In addition to my two Science Fiction novels, I have written two eBooks one on natural beekeeping and the other on tropical fish keeping.
I have also put part three of the Guardian trilogy to one side. (It is only temporary there will be a final book eventually) because I have decided to broaden my horizons further and write a historical fantasy.
So I would like to introduce you to www.cliveosbornerapley.com. Please take time to visit and let me know what you think.
Now back to the historical fantasy it is currently sitting at 19000 words and growing daily (well perhaps weekly )
The working title is ‘A Moment In Time’: A recently graduated archaeologist is working on an excavation in Pompeii. He has an accident and is knocked unconscious. Two thousand years in the past a Roman Centurion is returning home to Pompeii because he has just inherited the family estates due to the mysterious deaths of his father and elder brother.
He is knocked off his horse during an earthquake. When he returns to consciousness he has strange memories that are not his and they seem to foretell of an impending disaster.
It takes him some time to make sense of his new memories but when the volcano erupts he ensures many people escape that otherwise would not have done.
When the archaeologist returns to consciousness after what is just a few seconds his world as he remembers it has subtly changed. Unfortunately things are not what they seem and outside forces are at work. He must discover what is happening and regain some control over his destiny.
Well that is the outline at the moment but things always seem to change as I write so it could be completely different by the time it is finished!
I will put the unedited chapters on the cliveosbornerapley.com website so you can read and comment on them as they are written.
