Finite Misery is the extended prologue to my published novel - The Hereafter - available on Amazon in paperback and e-book. It is about a girl who's had some hard knocks in life who's grey cloud of a life sees a silver lining in the creation of an artificial afterlife. Tired of life, she sees a glimmer of hope for a second chance, the trouble is they don't let suicides in.

With the creation of a man made heaven, life on earth is about to change and this story explores some of the issues and responsibilities attached to man staking his claim in what happens beyond death.

If you like wondering about heaven and hell and the powers that be and whether mankind is independent from all this or as tied in as we always were, this is the story for you.

Thanks to for the cover image.

@TheOrangutan Cheers for the heads up Gav. Not sure what was wrong but I seem to have fixed it!

@TheOrangutan Cheers Gav, I've always liked the opening but always had a subtle doubt somewhere in the back of my mind that I couldn't quite put my finger on. It is a little appeased now.

For some reason the formatting on this one is a little odd, probably wattpad screwing things around, but you might want to take a look, particularly effects the ends of pages...
                              Another clever chapter.

A very neat opening to a new story. The first couple of paragraphs in particular were descriptively stunning, wonderful use of language. I like the horror you convey with the dog too. Nicely done, Gav
