Coming shortly…. The Way We Lied

Do you have a secret? Have you ever been tempted to tell?
From October 23 I shall be serialising the entire manuscript of The Way We Lied on this site and on the Suzanne Goldring WordPress site.
This completed novel was placed in the Winchester Writers Festival ‘first three pages’ competition and was inspired by a real dinner held to mark the Millennium, after which a time capsule was buried in the garden. At the time I wondered what our guests might have put into their sealed envelopes and this prompted the development of a story which has been described as tightly plotted, with an original premise.
The characters in The Way We Lied are not actually ones I have met in real life, but they are all like people we have heard of. Another reader said the novel is about what it means to be good and certainly the characters have their own moral codes; as they came alive during the writing of this novel, their actions often surprised me and may surprise you too.
The novel has not, so far, been accepted for publication, but has been read with interest. I hope you will enjoy it and I would welcome your comments. Above all, what would you write for a time capsule if you thought your words might not be read in your lifetime? Would you reveal your secrets?
