Writing - Need to write more quickly!

Just when I thought everything was going swimmingly with my latest novel, Flight To Nowhere, they go and find a bit of wing!

Found at St Denis, Reunion Island

A section of a wing probably from a Boeing 777 has been found on a small island close to the east coast of Madagascar. It is believed to be a section of the wing from Flight MH370.

The question is what do I do? I completed Chapter 12 of the Flight novel just yesterday, over 18 000 words. The problem being that if they find the plane it rather alters the outcome of the book I'm writing which is a speculative handling of the story of the incident that occurred over a year ago. The answer is as the title suggests, I think I need to write more quickly!


The other books available in the portfolio,

 My hero was created post recession and so has no concept of how 'good' things were pre-2008. In 'I Have To Get It Right' when he began to flex his muscles he was working in an accountant's office. Then after the Gurentai took him under their wing and removed all of his financial worries, it was justice that was his major concern. He did become involved in international relations in 'The 51st State' but it was for the maintenance of a respectful distance between countries, rather than economic reasons. His trips into the USA had repercussions which can be read about in 'The Biter Bit' but then by the time things began to change in 2011 and the recession was really biting, Steele was trying to make sense of the state of the nation in 'A Changed Reality' and coming up against some really nasty people taking advantage of the shortage of money. By the time the USA are out of their recession Steele's steps are still being dogged by an unknown enemy from the same country. In 'Inceptus' we also find out more about what makes the man tick. The most recent Steele book 'Castled' where Steele is once again at risk from unseen enemies. It would seem that he has become quite recession proof!
The most recent addition to the Steele family is Earth plc in which our hero is concerned with political and emotional issues in this crime fighting adventure.

All books are available in paperback or ebook through Amazon, Smashwords and all good book shop websites.

This is a dystopian story that hinges directly on the state of the nation as a result of fiscal mismanagement. Having said that it is more a story of human relations, privations, love and loss.

Poetry - there are also two thoughtful collections of poetry available solely through Amazon.
