In a manner of speaking, I’ve been here before – approaching my blog as a platform for a book in serial form. The method, too, is well-tried. I start a story without knowing how it will end, and with none but the loosest of plans. Search my blog history and you will find ‘A Place That was Ours’, ‘Hallbury Summer’, ‘Nowhere Lane’, and ‘Continuum’. In one sense, ‘Satan’s Rock’ is in the same mould as these, because the finished entity will be book-length, but it will also have a much broader and less linear story to tell, a series of episodes coming together by mutual consent and at first appearance, nothing else. But I write for pleasure, so I hope it will be pleasurable to read – a voyage for us to take together. It begins here!
