AT 61, I PUBLISHED MY FIRST NOVEL -

A STORY OF PERSEVERANCE

by

Thomas Allbaugh

 

J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of tTe Lord of the Rings, once wrote in the preface to his trilogy that his was a “tale that grew in the telling.” I suppose any writer could say that. I’d also have to say, in a more humble echoing of Tolkien, that my novel was a “tale that grew in the (re)telling.”

There were four retellings, to be exact. As my tale grew, so did my sense of being a writer.

Over six years or so, I brought chapters to two different writing groups. I sent an early draft to four friends—early beta readers. None of them read past page 90. That told me something. 

After a second draft, in the spring of 2012, I showed my work at a writing conference where editors with Christian publishers got more specific. They questioned the main character’s motivation—why would an English professor go on a reality show? I listened to these editors, took my story home, and worked on that motivation.

And then, during the following spring, in 2013, some of these same editors said that they believed the character motivation, but they didn’t think that anyone would want to read about a reality show. That summer, at a Writers Conference near Lake Tahoe, secular editors said that everyone would want to read about a reality show. I should turn the volume up on it.

I kept going, though I no longer thought I was writing a Christian novel.

Entering New Terrain

Writing more revisions, “amping it up,” I wrote the story I wanted to tell.

After more rejections, including one that took over a year, I set the novel aside. Then one of my students asked to read it. I let him, and he suggested that I take my favorite scenes and rethink it.

That summer, I deleted 150 pages from my novel and then started to rework it. And then I began working on a memoir of my sister, who died in 1984. I let the novel go, took it off life support, off everything. I decided that nothing was going to come of it.

I worked on the memoir for a year, and as I did, ideas for my old novel started to come. I went on a writers Retreat center in June with notes that I’d begun taking on my novel. I decided that I was bringing together the last stitches of it into a somewhat coherent narrative. I decided that all the rejection and rewriting was what I had for my schooling as a novelist. In the fall, I sent it out five beta readers, and they liked it. I sent it out again, this time to independent publishers.

After several months of working on other things, I heard from a small publisher named eLectio, a Christian publisher.

The strange thing is that at the same time that I sent my book to eLectio, I had also sent it to four or five secular publishers. I thought I was not a Christian writer. But now my book would be published as a Christian novel.

And that was how my novel came to be published in September, 2017, when I was 61 years old.

In the summer before this, though, as I began to anticipate the release of my novel, titled Apocalypse TV, I suddenly had a brainstorm for a second novel. It has the working title Radio Eden. That’s what I’m working on right now.

 

 

Back Cover Blurb foe Apocalypse TV

When a reality TV scout “discovers” Walter in a diner near the hospice where his father has been placed, his life has reached a low point. His father is dying, his college teaching career is under threat, and his life is adrift. The scout wants him for a reality show about religion. In a more self-assured period of his life, Walter would have rejected her questionable offer outright, but now he wavers and allows himself to be drawn in. Maybe this is the jolt of energy his life needs. Maybe, if the show succeeds, his university will be so impressed that they’ll finally treat him with respect. Maybe the show will even be what the producers promise it will be, a serious inquiry into faith. Maybe he’ll become famous.

The show brings Walter attention, but for all the wrong reasons. He gets misquoted, misinterpreted, misunderstood, and then shot after he has been dragged across the country in an increasingly frustrating and absurd series of challenges. Will his career and reputation survive the public protests? Will his marriage survive the hints of affairs on the road? Will any kind of “reality” emerge to restore his self-respect? 

 

From a review of Apocalypse TV in Online Bookclub: "

The author's evocative writing style challenges readers to consider conflicting perspectives related to social issues and faith. Equally admirable is his ability to convey spiritual principles through fiction revolving around reality television and the potential havoc it creates. The result is a book that leaves an impression that lingers long after the last page is read."
