For my second post in the Indie Block Party I present a snapshot of my current WIP, although I have others hovering in the background.
My current WIP is ‘Spiral Of Hooves’, my first novel. A mystery set against the equestrian world of eventing, it is the first Book in the ‘Chasseur’ series. In the final furlong, or stages, it is due to be published as an e-book in a few months, by Spectacle Publishing Media Group http://www.spectaclepmg.com/ .
The idea originated from my experiences as an equestrian journalist, and from thoughts I had when I was living in Canada during the 1970’s.
BLURB: French researcher Armand Sabatier witnesses the murder of a rider in Canada, but a snowstorm obliterates the evidence and traumatic images from his past smother his memories. When his friend Gilles Boissard employs another young woman, Carly Tanner, as the replacement head groom in England, events resurrect the memories and the nightmares. Armand is forced to unravel a plot to pervert the breeding of competition horses, before it claims other victims
The chair spun across the floor as Lina Jardero stood, fists punching the air.
“Caramba, the coward’s emailed more ridiculous demands,” she said, then paused as if expecting answers. “Why does everyone interfere in my work? Doesn’t anyone realise that I’m the scientist? There has to be an end to this.”
This WIP was mainly written pantser style, which meant I got lost over the years. Since then I have always tended to be a plotter. I’ve Just finished writing outline for sequel ‘Tortuous Terrain’, which I intend to write for NaNoWriMo in November. Other novels hiding in drawers at various draft stages – all bar one plotted.
