I just finished the first draft of my new novel “The Hidden Institute”. It’s a little bit Harry Potter, and a little bit Henry Higgins, and weighs in at about 66,000 words.
Cliffy is a child born on the streets of a Neo-Victorian world. When he witnesses a murder, the nobleman presumed to be guilty offers him a very unique bribe. If Cliffy will keep his silence, the nobleman will introduce him to the Malcolm Rutherford Holden Institute of Regentrification. There, Cliffy will learn to walk, talk, and act like a nobleman, so that he may infiltrate high society. But that type of fraud is punishable by death, and when Cliffy uncovers a plot to assassinate a head of state, he’s hunted by more than just the aristocracy.
Now that the first draft is finished, I will spend the next few weeks editing it, and then I’ll put it on CreateSpace, for publication in both e-book and p-book format. If all goes well, “the Hidden Institute” should be available in Amazon by March.
As soon as the book is submitted for publication, I will begin podcasting the story, hopefully at a rate of two chapters per week.
It’s an ambitious plan, but well worth it, I think. And hey! I finished my third novel! Woot!
