I’ve just published my new novel “Hope Rising” on Amazon and Kindle. It’s the follow up to “The Decision” which came out in 2018. Like “The Decision” it is set in 2027, and it continues the story of the eco-socialist movement HOPE, its leader Charlie Mowbray and his friends and family, who become even more entangled in his struggle. On one level it’s a struggle against The Authority, which governs Britain (minus Scotland), on another it’s his internal struggle. Is he fit to lead the movement; and who does he love?
“The Decision” revolved around a kidnap at Wembley stadium before a big football final – the build up and the aftermath. It ended in Ireland – I’ll say no more. “Hope Rising” begins with Charlie still in Ireland, but looking to return to England, where he will have to face trial. Can HOPE rise to power from that inauspicious beginning? What part will Charlie and his fiancee Fran play? And his siblings, Will and Susan, for that matter? Read “Hope Rising” to find out!
“Hope Rising” is a sequel, so it’s worth reading “The Decision” first, if you haven’t. And there will be another volume, to complete the Hope Trilogy. I’m working on the plot right now…
Good on you, John – nice to know the creative juices are still flowing. I am of course getting my copy now.
