novel Tom Corven is a nerve racking experiment by Paul Story. It is
the first novel in the world to be written specifically for
podcasting. I am committing myself to provide the community with a
regular series of chapters, written to a professional standard and
recorded by me to the best of my ability, free of charge, until the
book is complete. I am doing this in the hope that, once hooked, you
will want to read (or listen to) more. Writing to a deadline in
fiction is extremely difficult because you are effectively saying to
yourself (and everyone else) that there will be no excuses, no
writer's block, no failure of the imagination and definitely no
lazing around. I aim to post a chapter every few days (I'll try for
Mondays and Thursdays). By the time it is finished, there will be
approximately forty chapters.
work is not copy-protected (although I retain all copyrights). You
may distribute the recording freely; I only ask that no one alters
the sound-file or attempts to make money from it.
you would like to support me then feedback would be most welcome.

may be interested to know (or not) that I lived in a small mountain
tent on the Island of Arran for four months last year and it is this
experience that informs the landscape and atmosphere of Tom Corven.
