There you have it.  I’m currently about two-thirds of the way through the first draft with beta reading of the first chapters beginning towards the end of the month.

Set three years after an unexplained outbreak caused a zombie apocalypse ‘Lament for the Living’ follows the journey of a group of survivors who have lived in a hidden and secluded community.  Their relative peace and stability is shattered by unexplained fires in the surrounding area.  As the fires get closer a group of survivors is sent to investigate.  What they find is nothing compared to the discoveries made on their return.

The Deluge of Elias by David Nicol

Long after a cataclysm that destroyed humanity had been forgotten, the descendants of the original survivors live in a protected Dome governed by a set of rules known as ‘The Orders’.

The rigid enforcement of The Orders now threatens the people they were designed to protect. Elias has a solution, except it puts him on a course of action that is at odds with the rules that he has been charged to rigorously uphold. On top of every thing else, the solution came to him in the form of a dream; in a time and place where no one dreams.

Can he save the last vestiges of humanity, or even himself?
