The Right to Remain Silent by Cole Parker

Recommended Posts

What can one say about this story other than it is classic Cole Parker. A really interesting story, well told, which is enjoyable to read. Highly recommended.

Thanks, Gordon, and by the way, you posted here some time ago that you had several stories partly written.  Some of us are still waiting anxiously.  I love your writing!


Cole, one of the serial novels I am working on "Living with Johnny" is now approaching its end. Just written chapter 61, suspect I have ten more chapters to do, then the epilogue. Then it is down to re-writing and editing. Hope to get it finished this summer.

Thanks for the update!  71 chapters!  Wow!


Yes, considering it was meant to be a short story.

It's a valid point, though, even if funny.  I'd guess many of us have had that experience, getting started and then both the story and the characters taking on a life of their own, and the need growing to go beyond the limits one had originally envisioned.  I've turned many an expected 8,000 word short story into a 30,000 word novella.  I'm sure Nigel and I aren't alone with this.


Although, perhaps from short story to 71 chapters is taking things to extremes.

A short story! Grown up to be 61 and counting plus 10 more (and an epilogue). So, ONLY 10 more? Huh!
