I have to apologize for my absence from posting recently. I have sent a few queries on The Karma Stone, one about a month ago and another more recent. There was no response to the first, so if I do not hear from the other the publishing will begin.
My other issue has been a lack of time, I have been burning the mignight oil at my other job, and just completed a several month long challenge that has taken up a great deal of time. Now that I have completed it, I will be able to focus more on what I love, which is writing. It has been sadly neglected.
A am working on the cover for The Karma Stone and it will be released in both e-book and hard copy. I am looking forward to having it out in print. The subject matter is not for everyone, and deals with a bit of dark murder.
Procrastination is a terrible waste of time, and if I did not already have a completed work I could understand, but I am ready to move forward so should have things in place in the next few weeks. I have however been editing my newest book so I can’t beat myself up too much. Time for the plunge and dust off my pages, beautify it all and go. Will post when all is ready and move on.
I will be completing editing this weekend, and the entry for the contest is Monday. I will be ready with fingers crossed. If I am bumped out early for any reason, I can then move forward on getting published myself. I am nervous and excited. This novel is dark and just a bit creepy, which makes sense, as the concept is about Jack the Ripper’s soul returning though time to conplete his carnage. I have attached the pitch, this will grace the back cover.
Once entry is completed, I will post the excerpt for your viewing entertainment. 🙂
Feel free to leave a comment, I look forward to hearing from you.
The Karma Stone-Mystery/Thriller
Welcome to Darkness
Through the annals of time, one of the most horrific mysteries remains a question. Who was Jack the Ripper? Disappearing as quickly as he appears, he escapes accountability for the brutality and egotistical nature of his crimes. However, Karma is an integral part of life, judging all actions for their corrective purpose.
Delve into this phenomenon for a different take on history. Unable to complete his agenda, the Ripper returns time after time, wreaking his final vengeance on those who draw his ire.
Follow his evil as he moves through the ages. Shifting quickly, he eludes Karma as he continues his murderous intent. Escaping fate as he continues his gruesome deeds, he remains ahead of Karma’s Champion.
Unaware of being shadowed, he visits his brand of terror in a seemingly never-ending loop. Fate takes a stand, as the time of his dominion is past. In his maniacal manner, he has set in motion a chain of events that puts a child at risk. To sever the loop, his final stand brings his past before him in a way he cannot have anticipated.
Unable to elude the hunter he finds the answer to his Karmic balance, as the souls of his past become the justice of his future.
