I’m beginning to feel the urge to spread the word about my new novella. The Beauty will be available soonish, at the rate this year is speeding by, and I think it’s going to look stunning, judging by the effort and skill Unsung Stories are putting into it. I’ll put up a cover and more details when I have them, but for now here’s a link to the page on the appropriate website, and a bit of the blurb.
I always wanted to write a post-apocalyptic story, and I’m really pleased with this one.
Somewhere away from the cities and towns, a group of men and boys gather around the fire each night to listen to their stories in the Valley of the Rocks. For when the women are all gone the rest of your life is all there is for everyone. The men are waiting to pass into the night.
The story shall be told to preserve the past. History has gone back to its aural roots and the power of words is strong. Meet Nate, the storyteller, and the new secrets he brings back from the woods. William rules the group with youth and strength, but how long can that last? And what about Uncle Ted, who spends so much time out in the woods?
Hear the tales, watch a myth be formed. For what can man hope to achieve in a world without women? When the past is only grief how long should you hold on to it? What secrets can the forest offer to change it all?
Discover the Beauty.
