Title: Hi everyone
Post by: Hadrian on 23/11/2017 18:33:37

 I used to be a very active member of this community some years ago. I back now look for some help!
Typical I hear you say. Well, yea but please hear me out first.

Since I was here on the regular bases I have become an Author, not and very successful one but yet, or well known outside my family and friends. My first book was a nonfiction book about happiness and how the mind can get in the way it.  I had tried fiction before and got bogged by my own personal stuff.  So I guess my last book was a way to get beyond my own need to express my innermost thought about life and love etc.. LOL

So now I'm back writing like some possessed recluse locked in a house near a bog in the middle of Ireland. Hold on that's me I'm talking about. Now the book is a big fat conspiracy story set in 200 years time or so. There are bodies to be examined and mass depopulations to calculate, as to their effect etc. Right now I am just guessing about most of it. Now, apart from the fact I don't get out too often there just are not too many people I can ask about this stuff. I could say picking their brains but you might think I'm going on about the book again.

So rather than mislead anyone about what I am after I thought it would be better to just say it up front. I am looking help getting the science right behind my novel. Of course, I will acknowledge any help I get and the forum too in the book. It's not much but I cant make certain it happens.

You could post questions in the various sections of the forum making them general so as not to disclose your plot.
A number of authors have done it that way.

Hello Hadrian - nice to see you return; funnily enough I was thinking of you the other day when I was reading through and old thread in which you had participated; the conversation was about a campaign you were running to save a bog from destruction, as I recall. Does that sound right?

A lot of people who were here in the early days are still around, just sitting on the sidelines, popping in from time to time.

Facebook has, regrettably, made life hard for fora across the web, but we soldier on!

Glad to help with scientific book guidance, although I would urge you to remove your private personal contact data from your post above, because that might be exploited by the wrong sort of person...

What is your novel about?

Ok guys time for an up date as they say. 

First  of all yes the Book is still very much alive. Officially is now at 140k but I expect it will be nearer to 170 by the time its finished. Its a huge task but very satisfying if not frustrating at times. Now I have been advised I need a blog and that means more writing. I started a tentative attempt at blogging on the Medium blog site.

I have five chapters in audio format if anyone want to hear them then PM me.

I have learned so much from the process itself and even more from the many books and research I have undertaken. I marvel at how some authors can turn out a book after book. It's hard work or at least it is for me. I have very structured writing process that I follow five days a week. So yea it's a job.
