The Novel Is Finished

26 Jul

For those people who read and loved “The Shelter” you’ll be happy to hear that I’ve finished the follow up novel, “The Devil’s in New Hope City.” The novel is 50,000 words (approximately 250 pages).  The story follows the life of Sunni Brown after she leaves the shelter and moves to New Hope, a small southern city mired in poverty. Here’s the blurb:

“After four years of hellish cruelty in a sex trafficking gang, Sunni Brown moves to a southern city mired in poverty and despair. Her mom disappears and Sunni must fend for herself. But when the jaded teen meets a disillusioned cop, will hatred, rage and the burning desire for bloody revenge morph her from a helpless victim into raging vigilante?”

The novel is on schedule for it’s Fall 2012 release. Stay tuned for a cover reveal and sample chapters. To receive updates about the release date please sign up for the mailing list.

    I thought you said you wrote realistic fiction. How many Thai prostitutes have you heard of that decide they are going to become street vigilantis? The accounts I have read of reporters, who try to get them out of the lifestyle, is that they return to it. It is all they know. Sad.

    I think you are confusing sim realism, with reality.

      Yes, I write realistic fiction, an emphasis on fiction. Fortunately there are no Thai prostitutes in my novel. But you’re right, so many prostitutes do return to the life and some don’t. And some seek revenge.

      [ETA] You should check out this link about an all female vigilante gang in India. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/02/26/meet-the-woman-behind-indias-pink-vigilantes.html Very interesting. So many stories simply don’t get told and some never get conceived because we have notions that prevent us from imagining particular scenarios. I don’t think it’s unrealistic to imagine a teen girl vigilante; but I understand if others don’t agree. Thanks for stopping by Russell!
