Now that this website is officially live to the world, I thought I would get the ball rolling and begin with my first official announcement on here. After months of writing, editing and the overwhelming desire to throw my Macbook Pro out of the window, I can finally give you some information about my debut novel. It’s about time too – I’ve been talking about it for months and yet none of you know anything about it!
So here we go – allow me to introduce you to the title AND the synopsis of my debut novel.
Melanie Winters is struggling with university life just as much as everyone else. Exams, lectures, the power to move things with her mind, the usual worries.
After a freak accident that she caused, Melanie is forced to return to her home in the Welsh countryside with her mother to start again.
But when strange events begin to occur upon her arrival, Melanie begins to realise that she, and the powers she fought so hard to keep hidden all these years, might be part of something a lot more sinister.
This is an idea that’s been lingering in my head for quite a few years. I wrote the first draft of this novel as part of NaNoWriMo 2014 despite not completely finishing it. I’ve always been fascinated with the world of science fiction and I wanted to craft a sci-fi story from my opinions and perspective. It’s been an incredibly rewarding couple of months putting this all together and as of writing this post, I am working with Rowanvale Books to fine tune it ready for publishing.
Now the other question a lot of you will probably be wondering is when will the book be out? And my honest answer right now is…I don’t know! I’m aiming for a Spring 2018 release but whether that’s being too optimistic remains to be seen. Obviously I will keep you all updated through here, the newsletter and on social media.
There will be more information about the novel as time goes on and I’m hoping to update you all once again in a couple of weeks with the reveal of the cover!
So, there you go! You’ve finally got a taster of what to expect from my debut novel. I hope you guys are excited and eager to know more, and that you enjoy reading it as much as I did creating it.
