Ooh! I just realised it’s LATE OCTOBER and I have a SHINY SHINY new novel idea! NANOWRIMO MY OLD FRIEND HERE I COME!!!
ahem I’m slightly excited.
If you like wild ramblings at odd hours, I expect my twitter will have plenty. @FBanksBooks
It’ll be a Hosted Game. Here’s my current blurb:
You are one of the lucky writers given a room at the Gundagai Anglican Rectory along with five others.
It’s a beautiful 140 year-old house and the other writers seem… well, odd. But nice.
Until the stories start to take on a life of their own.
And then one of the other writers is killed, and you’re all suspects in the murder. And none of you are allowed to leave town.
Something is happening. To your story. To the house. To you.
Can you stop it before the story takes you over? Do you want to? Or will you be the next victim of the murderer?
See, my mum is the rector (for realsies) at Gundagai Anglican church. Every time I go there I think what a brilliant writing retreat it would be. it really is 140 years old (the church right next to it is 150) and has a lot of cool quirks, like the handles one uses to wind to summon servants via a system of bells.
add murder and magic, and I have a story!! EEEEEE!!
