 Fiction: The Twilight Laird - by Rhoda *NEW AUTHOR* Welcome this new UKA author (929 words) - Date online (24-11-2006)
  
Romance

I am almost done with this novel. When I finish my ending, I will be going back and editing for submission. Any suggestions for improvement would be most appreciated. My setting is in the highlands of Scotland, so for any of those folks who have been there and note discrepancies in my narrative, please let me know. I have never been to the highlands, so I am working with a disadvantage in that respect.

I started this story as a pastiche of Updike, as an exercise. Eventually it turned into something I'm pleased by - though the first two pages, which set the scene, still seem slightly clumsy. I'd be very interested to know what everyone thinks, if you can plough through to the end. It's 4,700 words. Dave

 Fiction: The Visitors - by erik (671 words) - Date online (27-10-2006)
Flash Fiction

Based on a real life situation. I wasn't sure whether to have Alzeimer's in the title. Without alzeimers being mentioned it is more ambiguous but is that a good thing? I'm not sure! The form of the first paragraph is based on an opening from a Kafka short short. I know the second person narrator is unusual in modern fiction but I deliberately kept it as an experiment. . .

Novel Excerpts

Jamie is unsettled by Roya and Louise is in trouble. The threads draw closer together. This far into the novel, I am wondering if I should not reorder the parts, put them into chronological order. Still shifting between sub plots until the central action takes over, but more in the order that they actually happen. if anyone has read this far, opinions would be valued!

On the advice of fellow ukauthor members, I've divided this story roughly into two halves. Until now, it was up in its entirety, and I've also made some modifications and general edits. Hope you enjoy; I'll place the second half online, on Monday. Conceit: Tiresias, a retired circus midget, begins to experience changes he never thought possible. Themes of identity and belonging are woven into the story.
