I’ve put up an extract of my book series, Erebus, on this site. It’s the first chapter, and it’s sitting under the Writing Extract tab at the top of the page. Here, have a map I painted from when I was doing world building a while ago:
Erebus has been my pet project for so long now I can’t imagine not writing it. When I finally finished the first draft in November 2012, I didn’t know what to do with myself. Eventually I managed to distract mysef with other projects, and for a while I was happy imagining my Erebus characters sitting on a beach somewhere in Mauritius, sipping cocktails out of coconuts and patting themselves on the back for surviving seven years of my writing.
After a year or so, though, my characters seemed to get bored of all the sunshine and relaxation and decided to start tapping me on the shoulder again. Rather insistently. With sledgehammers. So I’ve gone right back to the beginning and started to re-write Erebus all over again, with a view to having a much more polished draft for potential agents to look at.
Please do read the first chapter. I hope you like it!
