Welcome to another blog hop. Today’s topic is:

Do you miss a WIP when you’ve finished writing it?

I’ve not long finished writing ‘Falling’, and yes, I do miss James Hynde and Olivia Benet, my two main characters. However, I have left the manuscript alone for a few weeks now in order to get James and Olivia out of my head, and I have done no writing at all apart from a few blogs. I recently sent the story off to a few competitions and to a couple of agents, and still await their replies. Teagan Geneviene has created a lovely cover for the book, which I have added below.

Working Description:

Death seems preferable to spending the rest of his youth in prison…

James Hynde, fortified by several tots of whiskey, climbs up onto the roof of Parker Mews’ multi-storey car park and peers over the parapet.  The game is up.  The police will soon seize his millions, the Maserati, the London townhouse, and the Caribbean mansion on Windjammer Island. 

Should he jump feet first or hold out his arms and topple over and over like a somersaulting gymnast?  He closes his eyes, feels the breeze on his face, and pitches forward into the unknown.

Sixty feet below, Olivia Benet, a budding ballerina, rushes along Parker Mews towards the entrance to the multi-storey.  Her interview for the Royal Ballet had taken much longer than expected, and she has but a few short minutes left before her parking ticket expires. 

James has no idea of the consequences his action will have on his and Olivia’s lives.

When I finish writing a book I always wonder if I’ll ever find the inspiration to write another one, but sooner or later another topic always comes along. This time it’s a biography of a troubled lady in our village who has lived one hell of a life. It’s going to take me a long time to type up the notes I’m making!
