Imagine that you self-published your own mystery drama online, and the plot turned out to be a lot closer to the truth than you imagined. In ‘Alternative Outcome’, downbeat journalist Mike Stanhope does just that, and finds himself caught up in a sequence of unsettling events that threaten to become as dramatic as those in his book. Embarking on a search for a girl he knew long ago – someone whose memory he hijacked for his story – he faces a succession of surprises, reverses and revelations as fact and fiction start to intertwine. It’s a pacey and beguiling mix of genres – mystery drama, thriller and romance – and it’s also a gently ironic take on the trials of self-publishing. Read it, and you’ll get a flavour of the complex process it takes to get books like this into your hands in the first place. You’ll also warm to Mike as he struggles to get his life back on track..

Peter Rowlands was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, north-east England, but has lived most of his adult live in London. He has edited and contributed to various transport and logistics magazines over many years, and has drawn on that experience for his first novel, Alternative Outcome.
Peter loves reading mystery dramas and thrillers, and also enjoys building websites (for himself and for paying customers). He likes a broad range of music (Beatles to Ed Sheeran), and sometimes plays guitar – though not in public. He has won awards during his journalist career, but admits it’s a bit premature to be looking for any in the world of fiction.
