Written in the United Kingdom for National Novel Writing Month 2012 and published in January 2013.
This is a special edition of my book. After releasing the original, it was suggested to me that there was too much explicit profanity within the novel, and this upset them. This is therefore an edition that contains almost no swear words as almost all references of “f**k”, “s**t”, “c**k”, “p**s” and c**t” have been removed.
In November 2012 I wrote this book for National Novel Writing Month – the challenge to write a novel inside thirty days. It took me only two weeks to write, but over a month to edit and over the holiday season, I sent it to my group of alpha readers.
From their responses, I made further alterations to be able to present the book here today. I thank those people who gave up hours of their time – David, Turbo, Gary, my wife and everyone who wrote to me from the British Naturism forum. This book would not be as good, if it wasn't for their hard work and efforts.
This is my first fiction book under my real name, and I would love to receive feedback – good and bad. My website is listed at the bottom of the page and I will respond to messages I receive through it.
I am an occasionally active member of the Macclesfield Writers' Group so if anyone is in the Macclesfield area wants to try their hand at creative writing, then we meet at the library on Thursday afternoons; it's a diverse mix of characters and all are welcome.
Hope you enjoy the story.
