I’m doing things a little different this time. Instead of choosing self-publishing as my first option, I have submitted the MS of my newest crime thriller to a publisher. I will see how this pans out. The publisher’s editor said he would like to see my completed MS, so I sent it to him. As for the MS, I have reread it at least ten times and made edits. I think it is in good shape now. I am not ruling out self-publishing. I’m just trying to see if I can increase my sales by going the traditional publishing route. In any case, my latest thriller will be published, one way or the other.
A distressed young woman falls under the spell of a homicidal maniac and becomes his partner in murder in this disturbing psychological thriller.
Pondering suicide sitting on a Malibu dock one night after running away from home, doe-eyed young Mina Deerling meets smooth-talking Gage Catton, who is trying to load his wife’s body, which is wrapped in a blanket, onto his boat. When Catton finds out to his shock that his wife is still alive in the blanket, he talks the distraught Mina into helping him finish her off with his knife. Together they put out to sea and, miles from shore, toss his wife’s body overboard with an anchor bound to it.
Mina learns that Catton faked his death a year ago and was trying to collect his half of the life insurance payout from his wife when he discovered she had double-crossed him and absconded with all of the money for herself.
Now Catton wants that money, and he’ll do anything to get it, including using Mina to help him achieve his goal in a psychopathic relationship that forces Mina to confront the horrors that lurk in the darkest corners of her mind in a nerve-racking voyage of self-discovery.
I rewrote the last chapter of my latest psychological thriller. I think I got it right now. Which begs the question, how many times do you have to rewrite a novel till you know it’s right? This is about the tenth time I’ve redone this book–most of the corrections minor, but corrections nonetheless.
PS: After I wrote the preceding paragraph, I returned to my thriller and rewrote the last chapter once again. Have I reached the finish line yet? I hope so.
