Out Now: EXTRICATE, a noir novella

extricate ebook 72ppiExtricate

by Graham Wynd

Love hurts…but that’s the way she likes it.

EXTRICATE is a violent tale of sexual obsession, unfolding on the dark streets of a nowhere town. Peter falls for Judy the instant he lights her cigarette, but she’s his best mate’s girl — and he’s already married. He decides to begin removing obstacles — starting with his wife. How far will he be willing to go? How far does lifelong friendship go when he finally meets the woman of his peculiar dreams?

‘EXTRICATE is a twisty- turny noir tale of dishonor amongst thieves that is skewered with hot lust and cold blooded murder.’

Paul D. Brazill, author of Guns Of Brixton and Gumshoe

‘Crime meets erotica in a fevered novella. Graham Wynd has written a fluid and tight story with vivid characters in situations that are inextricably charged with a sexuality from which you will find it hard to extricate yourself.’

Richard Godwin, author of One Lost SummerApostle Rising and Mr Glamour

NaNoWriMo Begins

How to Keep WritingIf you have ever had any interest in writing, you have probably heard of NaNoWriMo, or [Inter]National Novel Writing Month. I haven’t actually done it before though I did take part in the Three Day Novel Writing contest and have actually written a novel in less than 10 days (which one? I’ll never tell).

November is seldom a good time for a project like this in my world, as I’m usually trying to juggle deadlines and grading with the swiftly disappearing semester. But I have a little more breathing room than usual, so I selected one of my upcoming projects to give a whirl on the NaNo timeline.

If you’re NaNo-ing, too, join up with me as a writing buddy or track progress on Kit Marlowe‘s Knight of the White Hart.

Give it a go. If you need to figure out how to steal more time — as I do when I’m not on sabbatical — try my book, How to Keep Writing with a Full Time Job as it has a lot of techniques that have worked for me and generally encouraging things you might want to hear as you undertake this kind of project. Remember, anything you write is progress even if you don’t make the full target count.

Every little bit adds up — and creating is always worthwhile.
