Synopsis of and notes on my publsihed novel 'Immortal Dreams'.

Updated on December 8, 2010

 Ive just had my first novel published, 'Immortal Dreams', all about characters who dare to dream and strive for greatness and despise mediocrity. It's set in the world of porfessional sport, golf and tennis to be precise, but you don't need to be an expert or enthusiasist in the field to follow the story and enjoy it. On the other hand it will still be enjoyable for fans of those sports, with all the sporting facts being so accurate. It could make a great present for fans of sports books, but also good for sports fans who you would like to try and get into reading.

Here's the 'blurb' that's on the back cover:

Golfer Jack and Tennis player Darla set out on their paths to greatness. Having dreams bring either ecstatic joy or agonising despair. Both despise mediocrity, their journeys are ones of hope and along the way they realise that such a journey is better than any destination. Can the irresistible force of their determination overcome the immovable object of all the obstacles in their way?  Every time Jack looks like getting close to his dreams something gets in his way. Injuries, loss of form, lack of belief, bouts of nerves and sometimes plain bad luck. Darla has one particularly cruel setback, the depression that follows results in her throwing herself into a hedonistic and self destructive lifestyle. Sunny is Jack's caddy and is not only useful as a great friend, but her dark past acts as a great perspective check any time Jack gets too uptight about manipulating a small white ball around a big green field. Striving for greatness and daring to dream make for a highly emotional journey, character is revealed and principles tested. It’s not about the sports, it’s about the people. Only achieving their dreams can ever make either of them truly happy.

 

In the long term I want this hub to also be used as a forum for people who have read the book to leave comments for me about the book.

 

The book has recently gone on sale on amazon and the Barnes and Noble website, and should soon be on the Waterstones and WHSmith websites.
