ompleting the rough outline for a novel, a fusion of contemporary techno-horror and suspense, using some of the backstory from a recent 7k word short story sale. It promises to be fun and very fast-paced, in the style of Michael Crichton and James Patterson.
Main characters and story arc -- events over five days -- are pretty much there, and I need to get started very quickly to take advantage of an “open reading” period being extended to writers-without-agents by Angry Robot books later this spring. Not to mention several other potential book publishers.
More on this project to come.
