New Writing Progress - King of the Rumbling Spires


The research for my seventh novel, King of the Rumbling Spires,  is continuing, and I'm pleased to announce that I've recently penned the first seventy-plus pages. The book will not have any chapters and will be written in a journal style, similar to my first book, The Asylum Soul.





























The novel is set against the backdrop of music by Marc Bolan




The inspiration for King of the Rumbling Spires probably goes back years to when I was about fifteen years old. Since then, I've always wanted to write a book of fiction different from anything else I'd seen. Something which people could dip into at any time and find very lyrical. A book that they would want to sing along to in some way!


Scheduled for a Spring publication, King of the Rumbling Spires incorporates some of my own poems together with excerpts from a setlist of Marc Bolan's finest songs. This I feel will give the novel an alternative edge, and hopefully appeal to anyone familiar with the legacy of the great work Marc Bolan left behind.


The main character is Marc Abela, who was born on the same day Bolan died when a car driven by girlfriend, Gloria Jones crashed into a tree in West London, in the early hours of 16 September 1977.


The story, a paranormal/psychological drama, is predominately set in a Surrey psychiatric clinic in the modern day.
