What A Cheat!

Have you heard of the Inheritance fantasy series?
You know...
Eragon and the other books that nobody can ever remember the titles of?

Yeah, you probably recognise it...from somewhere in the back of your mind...

Well, it doesn't really matter if you've never heard of it because, in my opinion, it doesn't even deserve to be published.

Publishing Consultants And Robots

So the other day, I was just browsing random stuff online and I was like...
"Hey! Why don't I look into 'how to publish a book?"

So I clicked on this link that apparently gave free publishing consultants if you gave them a few details.

So stupid old me gave them my email address and phone number...I thought..."Why not? What harm will it do?"

A Third Complete

Today, Ben and I finished the end of the twelfth chapter which ended Part One of the novel (which will be Three parts long) !!!
We printed it and, in A5, it would be about the size of Harry Potter One! And that's only the first part! This is going to be a heavy book at this rate!
I actually can't believe that we have managed to get this far!!!
I printed it all out because I find it easier to edit that way.
Yep, that's right! I'm now going to go through the whole thing and edit it!
So when it's done, I will be showing it to some friends and family.
When J.K. Rowling was writing the first Harry Potter, she only ever showed it to her sister. Her Mum never even knew she was writing it and she died before J.K. had even finished it.
I don't want a friend or a member of the family to miss that opportunity. I don't want my grandparents to never know my novel writing endeavours.
So that is why I have been telling everyone.

In celebration, I have done no work on it tonight and I will now give you the third chapter! :D x

I'm afraid, you're not gonna get any more chapters for a while! The other day, my mum noticed something that seriously ****ed up the next 9 chapters!
We've fixed the problem but it means I've gotta do a mega-edit! I'll write the next two chapters (12 and 13) and get to the end of the first part (1 of 3!!!)...but nothing can be shown for a while. This problem means that I've got to edit in a lot more stuff in the chapters already written.
The old first third has got to be thoroughly edited too.
So big things are coming!
It's all starting to get quite exciting as the story delves deeper into the plot!
Can't say much, or I'll be giving it away, but it's starting to feel quite epic! A big journey and an amazing story. It's starting to feel like there's a lot to it!
Let's just hope it stays that way!

Second Chapter Of Homeland!

So no faffing this time - I'm gonna get right down to it!
Here is the second chapter of Homeland:
Chapter Two
It all began on a cold evening in September. All that could be heard in the county of Shalo were the occasional hoots of owls in the forests and the marshes and the slosh of a wave in the harbour. The county was smaller than any other in the large island of Atlaan. The boats in the harbour bobbed up and down, the market was empty and still. The cobbled streets of the city were dark and lined with sleeping houses.
