Now what am I going to do?
I'll be spending a little bit of time enjoying our post-lockdown freedom with my new toy. But apart from that, I will be heading back to my keyboard and the next instalment of the Helix series.
I have a draft title: Helix Nexus, a beginning - I've written the first six chapters - and I know how it ends. It's just all that tricky but fun stuff in the middle that needs doing. If the first book is anything to go by, the characters will lead me, probably by doing something unexpected. Gabrielle did that a couple of times in Helix Genesis.
Feel free to hit reply and ask me a question.
Here's one for this newsletter.
Q: Wha do you do when you're not writing, Chris?
A: I read a lot, listen to audiobooks and podcasts. I also enjoy walking and cooking, not normally at the same time. Mrs L and I are occasional Netflix bingers, most recently Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. I know - how on earth did we miss BB when it originally aired? Oh yes - Ozark and Altered Carbon.
That's it. Until next time. Stay safe. All the best.
