A to Z Theme Reveal - A Novel Theme

Seriously I did some sort of bloghop A-Z theme reveal a couple of years ago but I am a bit out of touch with all of the blogishphere these days.



Still I have seen a few posts about the A-Z theme reveal and I thought it was high time to post as I have no theme to reveal really after doing music and animals in the past. This year's is far more exciting and ambitious. I will be writing a mini novel with one chapter every day. In many ways this is a lot more difficult than a theme and, although, I have done some forward planning I still feel the cold chill of A approaching me fast on April Fool's Day. It's less a clarion call to action that the mocking bells on the toe of a court jester but, nevertheless, it's coming at me fast.

My novel is about a troubled young man called Campbell who finds himself alone and adrift in the heart of Europe. It's about what he does next and his troubled relationship with his cousin Monty who is successful in everything he does - and knows it. In short, the type of cousin we love to hate. In order to find out if he gets one over his coz, you will have to read the whole thing, Come to think of it, I will have to write the while thing - not to mention thinking of a title. I have such trouble with titles.

Maybe it will come to me soon...but without further ado, it's time to lift the velvet curtain...

  1. Geez I'm really impressed. And looking forward to reading your chapters. I swore I wasn't doing the A to Z but then I ended up doing it anyway. A glutton for punishment.

  3. Oh wow, looking forward to it! I always get excited for A to Z, then I dread it, then I usually end up appreciating the daily deadline because it forces me to produce. (I guess I work best with my feet to the fire.) Good luck, see you in April!

  5. I was being ambitious with my lack of writing time by promising a couple paragraphs a day. You've got me beat. Best of luck to you!

  6. An ambitious project for the A-Z challenge! I'll look forward to reading your mini-novel; the premise sounds really interesting. I have a cousin like Monty, only I don't dislike him at all - seems to be the other way 'round for some reason...
