Cool Hand progress and anthology change

I’ve spent most of the last couple of weeks re-re-re-writing to see how to make a key section of Cool Hand work. It’s a major scene early in the third part of the novel. The trouble I have with this kind of work is that, after a couple of re-writes, my gut feel for the quality of the scene is impaired.

Anyway, the scene is now with Lauren to see what she thinks.

I have progressed on the fourth part of the book, as well as tidying up other scenes in the third part. I have to say, I’m still going slower than I anticipated. January (end of) is still my aim for release and I will update again next weekend.

In the meantime, the other authors and I have decided to put the anthology A Very Paranormal Holiday up for sale on Amazon, B&N, Kobo and iTunes. We did get a great response for the free give-away, and that offer will remain open: if you request the anthology by sending any of the authors an email stating your format (Kindle or ePub), we’ll send the file back to you. The same terms apply as before (authors can email you new book alerts, you can unsubscribe from those alerts, your email will not be used for anything else).

The German translations and the new audio book are all going well.


About Mark Henwick

I was born in Africa and left out in the sun too often. An early interest in philosophy and psychology was adequately exorcised by tending bars. And while trying to enroll in a class to read Science Fiction full time, I ended up taking an engineering degree which splendidly qualified me to move into marketing. That in turn spawned a late onset career in creative writing. When not working, I get high by the slightly less conventional means of a small light aircraft. My first book, 'Sleight of Hand' is available on Amazon at
