The Last Train to Dover- Update #1

Just hit the 30,000 mark this evening, very pleased with how things are turning out. So far we've had the outbreak hit the hospital, our 4 heroes racing through London keeping away from both the army and the undead, boarding the train and meeting a mysterious professor before getting onto the deserted boat. All of the chapters have been started to some extent with a couple completed apart from final edits. I'm hopeful of getting it finished by the middle of next month. I'll do another update in a week or so.

New project- The Last Train to Dover

I've just started another novel!
This is called The Last Train to Dover, its a zombie tale about the start of the outbreak. When it all kicks off in London one final train is set off to Dover to meet up with a ship to take them over the sea to France. This train is full of VIPs but the main characters of the story manage to smuggle themselves on board.
Its basically a real time story of the first day of the outbreak and the race to get away before its too late. Its the first time that I've tried to do a novel around one day, it'll sure be interesting to see how it goes :-)
The outline and character backgrounds are done and the first few words are down on paper.
I'll keep you updated on how things are going.
