Tenderfield by Sass Wilson

Pacy and atmospheric, Tenderfield describes a moment in Aiden’s life where past, present and paranoia collide. As he struggles against the threat he feels is real, he finds himself alongside several strong women who end up tied in to his mission. The northern city and the wet weather feature as strongly as the characters in this book, and both provide a backdrop at once familiar and yet also mysterious.

Tenderfield is the product of an exercise the author set herself – to write a book in a week. It is the first book to be published by Gladhouse Press.

The Six-Day Story: how to write a novel in less than a week and other things I’ve learnt by Sass Wilson

Have you:
•    started to write a novel and not got very far?
•    got a stack of first chapters in a box at the back of a cupboard?
•    thought of a grand idea for a story but never got round to writing it?
•    begun projects then run out of steam?

Then this book is for you.

Maybe you’ll find something in this book that will help you to finish that novel or write that story after all. In these pages, at the very least, you may hear the voice of someone who has faced similar difficulties to you.

In November 2013, Sass Wilson set out to write a novel in a week. This book is the story of how she wrote a book in six days, what she learnt from the process of doing so and other reflections upon her life at the age of 50.
