I have pasted below the opening paragraph to the first of five series of books I am writing, I am a little 'iffy' about the opening paragraph and hope many of you can let me know what you think
Chapter OneReal life is boring.
A Star is Born
Occasionally something can happen that may be ever so slightly interesting, something that gets the blood pumping and adrenaline running briefly, but inevitably it would fade away and life would return to what it is.
Normality is the only sure thing in the world today, every day is the same and nothing out of the ordinary ever happens, itís as boring as a silent person on a rollercoaster.
But what if it wasnít? What if something extraordinary happened every day and that we were all too accustomed to our mundane lives of work and school to even notice what was going on in the world? What if something out of this world began to happen without evolution? Or radioactive waste? Or botched science experiments? What if you could be chosen for something bigger, something out of your control? Would you really jump at the chance to leave the life of normality behind for something wild and dangerous? Would you? What if you one day made a wish to a shooting star and it granted you every dream you ever had? Would you recognise the nightmare? Sometimes we cry out for something extraordinary to happen to us, begging for a release from the harsh light of day and the cruel reality that is real life, but we donít realise what is right front of us because, truthfully, normality means safety and comfort. Normality is what ensures we sleep at night and wake up in the morning, fresh as a daisy.
Imagine if all of that was to be ripped out from under you and you were forced away from the normality we claim to hate so much and forced into the world of a Zodiac...
This is aimed at young adults and older people with a vivid imagination, the series of books follow the same group of Zodiacs as their lives change dramtically through each book.
What a Zodiac is will be revealed later!
