You can read the prologue (yes, a prologue, cunningly disguised as ‘THEN’ – as a general rule I detest prologues, except this one, because it’s a prologue by proxy and because it’s mine) and first chapter of Friday Brown here on Text Publishing’s website.
Five things you didn’t know about Friday Brown:
I changed the entire novel from present to past tense during the structural edit, on a whim.
One character was inspired by the relentless Terminator cyborg – but it’s not a sci-fi or dystopian novel.
For research, I climbed a tree and couldn’t get back down.
There is no dog, but there are rats.
It has a pictorial epilogue (and I don’t like epilogues, but this one works because it’s beautiful and it’s mine).
I’m off to the Byron Bay Writers’ Festival, so over and out for now.
