I have finally got my first work published and I couldn’t be more pleased!
Power was particularly interesting for me to write as I love to do the research around the story subject matter. Since Power encompasses the world of freaks, the growing proliferation of smutty photographs particularly in the famous Holywell Street in London and women’s narrow place in Victorian society, I had plenty to get my teeth into. I shall cover each of these areas in my next blog entries.
As I move to writing more in the horror field, I must say that I surprised myself with how creative I could be in that area (cue many men reading this story with crossed legs lol!) Researching the instruments of torture –surgery as it was known in those days (no anesthetic of course!) was quite an eye-opener too.
