How are you doing?
It'll be spring time in a few weeks here in Wales. Anydays now, the flowers would have flourished, leaves would have come out of their retreats and winter will be gone. What other better way to celebrate the coming of spring if it wasn't for my new, second novel after After the Storm? I'm truly excited!
I've been working for it for nearly eleven months and now it's almost ready to come out and greet you all. And I most certainly am over the top to finally share the details of my new novel, which truthfully speaking has drained a lot of my energy out. A lot of medical researches have been made and it took me a couple of attempts to finally settle with a lot of things. Trust me, writing isn't all cupcakes and whipping cream on top!
But I'm very happy with how it has turned out. The result is hopefully a book with a completely different vibe than in After the Storm, realistic reminisce to the year 1991, onliest characters and of course a lot more lesson to be learnt. InsyaAllah...
So, without further ado, I proudly present:
One Minute to Midnight
By: Diyar Harraz
Release date: April/May 2015
One last moment.
A second chance.
And the clock is ticking...
The fortuitous events of meeting her future husband, and eventually, becoming a young mother herself, has unexpectedly shed some light on Sasha's mixed and confused emotional well-being - she knows it has something to do with her past. A grainy truth that had nearly costs her life. But she is determined to put it behind her and move on, until the unexpected happened.
Her son is diagnosed with a terminal illness and suddenly Sasha is whirl back to where she started; to the memories she’d rather forget. Bombarding with the excruciating, long list of unmatched donors and the inevitability that her only child has little time left, she is forced to track her way back to the family she no longer wish to be associated with.
Growing up as a shadow child, can Sasha fit the pieces of jigsaw back together and will she be able to make amend with the woman of her past? Can she do it in time, before everything becomes too late?
One Minute to Midnight is a piercing, heart-breaking portrayal of how one, sinful mistake between two persons would lead to a life-threatening situation of a third.
PS: One Minute to Midnight will be out in time for the 2015's KL International Book Fair. Don't forget to look out for it!
