Paisley Soul

Paisley Soul

This is a very short excerpt from Chapter One of my novel The Paisley Soul of a Stricken Man;

Chapter One.

My name is Edgar Choudhury and people say they don’t have regrets! But what about things they would desperately change if they could, does that count as a regret or just something that happened that you can do nothing about? I believe in making decisions and commitments and following through with them, no matter the outcome. Surely that’s the only road to meaningfulness. Sometimes you do things and they turn out terribly but at least you tried, you put yourself up in the firing line, you gave it a go with honest intentions. That’s what I believe anyway. That’s why when I was given the chance to change the one thing that I truly regretted or wish I could have changed from my life, I took it whole heartedly.

After all it’s not everyday you get the chance to travel back in time to meet your deceased grandfather.

    • Yes it’s the very beginning. I am going to publish a larger excerpt soon, so you can get a much better idea of the story and where it’s going but I’m doing some tidying up at the moment. Once that’s done I will share. 🙂
