Update on my novel

As many readers of this blog know I'm currently working on a novel that is basically about climate change refugees in a future independent Hebrides.

I wrote a very rough first draft of this novel for NaNoWriMo on November 2011.

Today I finished the current draft. It still needs a final edit and polish and may need extra scenes, but at least I have something that looks properly novel shaped.So that's my early Christmas present to myself!

Whether I ever find an agent or a publisher for it is another matter entirely!

I hope you find an outlet for your novel, maybe self-publish?

The Age of Miracles is quite a good book. The sun goes wonky and the days get longer and longer. And, of course, this causes climate change. I liked it. Maybe you would like it, too. Looking forward to reading YOUR novel!
Merry Christmas!

Good for you! I did the NaNoWriMo in 2011 and I've barely touched the novel since. It was based on a pandemic of bird flu followed by an eruption of the Yellowstone Dome. Sound like we're both into post-apocalyptic fiction! I hope to read your novel someday.
