About the project
Peter's book project started with line editing. Once he had been through our changes and updated the manuscript, we did a further proofread.

Peter worked with our marketing team on Marketing Stage 1 Package . From this, we developed the blurb, and created a cover with impact, as well as finalising the metadata for publication.

We applied our Ebook Designer's Touch™ to the ebook and converted it ready for vendors. Once Peter was happy, we uploaded the book to our usual vendors.

About the book
Twelve-year-old Paul loves to walk the train tracks of suburban Adelaide. One day as he’s walking with his faithful Jack Russell, he witnesses something he doesn’t understand. He buries the memory deep in his subconscious, choosing instead to dwell on dreams.

As an adult, his memory comes rushing back and Paul has to confront the demons of his past, as he relives memories of how the principal of his school took special care of him, loving him in a way that his distant father never had. But that love turned out to be far more sinister.

Can Paul reveal these memories to the investigative team? Can he expose his wounds to his wife and fix their marriage? Will remembering the secrets heal him?
