I have just discovered that a movie called "The Awakening" has just finished shooting and is tackling some of the topics I will be talking about in my new novel, "The Book of Thoth".
The entry on IMDb reads:
"1921 England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she knew in unravels as the 'missing' begin to show themselves."
OK, so my novel will be set in 2011 and 1926 and won't be taking place in a boarding school, but the backdrop of the post-WW1 and ghost apparitions etc. are common themes. I am so original. Damn! It's good I've thrown in a few Egyptian gods and an alchemist to make things even more confusing. :-)
I think therefore I write.
