Whew. So most of the EMT class is behind me, and I managed to squeak my story into Notes from Undergound. I also got out a short story submission, and received a rejection. And, at my straight job, the end of fall crunch is giving way to a bit of a holiday calm.
And so, with all that behind me it strikes me, almost as a revelation: "Oh yeah. I'm writing a book."
Back to the grindstone that I love best!
In case you don't know about my book, here's the scoop:
Working title: Sublimation
Genre: Psychological suspense
Working tagline: When man is caught between good and evil, he must overcome both.
Working blurb synopsis: Alec Smith is a business man and gambler who plays in the shadowy edges of the law. Grey Kinjou is an off-the-books federal investigator known as the Detangler, who who holds the Law as sacred. When a high-stakes gambling operation in Denver results in the bombing of a family home in Iowa City, business man and secret agent find themselves caught up in a battle of fanatics -- some of whom believe Smith to be their figurehead. Soon Smith realizes that he cannot bluff his way through every situation, and The Detangler must choose between Law and family. In the dark, a man named Jones smiles and laughs, hoping for their mutual destruction.
Pull quote: “God goes about his business. The devil goes about his business. And sin is what they create to to keep mortals distracted so they don't interfere.”
And now... I must put pencil to paper and continue making this thing a reality.
In the meantime, I'd love to hear updates on what you're working on -- and, hey, here's a question for you. Admitting that a working title for a WIP has little chance of ending up the published title, I still would like to nail a title. Without going into any of the reasons why, my three options are Sublimation, Antigone, or The Antigone sublimation. Love to hear what you think! There's a poll for that!
