I’ve just spent the last ten minutes prancing around the dining room like a slim, white, out-of-tune James Brown.
It’s over, The Page is finally finished. I nearly packed in a while ago and scrapped the whole thing. Thanks to my good friends Harry Dunn, Robert Weston and Charlie Wilson, I didn’t. Their support has made this happen. I am so grateful for this.
So the publisher now has The Page and we now wait for typeset versions and release dates. It’s so exciting.
However, I wanted to let you into a few secrets about The Page. I’m not sure my publisher would be ever so happy about this – but hey-ho I need to tell someone who isn’t my ever-tolerant girlfriend.
1) here’s the blurb:
“Following a tragic car accident, Michael Sewell is alone for the first time. The loss of his wife, Margaret after thirty years of marriage has left a hole far greater than Michael could have imagined.
Persuaded to go on holiday, by his daughter Jane, a page blown from a book crosses the pool and sticks to his chest.
The words from the page resonate with Michael, describing in detail the exact events leading up to the accident.
Now, Michael must delve into his past and face his future, taking him and his family on a horrifying and tragic journey toward the truth.”
2) there are 15 clues in The Page that may give away the huge twist. A competition will follow giving away masses of prizes including the original hand-edited manuscript.
3) here’s the draft cover. let me know what you think…
