Crying Wolf

Welcome to Sally's book-a-day-for-2017 blog. If unfamiliar with the blog, scroll down.

Crying Wolf (2009) (Post 230)

Crying Wolf... The brief was to write a retelling of the fable of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf". But that wasn't all. There was also a need for the story with the same theme, in a different setting. Since I like writing science fiction at this level (okay, at any level), I set The Starship Apprentice on a starship. Working in hydroponics isn't a lot of fun when everything is monitored by the starship itself, but something just occasionally goes wrong... Instant excitement! The trouble with that is things get fixed and everything's dull again...


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service.
