Yeah, I have a book. Is it published? Nope, it isn’t even finished. This is something I started a couple years ago, writing it on my iPod Touch of all things. For no reason other than a lack of motivation it had been put on hold for over a year. The thing is, this book has gone through a lot of different drafts and restarts, due to personal changes in life. However at the start of this year, I opened up the document and read it through again. It was at this point that I knew exactly what I wanted to do with what I had. Since then, progress has been slow, but at least I now know what I want this book to be.
So to celebrate this little event, I wanted to post my opening to my book. It’s brief, but helps you understand what your about to read as well as giving you motivation to read on. The book itself is written in first person, with each section of the book being a different genre set against the backdrop of a viral outbreak. The first and largest section is almost finished and is the romantic part of the book. The other two are still TBD. Without further delay, enjoy:
The year was 2030 and the world fell apart like the rotting corpses it fell victim to. In today’s world we know not of what happened in 2030, no records exist. Or do they? After coming across what I have found you will soon believe that 2030 was not the year to just simply forget. It’s the year we, mankind, almost died.
A year ago I came across a discovery, this discovery would lead to untold amounts of research. I had found 3 diaries contained within a box, buried deep in the earth near what is now known as Watchfield, but was once known as Woodsmith. These detailed what really happened in 2030 to a few individuals, the horrors they had to face and what the government did to erase their own horrific actions. Why should you trust me and believe that what your about to read is real? You can’t. However I trust you to at least read it first, everything is unedited and in it’s original form. Nothing has been removed, other than some pages that were unreadable. I warn you, it can get quite graphic.
First is the diary of Jennifer West. I’ve been unable to find any evidence of a woman named Jennifer West alive during that time. Given the lack of any detailed information from 2030 though, it doesn’t surprise me.
The second diary belongs to a Major-General Bill Reading. Thankfully I was able to find records of Major-General Bill Reading in classified British Military documents. They detailed all his operations before 2030 and interestingly enough labelled him KIA (Killed in Action) in 2028, yet the entries contained within his diary are from 2030. I have not been able to make any sense of this, all my digging ends in 2028 when he was confirmed dead in an explosion in Scotland. Maybe the Government have a hand in this?
Finally the last diary was written by Ellie Shaw. Believe or not, she is actually still alive today. I have no idea where she is but she’s out there, hiding most likely. If my sources are correct then she would had to have been about 18 to 20 years old during 2030. Maybe this book will help her come forward and confess about what happened in person.
So if you are reading this and it has made it out into the world then it may not spell a bright future for me. For knowing what I know on what happened in 2030, I may be already dead. However if everyone knows the real story then the government has no way of containing the truth any more. To all of you, go and discover the truth. Thank you for your support in picking this book up and learning the truth.

So there you have it, hope that was interesting enough for you. As for when will the book be finished? Well, I wish I had an answer for you. I’d love to have it done this year, so we’ll see if I can really push myself to do it. Thank you for reading.
