Writing - Cessation a dystopian journey

Available for Kindle and in Paperback formats

This is an unashamed book launch! Cessation is a departure in my novel writing from two points of view. Firstly, it is written in the third person and secondly, it is NOT a Steele story. Having said that it is another step in my own writing education. Currently it is only available in the two ways, Amazon Kindle and through completelynovel.com (search David L Atkinson)


The story is a speculative journey into a possible future that may lie ahead of us all. There is evidence that such a future may not be impossible. We have been warned that unless we increase the ability to produce electricity there could be power cuts in the next ten years. Our modern day lives are permeated through with the need for electricity and its production.
Although Cessation could be categorised as a dystopian story I find that rather a negative word and the purpose of writing the tale is to allow elements of hope in a seemingly desperate situation.
The story begins in 2023 a couple of years after the lights go out for the last time. Our group of survivors are thrown together on a farm in the low Pennines north of the M62 motorway and within striking distance of a number of northern towns which could prove useful for supplies. Initially the group is small and live on a farm called Serendipity but as time passes the size of the group waxes and wanes for a variety of reasons.
