Karl & Erin: brief encounter by el gringo Word Count: 1544

This is a short slightly Christmassy spin-off story using the Carpe Diem characters Karl-Erik and Erin, written for the Hoddesdon Players' Christmas readings social event. You can imagine it to be beyond the end of the events in the novel, though Karl is still trying to resist Erin and ultimately failing to resist the charms of a Christmas together. It's written in two parts: from Karl-Erik's perspective, then from Erin's. Merry Xmas to one and all!

Carpe Diem (working title), Chapter 3 continued... by el gringo Word Count: 1662

This is the continuation of the chapter I've recently published, comprising the restaurant meeting between Dr Handley, Gordon Evitts and another character you briefly met in another istallment. This should illustrate the question about how connections would be established between some of the characters! The previous section will be edited to spread the content more logically, as kindly suggested by several people.

Carpe Diem (working title), Chapter 3 by el gringo Word Count: 5872

It would have helped to have read the prologue first, but that's not yet ready for publication. It concerns the bizarre murder of an apparently innocent academic. I'm not very pleased with this chapter because it sounds like a cheap whodunnit - not the genre to which I aspire - though it is critical to the plot. Would be interesting to hear views of whether Evitts' account sounds authentic, or where you place his motives to be from his story. Thanks to all Andy
