Hi everyone. Welcome to another amwriting post. My manuscript on The Vanished Boy now stands at around 65,000 words, and the first draft is done! If you’re a regular here, you’ll have seen the blurb and cover already, so feel free to skip down to this week’s excerpt. It’s a short one this time. I’d love to know your thoughts, bearing in mind this is straight from the WIP and is the first, unrevised draft. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone 🙂
About the Book:
A missed phone call in the night is all it takes.
When Carole’s 18-year-old son goes missing, she breaks into Jayden’s laptop to try to understand his life.
All too soon, Carole discovers just how little she knew her boy.
And when one lead after another dead-ends, the distraught mother has to face the unthinkable.
Sucked into a sticky web of deceit and lies, nothing is as it seems.
When your life turns inside out and upside down, who would you trust?
While the walls of a house may well hold many secrets, they don’t deign to reveal any to her. All the cold plaster offers is an empty echo of her failings as a mother. How could she not have known? That haunting question seems to be the one thing that she keeps slamming back into, pierced on its barbs each and every time she hits it. How much more can she survive?
