The novel I started on July 16, 2018 is now over 186,000 words. I project it being finished in four to six weeks. This novel is a horror/crime fiction novel. Below is the opening to the first chapter, which is eponymous with the title of the novel. Once the novel is finished, I will release the title.
GYPSUM (horror novel)
On June 11, 2018, I started a new novel and finished it July 16, 2018. I spent the next two weeks editing and revising it. On August 11, 2018, I received notification Beacon Publishing Group accepted the manuscript (over 500 pages) for publication.
Tentative Gypsum dust jacket synopsis.
When Steven Dobrowski and his family move into their new home, strange things happen. At first, the hauntings perpetuated by the angry spirit are innocuous, but soon turn malicious and dangerous. Not only are the Dobrowskis affected by an entity of the spiritual world, but also by someone of the physical world who is furious Steven moved into the community with his African-American wife and mixed-race children. The family is victimized with threats and vandalism. Who will win the fight between good and evil?
