Story of Lee – bits from my past

 

In volume 3 of our series with NBM, The Story of Lee,  I’ve written a commentary on two pages at the back of the book, about various aspects that can be seen in the book, real life places, events, Scots language words, etc. I also did this with the other two volumes.

Here are some snippets from that with the relevant pages for you:

On Pages 2 to 4: The character Xavier is based on an international student who was in my Masters degree in Edinburgh University. The kind of person who is smart but can’t resist showing off about it. We had all agreed not to show the results of our first essay, as it was immature to compare marks and not the point of learning. But as soon as he saw that his result was good he showed it off to any one he could. ha!

He is probably now the head of a department of sociology somewhere.

3rd and final volume of THE STORY OF LEE

The 3rd and final volume of our book THE STORY OF LEE is done and dusted (well, a little bit dust remains), and will soon be off to the printers.

I’m very happy with it – the cover is lovely, a sad image but with a beauty to the framing and the texture that artist, Piarelle, has brought to it. She, a young artist working on her very first full length book, has done an excellent job.

Cheers, Sean (and Piarelle).

 

BREAKING THE 10 – BANDED SET – Sept 2018

NBM does these little sets in which 2 or 3 books in a series are given a cute little band to connect them into a special set at a special price (a lower one that is!)

Check it out here folks, this is one of my favourites of my own original story books.

“When David loses his wife and child in a tragic car accident, he decides—full of anger at the cruelty of the event—to turn against God. He sets out to systematically break each of the Ten Commandments in order to both spite God and to get his attention! But will he go all the way, and break the commandment “Thou shalt not kill?” Two mysterious figures, Mr. White and Mr. Black, try to win David over to their side: the religious or the humanistic. Deeply sad in parts and comical in others, this modern story explores age old questions: Is there a God? And if there is, does that God care about us?”

Meanwhile, I am currently more than half way through writing volume 3 of our other book with NBM, ‘The Story of Lee’. Currently, Lee is in a serious discussion while walking home with her Uncle Jun, via Chambers Street and Middle Meadow Walk – two well known streets in my hometown of Edinburgh.

Nice!

I heard a voice…

One of my favourite things about our BREAKING THE 10 series for NBM is putting in jokes and farcical aspects along with the serious points questioning religion.

Volume 2 of our book BREAKING THE 10 came out this month.

“David becomes increasingly more desperate, with his extreme behaviour causing fights with everyone who cares for him: with the devilish Mr Black and the saintly Mr White and even with his loving parents. But his quest goes on, driving him to break the rest of the 10 commandments in order to draw out the elusive divinity to face a grief stricken man. Until, finally, he is faced with the most serious commandment all: ‘Thou shalt not kill.’
Will he do it? Or will God stop him?”
