Well, I don't know if anyone will actually read this, but suffice to say that I'm quite happy to release my first chapter. I was a bit apprehensive, unsurprising since this is the first writing I've ever shown anyone but hopefully it'll be well received. Admittedly, I was a bit confused as to how exactly to submit my first chapter and I was stumped as to the formatting required for submission, though fortunately I think it's come out okay.
I've actually completed the second chapter and am well on my way through the third, but I want to proof read them before release, haha.
I realise that it's a bit of a slow start, but I wanted to flesh out the back story of the main character and his family first, there is the slow tag after all. Don't worry, the monsters start appearing soon enough and hopefully they fail to disappoint.
Anyway, I've drawn inspiration from quite a few authors on the web, maybe you'll be able to guess as to who. The story itself has been lurking in my head for quite awhile and my muse finally shackled me to my computer and forced me lay out what had been my idle musings. As you can see, it's a post-apocalyptic tale with monsters instead of zombies, and some psychic abilities mixed in.
If you didn't get the title reference, it was my attempt at a witty title: a mix between halcyon days and hell.
Well, here's to hoping that my story doesn't crash and burn.
