The New Book - Francesca Pascal

Posted on 8 October, 2012 at 1:51
The third novel in the trilogy is 'Francesca Pascal. It's written from a woman's perspective. I found that pretty hard as I've lived with women all my life but still don't understand them. Writing from a perspective where one has to put oneself into a female role betrays all one's weaknesses. The storyline is loosely built upon what happened to Lise Lesevre, a resistance worker who was captured by Klaus Barbie towards the end of the war. Yes, it is a harrowing account. Yes it is interspersed with action which is the part of my writing I like best (see Galdir I and II).
I had a short session with a big UK agent once who criticised me for writing in more than one genre, as if that in itself meant I was not committed. I don't see why that should be any kind of stumbling block though. All my books are character based and as such human personalities and characters generally don't change much through the years of history. The thing that does change is the historical backdrop and the items we writers use to show the time and place. people I think are much the same. They all love, they laugh and the suffer in equal measure now as they always did, it's just the environment that changes.
Be that as it may, Francesca has just had her first comment on Amazon UK ( ) and that reader enjoyed the read. It is a compulsive read with lively characters and seems to be a page-turner. The trailer video is here: I think My publisher has done the book proud - what do you think?
As it is, my writing is still not as good as it could become but inspiration and ideas require a lot of prior research and time is sadly lacking since - as Andy Warhol said - I have to bring home the bacon too!
If you haven't read Francesca Pascal then do it! If you have, then pass your opinion on to the others on Amazon. Next? Well maybe Galdir 4. They were interesting times those in the Roman Empire after the death of Commodus - a maestrom of deceit, danger and warfare.
Watch this space!

A great experiment to write in a fresh perspective. However, it is a great way to write from the point of view of a woman. Good job and please continue to do so in future writings.
