chapter on the night before my wedding.

It helped keep my mind occupied.

When I started writing it I was in the middle of struggling with depression and writing this book helped me deal with it and move in a constructive way.

Anyway tonight I was meandering around twitter when I came across this contest where I can submit my novel and possibly win £7500 as a grant for research on my next novel.

So I took the plunge. Wish me luck

      Also no idea why but this comment had to be rescued from the spam folder. Rather strange

      1. I seem to fall in a lot of people’s Spam folders… and for some others, WP doesn’t display my posts in their Readers…. I think the Bloggosphere is trying to tell me something 😛 LOL
