Okay, so last year I entered into the National Novel Writing Month competition; I managed to finish my novel in 21 days with a total of 72,000 words. Pretty impressive for me, eh? This became Recon One-Five, and now I’m looking to November 2012.
In Ghosts of Earth -my third book, which I’m still waiting for the proof for- I’ve introduced a private detective by the name of Ruul Vin-Bornn. This is the main character for November! The working title is The Case of The Empty Killer. I’m literally making this one up as I go (sorry):
“Ruul Vin-Bornn is a down-on-his-luck private detective in New Amsterdam, the greatest city in the Nineteen Galaxies. Thanks to his actions three months ago, he has become a hero among the locals. But there are some who are out to make life more lethal for him…
Early one morning, Ruul is called to a crime scene by his friend Mando Alvis. There they find a man killed in full view of dozens of cameras. The crime was caught on camera, and yet nothing is seen besides the victim dying.
Too many questions complicate the case: how is it possible? Who committed the crime? Why was the man killed? And why has Intelligence Director Madsen taken a close interest?”
What do you reckon? Good or lame?
