Have you ever been stuck in a blue funk because you worked so hard to achieve something and nothing seems to be happening? Maybe you did an amazing report at work, and I mean a power point presentation that will knock their socks off. You expected everything from a slap on the back with the boss saying, Nice job to a large promotion or a bonus. Much deserved, too. But instead you get nothing. I mean nada! A big fat zero. It sucks.
Then out of the blue, things turn around. The boss realizes your report is just as awesome as you imagined, and he sends it on to the big cheese in the corporate office. That guy is so impressed, he makes you department head. Now you are over your boss! A happy dance is in order, so you gyrate around the office cubicles while your boss is in a meeting.
Something like that happened to me recently thanks to an article by Vanessa Willoughby for Indie Reader, titled “5 Twisted Thrillers for ‘Gone Girl’ Fans.” You may know that the upcoming movie, directed by David Fincher, will star Academy award-winner Ben Affleck. To my good fortune, the article about the book was picked up and published by Huffington Post. One of the five thrillers Willoughby talks about in her article is my novel, GOOD GONE BAD. And Like GONE GIRL, there is a missing person. Actually in my story, there are two missing. One was murdered and the other…….Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out. The killer of the murdered man is tormented because he fears the second missing man, a witness to the murder, will be found alive and talk to police.
I like to write about tortured souls that are so flawed they make wrong choices that will change their circumstances. Devious decisions set a dark course where there is no more light and no way out. I think that is true about the riveting novel, GONE GIRL as well as my story. Click here to see the full article in Huffington Post.
