Novel Research

This was in the Times today about taxi drivers in Birmingham. I feel that my research was accurate, I’m sorry to say.-

Reading to empower writing!

For new writing to flourish, I’m currently reading credible fiction to emulate. That’s not classed as copying but I’m acknowledging strengths in other’s manuscripts. Completing reviews of these works will encourage those authors and help me become more aware of powerful writing techniques. Writers can help one another improve our craft through such collaboration. Do you wish to join me?

Have you any suggestions of good empowering books to improve my style?

Thanks for reading. Download my reasonably priced new adult suspense novel for an idea of where I’m coming from. See myBook.to/pollyjwhite

I appreciate your support as a newbie writer.

 

 

 

Truth

 

TRUTH OR DARE?

Hello there. Thanks for popping by.

You may well be wondering why I wrote about such a difficult topic as sexual exploitation.

Well, it wasn’t easy.

Unfortunately, it’s in the news all the time here in the UK and it forever loomed large on may radar. I made fiction based upon research indicating that permutations of Grace’s story are drenching our society and that across Europe. Grooming has been a guilty secret hidden for tens of years.

My thriller/suspense aspires to tip off students to the dangers of falling prey to gangs.

I suppose my protagonist plays the ultimate game of truth or dare. As a safe person, it was terrifying going down to the underworld with my protagonist. How else could I have revealed the shocking exploits of perpetrators, otherwise?

Romans 5:3-4 tells us

..because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Is that what Rayne Hall meant when discussing Managing Tension with peeks and troughs, earlier in the Week? See Mystery Triller Author Hour.

Grace went ahead naively travelling to the UK thinking her life would be sorted. She finds out that she made herself vulnerable but got embroiled in the world, too late. Admittedly, bad things happened, but really, it is never too late to brush herself off and find contentment. My story is about having faith.
