Limbo: A Novel by Glenn Campbell

This experimental 247-page novel is NO LONGER AVAILABLE - to avoid detracting from my better novel, Harper Junction.

Limbo was my "practice" novel, written in less than two months as a challenge to myself. On Dec. 19, 2013, I woke up from a dream and decided to turn it into a novel. I had only one scene from the story in my head: a man running away from something on beach. The rest I had to figure out on the fly. I intended to write one chapter a day, and once a chapter was written, I didn't allow myself to change it. (I could only fix typos and obvious clarity problems, but I couldn't alter the narrative.) I announced what I was doing on Facebook and set a target of 60 days to complete and publish it.

The novel was uploaded as an ebook on Amazon on Feb. 12, 2014, "on time and under budget." To me, the most remarkable thing about this novel is that I finished it! I had started many novels in the past, but this was the first one I completed.

On Oct. 18, 2016, I removed this novel from Amazon because I didn't want it to distract from my much more sophisticated novel, Harper Junction, which I started writing immediately after I finished Limbo. That one took 10 months to write and was based on a story I had been thinking about for years.

I am now offering Limbo for free to interested readers. Just download this PDF. However, I urge you to read Harper Junction first, as that is the better novel. (A generous free sample is available on Amazon.) Although I letting individuals read it, I still reserve all rights, and I could withdraw the free version at any time.
