Last year, my 13 year old daughter challenged me to write a novel in 30 days for NaNoWriMo. We had a wonderful month of writing side by side, and both of us completed our first novels. Over the past year, I’ve been working on polishing and recording my podcast novel, Time for the Fair. It is a time travel fantasy about family, loss, grief, being 13, and going to the Fair.
This winter, I will be podcasting the story, one chapter a week from this site.
To whet your appetite, here is a promo for the podcast.
It has been one hell of a summer for Billy MacCauley . His mom died from cancer in May. His dad has drifted away, drowning in his own grief. His grandfather, Pops, has forgotten almost everything and everybody he ever knew. And his Aunt Sue has moved into their lives trying to pick up all the pieces.
For just one day, all Billy wants is to be a normal 13 year old boy and have one perfect day at the fair with his family. He ends up getting much more than he bargained for. Now all he wants is to go home to his family.
Time for the Fair is an original podcast novel by Sean McGaughey. You can find it at https://sean.mcgaughey.ca/timeforthefair.
