We are returning once again to the Alternate Halesowen and Beyond series for another short story collection. This time the students are at the college for their second year, looking into where they want to be heading. You can buy it for £2 on the Kindle Store or, as with all my books, borrow it from Kindle Unlimited.
The Future Adventures of Halesowen, just as with Alternate Adventures, is a book that looks at the students of the college in their activities. Dealing with a wider area of time, all of the students get focus with their arc detailing their own future. Opportunities arise for many of them in different forms, and there’s also some resolution to conflicts both old and new.
Before this second preview starts, I just want to remind everyone that the previous books in this series are currently on sale at £0.99. The Alternate Adventures of Halesowen is currently on sale until midnight on the 8th, where Secrets Behind the Truth will then be the one on sale until midnight of the 16th. Twenty-four hours later, this book then releases.
Below is the preview, taken from the fourth short of the collection. From Brandon’s point of view, he and Oliver, along with his sister Ashley, have joined for a celebration of Ross’ birthday at a laser quest arena. This one builds on the thoughts of Brandon’s feelings towards Elizabeth and the future of that relationship. Enjoy.
The Future Adventures of Halesowen is a month off from releasing, bringing more short stories focused upon this group of media students. Character focus is again the order of the day, with a bit more put into developing some threads throughout the stories, mainly focused upon the futures each student hopes to pursue.
In this first story, the focus is on Daniel, who is waiting with Quinn to invite Brandon to join them as they craft a new video for their Youtube channel looking at the modules of the second year. This moment will start Brandon on a path that gets him greater self-confidence, which will serve for future events.
The start of this series came on 7/February-2012 with just a single part of the first chapter added under the name of TV and Film Residential Camp, sharing the spotlight with Doctor Who: The Star Wars Chronicles.
As the first original, you would have thought I’d have put a bit more thought into it, but just the same as the fan-created stuff, I was running on just a basic idea. In reality, there was more than just the basic idea, as I’d had to create a world and characters on my own, rather than just borrowing from other franchises.
However, much the same as that fan-created stuff, there was no serious planning put into it and I’d just be adding ideas into the story that I felt worked with what came before. The story itself needed more though. It needed a bit of proper planning put behind it.
My second book has now hit the Kindle Store. Secrets Behind The Truth is available for £2.75, but for that you get almost 200 pages of book. This one is also available on Kindle Unlimited, so again - a buy or a borrow helps support me.
The story that started in 2012 and was almost completed in 2013. The story that I wanted to be my first, but decided to start with a shorter story. And in a way, I'm glad I did Alternate Adventures first. It was the driving force needed to sort the middle part of this one out, as well as give it the second plot thread included.
Yes, my first book has been published to the Kindle Store. The short story compilation comes in at 93 pages, and has a price tag of £2.50 (though that will probably be reduced soon). If you have Kindle Unlimited, it can be borrowed for free, but borrow or buy you will be helping me.
As I've stated before, the idea to do this came from TV and Film Residential Camp - where I was using real names of real friends and other members of the group. As I was building that up, I wanted a full cast of original characters, while still borrowing elements from my experiences. All the stories are original though.
