#BlogTour Too Early For Death by Simon Farrant

Today it's my turn on the BlogTour Too Early for Death by Simon Farrant.
About the Author
I am an emerging author, a submission to a short story anthology kicked it all off. Black Cat is my first short story, and the hero isn’t maybe who you would assume.

Originally from Doncaster, South Yorkshire and now Corby in Northants. I’m in my forties, married with three children. We share our home with a Bengal cat and a Pink Tongued Skink.

I’ve been lucky enough to have had an interesting (well to me!) life. I have been a truck driver, university graduate and motorbike salesman amongst other things.

My two novellas, Newdon Killers series, The Crucifix and Famously Ordinary are out now! The third book, Death Dolls is coming soon estimated launch date 22 August. Later this year a new series in a different genre Mystery / contemporary fantasy will be published.
I have a Facebook page, Simon Farrant Official, I'd be pleased to see you there.

About the book
Death can take you to the most unexpected places.

Damien Lennon finds himself on a mysterious island… and dead.
He has more questions than answers. Why? Where? How? What next?
In a place where forests hide secrets and a leader rules with an iron fist, can Damien change his destiny?

'Too Early for Death' starts a journey through the Limbo Island trilogy, a series that unravels a story of life after death, hierarchy, tragedy, jealousy and eternal love. A heartbreaking yet heartwarming adventure awaits.

They are just an ordinary family on a day trip to the museum. None of them have any idea that the trip will change their lives forever, because one of them disappears into thin air during the visit. A mysterious door leads Damien to a world beyond everything he knows to be true. As he searches desperately for the door that leads back to his wife and son, he slowly realises that there is more going on than meets the eye.

This isn't a case of parallel worlds or a very realistic dream. Time doesn't travel at the same speed, but he is unaware of that and also of his status. Meanwhile his family struggles with the mystery of his disappearance and the finality of his not being around to complete their family. They have to carve out a new existence for themselves, despite not having an explanation.

It's speculative fiction, perhaps even magical realism. A premise that questions whether death is fate, choice or chance. Farrant presents Damien as a man who hasn't followed the rules and ended up on Limbo Island due to his choices, which suggests we have some kind of control over our death and when it happens.

Having read Death Dolls by Farrant I found this one had a more simplistic writing style, perhaps to make it more accessible to a larger group of readers. It was less complex, despite the fantastical concept.
