Read Time and disPLACEment by Matthew Underwood-fReado
The Story Behind This Book
I've always enjoyed science fiction and watching films like Back to the Future and programmes like Doctor Who inspired me to finally put pen to paper.
I have a lot of ideas for stories and just never got around to writing. But, when I had an image in my mind of a man appearing in the middle of a room in a capsule of fiery light, hardly knowing himself what has just happened, I knew that my first novel was brewing in my thoughts.
I wrote the first six chapters. Then, bizarrely, while actually trying to back up my work, I lost it. It was actually unrecoverable. I then resolved to re-write those chapters, which I did as best as I could (and possibly improved upon the original). I then carried on writing with a renewed zeal and urgency. No way was I going to lose my work again (how I managed to lose it is a mystery, because I am not a technophobe).
My book was then finished, edited, proofed and published. It is available at various retailers in paperback (such as amazon) and is also available from the ibookstore and on amazon's kindle (+ other readers).
I am working on my next book for an early 2012 release!
