new and improved novel extract – the tracks…

24 Oct

the tracks… – chapters 1.1-2.1 (revised version)

hello. long time, no speak etc.

i’ve revised the opening chapters of my third novel, the tracks…, and i’d love you to read them here.

they’re different. i promise. and better. i hope.

either way, the tracks… now includes the phrase “balls like furry melons”. if that doesn’t excite you, then i don’t know what will.

my aim is to publish the novel’s chapters on this blog as i write them, which is ever so exciting. but bear with me; it’s taken a while to get this far. subscribe to this blog and you’ll be notified as soon as i post new chapters.

i hope you enjoy these remixed, rebooted and revitalised chapters. all feedback lovingly welcomed. comment on this blog or email me: daaanlewis@gmail.com

new novel extract – the tracks…

5 May

the tracks… will be my third novel, and you can read what i’ve written so far here.

i plan to publish the novel’s chapters on this blog as i write them, which is ever so exciting. but bear with me; it’s taken a while to get this far. subscribe to this blog and you’ll be notified as soon as i post new chapters.

the tracks… begins with the death of a woman on the train tracks at london bridge station, and focuses on the effect the incident has on the train driver who inadvertently kills her and a commuter who witnesses the incident.

i’m intrigued by the fact that, over the course of a twenty-five year career as a train driver, the chances are you’d inadvertently kill someone whilst simply doing your job. to me, this grim statistic offers an intriguing premise; train-related deaths are such a common occurrence these days, yet no one’s writing about them.

the tracks… won’t be quite as bleak as it sounds, though; to an extent it’s simply about how negative events can somehow have positive after-effects.

i hope you enjoy these opening chapters. all feedback massively appreciated (but keep it constructive, kids). comment on this blog or email me: daaanlewis@gmail.com.
