Would death be less painful than life?
When she is sold by her father, Abbey discovers that nightmares can occur when you’re awake. Trapped inside a wooden cage, Abbey is forced to listen to the horrors and atrocities above; time ticking down until it is her turn. But Abbey isn’t prepared to become a victim; she will escape.
Although, what Abbey isn’t prepared for, is how harsh and unfair the world can be. With the sun turning its back on humanity long ago, life gives no opportunity. The only thing Abbey can do is learn to survive. To exist. And that means stealing any opportunity that comes her way. Haunted by the unpleasant memories bestowed upon her only nurtures Abbey’s paranoia, until she realises that to truly live in the world, she must confront the person who was responsible for her misfortune – her father.
Here Lies Love is a New Adult tale of actuality, of facing up to the fact that love comes in many guises. Can Abbey find the one glimmer of hope or will she be overcome with the darkness of revenge?
I can’t believe the day is here! It felt like an age getting to it, but my NA dystopian manuscript has magically transformed into a book. Sounds silly, I know, but last night I was flicking through my notepad (the one I used to write Here Lies Love) and I reread the first chapter. I tried to imagine what was going through my mind, my thoughts while writing. I couldn’t remember! Can you believe that? I remember feeling very confident about it – I knew where I wanted to go, but for the first time in my writing career, I actually changed direction half way through. I took the story even darker, which was a risk, but one I felt was right.
It’s been a strange six or seven months. The book was finished earlier than that, but the editing and the processing and the formatting obviously takes time. And published by Autumn Orchard, Here Lies Love is ready to make its own way in the world. If you are kind enough to show me some support and purchase the book, I hope it isn’t too dark for your tastes – show it some love and hopefully, by the end, you may feel slightly different from when you first began reading. For an exclusive look at the first chapter, you can do so by clicking here.
If you would like to buy the paperback, then I recommend purchasing from The Book Depository as they offer free shipping worldwide!
