I just figured out a way to end my novel, leave it with a huge cliff-hanger leading into the next book in the series and spread out the mystery.
Oh god, this is good.
Is it a little bit crazy that I just now decided why my main character was going through this whole clue hunt in the first place? Maybe, but I have less than 3000 words to write before I hit 50,000.Once I finish writing and before starting the editing process, I’m going to start drawing pictures and sketches that will go in the book.
I am more than a little giddy about finishing. Part of me wants to just stay awake and finish it all tonight, but another part of me realizes that it’s 1:30am and I should definitely go to sleep. The conundrum!
The Infernal Detective Launches with an Online Puzzle
Even the Supernatural Has Laws
Misterio press launches THE INFERNAL DETECTIVE, by Kirsten Weiss, with a free online prequel/game for mystery fans.
THE INFERNAL DETECTIVE, the fourth book in the Riga Hayworth series, published by misterio press, will be available on Amazon May 21, 2013.
To promote the novel, the author created an alternate reality game – a virtual “novella” in the world of The Infernal Detective. The Infernal Detective video book trailer is the gateway to the game, which leads players through character blogs and a Pinterest board.
Hidden in the text are links to stories within stories, and a scavenger hunt for a “junk oracle.” The first fifty players to solve the game and report in to the author will receive an advance electronic copy of The Infernal Detective for Kindle, Nook, or Kobo.
The game goes “live” May 1, 2013.
The Infernal Detective, Coming May 21st, 2013
When Riga Hayworth finds a dead body in her bedroom a week before her wedding, it’s par for the course. When the corpse drives off with her fiancée… That’s a problem.
Riga knows dead. More intimately than she’d like. So when a murdered photographer gets up and walks away, she’s believes there’s necromancy afoot. And when she discovers that several of her wedding guests are under the influence of dark magic, she’s certain. But how can she catch a killer and stop a necromancer when even her nearest and dearest are lying to her?
Murder. The undead. Irritating relatives. The Infernal Detective is a fast-paced, paranormal mystery, based in Lake Tahoe.
About the Author:
Kirsten worked overseas for nearly fourteen years, in the fringes of the former USSR and deep in the Afghan war zone. Her experiences abroad not only gave her glimpses into the darker side of human nature, but also sparked an interest in the effects of mysticism and mythology, and how both are woven into our daily lives.
Now based in San Mateo, CA, she writes paranormal mysteries, blending her experiences and imagination to create a vivid world of magic and mayhem.
Kirsten has never met a dessert she didn’t like, and her guilty pleasures are watching Ghost Whisperer reruns and drinking good wine.
Caves of Steel Movie is Coming!
It has been reported that 20th Century Fox is planning a movie adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s classic novel the Caves of Steel.
Henry Hobson has been noted as the director and John Scott 3 is the screenwriter.
I am anxious to see how quickly this project moves and what type of budget will be put behind it.
I love movies and I love Asimov…I can’t wait!
If you want to download the Caves of Steel eBook I would highly recommend taking a read through this novel.
Some random dialogue from my mystery novel
(Totally pimping my writing out, NBD)
Elias flumped down into his swivel chair, pulling at his shirt collar and wheezing. “It’s as dry as a skeleton fart out there, dude.”
Conway dragged a hand over his face, grimacing. “Please don’t talk to me.”
“It is, okay? It’s dry and it’s hot and every morning when I wake up it feels like a small, furry animal, maybe a mouse or a chipmunk, crawled into my mouth sometime during the night, had little mousy-chipmunk babies, and then died there. And then the babies, without their mother to support and nurture them, perished as well. They died there, Conway. They died in my mouth, alone and scared.”
“There is something very, very wrong with you.”
“I want to go to the beach. Wanna ditch work and come to the beach with me?”
“There are no beaches around here, we are in the city. And even if there were, I would not go to the beach with you, because I hate you.”
“We could go on a road trip. We could camp out and make s’mores and have some of those awesome mini-hotdogs. They’re good with cheetos.”
“You think everything is good with cheetos, including cheetos.”
“Cheetos dipped in melted cheeto-sauce. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it, man.” Spinning his chair to face Conway, Elias winked flirtatiously and undid the first two buttons of his shirt.
Conway glared at him. “Stop that.”
“Baby, you don’t have to worry none. When it comes to you, all my lovin’ is free.”
“You’re not making any sense, Fenn. Are you inebriated?”
“If I was in-ee-bree-ay-ted, or you know, as normal people say it, drunk, you and I would be having hot, sweaty, slightly violent man-sex on this here desk.” He patted the table fondly. “But no, I just ate a lot of candy. Julie the intern gave it to me.”
