A Walk Along the Promenade

   (1 review)
Genres: General Fiction
Sub-genres: Drama

One evening, in one man’s life when everything will change.


Shaun’s disabled leg has affected his entire life, causing a downward spiral he neither likes nor can live with. It is not just that his life is on hold, it is now falling backwards. On holiday in Scarborough (A northern English seaside resort), he finally faces the realities of his life and decides to take matters into his own hands. A walk along the town’s promenade to clear his thoughts and to help him make up his mind, if only the town’s numerous seagulls would stop following him.

This novella is written in six different scenes, but those scenes are of very different in lengths. I have divided this story up into 2,000 words sections for serialisation, which required some of the scenes to be divided up into different parts, while some of the scenes will be published as a single section. Each part will flow directly into the next one.


This was written for adult readers, with adult themes and emotions, some of which may be uncomfortable. It also contains descriptions of violence and scenes of a sexual nature.

Following a brutal attack Shaun feels that his life is over with the physical and emotional pain being too much to bare. Thankfully a chance encounter makes him rethink and realise that life is worth living. This emotional journey evokes feelings in the reader that are hard to ignore. It is a really good recommended read.
