We have received the following introductory letter from one of our more distinguished subscribers:

Dearest Reader,

It gives me the utmost pleasure to present to you a further instalment of Parwich Heights, the striking work of romantic fiction penned by the collective contributions from readers of this virtual forum.

As you will no doubt be aware, my good friend Lady AgaSaga has kindly consented to bestow upon us the benefit of her fertile imagination. I believe she created this particular contribution from her private carriage on the Orient Express as she took her early Spring break to Venice.  You will no doubt find this latest instalment to be of the utmost fascination. I for one almost fell off my horse as the twists and turns unfolded before my eyes. I urge you therefore to situate yourself in a stable location before you commence to read.

I must, dear reader, conclude this epistle now as our regiment has much to prepare for a certain royal wedding. Please forgive my brevity. I can however commend this work to you and hope you find as much pleasure reading it as I did.

Earnestly yours,

Colonel Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins IV

It’s Back!

The authors of Parwich Heights have been indisposed over the Summer. One took a villa in Tuscany and had a fling with a tempestuous Italian painter. Another became a stowaway in a merchant vessel that survived terrible storms in the Indian ocean. Yet another retired to her scottish castle and composed her magnum opus – concerto for bagpipes and orchestra.

But the summer is at an end and duty tugs at the heartstrings of each of our creative dream weavers. The demands of an expectant public cannot go unheeded for ever. The next instalment of Parwich Heights is about to be published!  The hour has been chosen: midnight on Friday October 1st. No queueing outside bookshops is necessary – the Parwich Heights website will suffice.

If you need to refresh your memory on the story so far, click on the image below.

Prepare yourself for an epic read!

Parwich Heights

The sunlight had long passed by the time Annie drove into the picturesque Derbyshire village. It was dusk and there was nobody to be seen. The lights from the cosy stone cottages were starting to twinkle. As she passed the village green, she could hear the faint sound of folk music coming from the pub. “Typical!” she thought, “I’m trying to forget everything and I cannot get away from listening to the very type of music my late fiancé used to adore”.

You see, Annie was trying to escape the memories of that terrible day one year ago, when she had veered from delirious happiness to the depths of despair. Annie and Quentin had been flying to the island of Madagascar for their dream wedding when a frightful sound came from the port engine. Captain Dirk Scrimshank’s calm voice came over the loudspeaker. “Ladies and gentlemen, we are experiencing some technical difficulties and need to divert to a nearby airport. On behalf of Utopian Airlines we apologise for any convenience caus…..”. The Captain’s reassuring voice was suddenly interrupted by the sound of a similar blast on the starboard side of the aircraft. Immediately, the aircraft started to lose height and banked alarmingly to the left. Annie remembered that her complimentary glass of champagne had spilled from the table and the sight of mountains had loomed larger than life, filling the small window of the aircraft. Events after that point were a blur. All she knew now was that Quentin had perished, and her life as she knew it was over.

Who could blame Annie for her distracted thoughts as she made her way into that little village. Time after time she tried to make sense of the chain of events that had led her to this point in her life. Many times, hours had passed as she tried to answer that one nagging question in her mind – “Why?”.

Suddenly, her thoughts were arrested as she heard a bump and saw a shadowy figure sprawl across the bonnet of her car. “Oh my goodness” she thought, “I’ve rented a house in this obscure little village to make a new life, and I’ve run someone over on my very first day!”. Annie was mortified as she quickly brought her 2CV to a halt. She opened the door and was greeted by the sight of a dishevelled but striking gentleman………

Over to you for the next instalment!
