On the Road to Fezariu's Epiphany
5/29/2011 8:20:39 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

In September 2009 I completed the first draft of Fezariuís Epiphany and felt mighty chuffed with myself, anticipating the editing to take a few months before I could harbour any dreams of publication. Well, here I am more than eighteen months later and am delighted to announce, that after a very long journey, my first novel from the world of Elenchera is here. Fezariuís Epiphany has finally been published in paperback on and as an ebook on and Amazonís Kindle Store.

It took six drafts to get Fezariuís Epiphany into a state where both I and my most valued critic and no.1 fan, my beautiful wife Mrs B, were happy with it. The idea for the novel has been with me for a long time and it was a very different book when Fezariu first came to me. His life didnít have the same complications it does in the novel today, in fact that early effort had very little substance or emotional depth now I think back to it. I didnít realise, however, that the answers were with me all along in the form of a short story I wrote A Motherís Blessing which I suddenly realised could slot into Fezariuís Epiphany and give it that substance it desperately needed. There was still a lot more work to be done though. As well as being my no.1 fan and critic, Mrs B is perfect for brainstorming with and through her guidance and curses I was able to finally structure Fezariuís life, full of twists, turns and complexities into a narrative I was happy with but, most importantly, one my wife simply loved. Hopefully this version I offer to you now has made up for what the original idea was sorely lacking.

Through the six drafts of Fezariuís Epiphany Iíve made name changes, eliminated some characters completely, transformed others and even toyed with a happy or sad ending. I wonít tell you which I went for. After six exhaustive drafts I realised just how difficult it is to complete a novel. Iíd written four inferior books prior to Fezariuís Epiphany but I didnít put as much of myself into the editing and reworking of those novels as I did with this one. That just tells me how important it became for me to tell Fezariuís story and though he was always nagging at me to finish this book I wouldnít have done it without the support of my wonderful Mrs B.

Last week Mrs B was instrumental in getting the novel ready for publication on and Sheís Internet savvy is my wife, unlike me, and heading down the route of self-publishing there was a hell of a lot of work to do but, as always, we both got through it. We received word last week that two proof copies of the novel would be with us by the following Monday. It was one of the longest weekends of my life but Monday soon came and so did the parcel. Mrs B has been so supportive that I gave her the honour of opening the parcel and soon we beheld the proof copies. I have to say Mrs B and Amazon did an amazing job and looking through that proof copy it finally hit me that Iíd reached the end of the road Iíve shared with Fezariu for such a long time.

As much as Iíve enjoyed Fezariuís company I feel itís only right that he be allowed to set out on a new journey where he can share his story with you. Those that choose to take his hand, I hope itís a journey you enjoy as much as I have writing it.

Happy reading.
