A Day in the Life of Scott Hunter

So, over the weekend made surprising and pleasing progress with website updates. FB ads going well. Have an idea for the WIP. Flushed with optimism, into Monday . . . this week, no IT. No band rehearsals till Thursday. Today I was going to write. Today at 09.45, my son informed me he needed a lift into town because he was sitting his driving test theory.

Drove son to town. Had a coffee, read my mail, didn’t open my WIP. Remember I need to collect my musical equipment from storage. When though? Er . . . . . .

Now . . .

It’s 5pm.

No. . . how?

Dog comes in and asks why he hasn’t had a walk.

Bury head in hands.

Tomorrow is another day . . .

The abbot and his monks are strangely uncooperative, but when a visitor from the Vatican arrives and an ancient relic goes missing the truth behind Charnford's pact of silence threatens to expose not only the abbey's haunted secrets but also the spirits of Moran's own troubled past . . .
