Novel Transcript of  HEARING THOUGHTS  by Anthony Diffley

Get to know the winning writer: 

What is your novel about?

My novel is about a young New York city man who aquires the ability to hear other peoples after he mysteriously disappears from his friends, while on a camping trip. He does not know how to properly use this talent at first but when approached by the CIA, questioning about his disappearance, and having lost his wife on 9/11, it doesn’t take him long to know what to do with it.

What genres would you say this novel is in?

Science Fiction, Action Adventure

How would you describe this story in two words?

“Thought Provocative”

What movie have you seen the most in your life?

4) Most Watched Movie: Without a doubt- “The Godfather”

How long have you been working on this novel?

Prior to it being published in 2015, I worked on writing the manuscript, for my novel, in one year but had been working on the story for over five years. I wrote out the original story as a plot for a movie but when I showed it to a professional screenwriter, he suggested I rewrite it as a novel because he felt the story was too complicated to be written within the industry standard, one hundred and twenty page screenplay. He did love the plot though.

Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”

What motivated you to write this story?

Two things- First, the story of Betty and Barney Hill. Second, the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

What artist would you love to have dinner with?

Robert DeNiro

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Hanging out with my children and family.

What influenced you to enter the novel contest?

Because I honestly believe I have written a very mind grabbing, thought compelling book.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Do not rush your work or feel compelled to finish quickly. Take your time and take serious breaks away from your writing. I got my best story ideas for my book right after spending one or two days away from it.

Obiter Dicta – Chapter 1 Novel Reading by Lucian M

Watch the August 2016 Winning Novel Reading.

OBITER DICTA by Lucian M

Novel Performed by actor Julian Ford

Get to know the novelist: 

1. What is your novel about?

A murder leaves a body on display at a Vancouver, Canada public space quickly followed by the assassination of the prime minister of British Columbia that leaves a public in shock. VPD Homicide investigate a trail that leads to various groups vying to grip the political future of British Columbia in their hands. Some seek to do so by democratic means while others pursue the route of armed force. Most disturbing are the groups that seek to establish a government ruled by the Judeo-Christian Ten Commandments that will then act as a springboard to the establishment of a global confederacy of Judeo-Christian states committed to a policy of maintaining their vision of the status quo until the advent of the Apocalypse.

2. Why should this novel be read by people?

From early childhood most of us are exposed to different forms of cookie cutter conformity. Common forms are strict ideologies that traditionally employ coercive forms of psychological terror or manipulation to impose the party line on the not so convinced. Freedom of thought, objective inquiry, and the scientific method are never part of this paradigm. Most disturbing is when conformity evolves into tyranny and unleashes a savage reign of terror. The resulting blood lust is a chapter written too many times in human history.

3. How would you describe this novel in two words?

The 1st chapter introduces the reader to a murder victim laying in a market on Vancouver’s Granville Island, surrounded by a multitude of characters who all hold little pieces of the scandals surrounding the murder in their mind. As the reader jumps from perspective to perspective, the pieces of the scandal begin to come together, and in part it comes to light that the victim was connected to a recently jailed wealthy figure on the island, who is linked to a secret drug trade. The tension grows towards an exciting and deadly climax.

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

I Heard the Owl Call My Name- by Margaret Craven

5. How long have you been working on this novel?

I wrote the first draft in 1996

6. Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

Simon Scarrow

7. What motivated you to write this novel?

The fate of Giordano Bruno, who was burned at the stake for daring to suggest that the stars were just distant suns surrounded by their own exoplanets. He also raised the possibility that these planets could even foster life of their own. Moreover, he insisted that the universe is in fact infinite. (per Wiki)

8. What artist would you love to have dinner with?

Martin Scorsese

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

karate, guitar, rhythmic studies, visual art, skiing, ice skating, language studies

10. What influenced you to enter the Novel Festival?

It was inspiring to discover a committee of professional writers and writing consultants that invited novel submissions. Not only would entering yield full feedback in the form of suggested revisions but also a possible reading by professional actors with subsequent on-line posting

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Stieg Larsson: He had written the Millennium crime trilogy for his own pleasure after returning home from his job in the evening (per Wiki)
