This is my first bit of writing to have made it into the public domain, after countless aborted attempts. I'd be very grateful if you would modify your expectations accordingly!
A few quick notes:
- I will be posting chapters each Wednesday and Saturday.
- There will most definitely be sex in the story, but at the outset, the protagonist is only ten so has some growing up to do first.
- The first few chapters are necessarily quite bleak because of the context. If you stick with it, happier times will come.
- I will add other codes as the story develops. There is a long way to go yet so can't guarantee what will or won't come up.
- Everyone loves a do-over, and I'm a big fan of the stories on this site about Carl Buckman, Paul Taylor, William Britton and many others. If you're expecting a story of equal calibre to those giants, I'd invite you to read again my opening paragraph above. There will inevitably be a few parallels with other stories because of the time periods and do-over concept. My protagonist being British (like me) will hopefully give a distinctive slant on the times.
- British spelling and grammar throughout. Let me know if anything needs translating.
I hope you enjoy the story.
