First Post on Brandon's Blog! 10/19/2011
This is the first post on Brandon Blog. This is where you will get to know the characters from the book and read excerpts in the coming months. The main character of my science fiction novel, Tale Spinner, is Brandon Merryweather. Brandon is a young timid New York accountant who loves to read. He makes his living crunching numbers and he unwinds by reading a good book. The office bully make Brandon's life a living hell, and he is terrified of riding the subways. Street punks prey on on timid souls like Brandon, but all that changes one morning when Brandon steps out of the front door of his apartment, sees a flash of blue light, catches a scent of burning ozone and closes his eyes in fear. When Brandon opens his eyes, he is standing in the main street of Greedy Gulch, the 1880s boom town from the novel he was reading who's author is deceased. A freight wagon is bearing down on him and Brandon promptly passes out.
Brandon must learn to survive in a savage new land, a land who's existence is fading. The people there call him the new Tale Spinner and expect him to finish the tale, that the past author left unfinished.
Will Brandon do what the characters want? Will he finish the tale or be forever lost in the land of fiction?
