A
GRIPPING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER FOR FANS OF KING AND KOONTZ!



Would
you be willing to make a deal with the devil to have your hopes and
dreams come true?

Witnessing
a lightening bolt on a sunny day, author Alexa Wainwright doesn't
realize she's been transported to an alternate universe. Here, she
meets media mogul and publisher King Blakemore who offers her a
lucrative book contract that will guarantee her comeback. 

This
publisher seems odd. This book deal is too good. Suddenly, the
contract's been signed. Now what can she do?

Desperate
to get her life back, Alexa devises schemes to untether herself from
this hellish existence but to no avail. Can Alexa find her way out of
this nightmare?

Buy
this book if you're a reader who loves a page-turning,
heart-stopping, psychological thriller with some magical realism
thrown in. 

"RIVETING"--Kirkus
Reviews











I
get so much satisfaction in the writing process. I take care to
choose just the right word, to make sure each sentence has the right
cadence. I appreciate other writers who respect the craft in this
way, and I hope my readers do so with me. Writing is a need, a desire
for expression, and springs from well within my subconscious mind.
Thoughts rise up, scenes rise up and blend in with the over-arching
story. These thoughts emerge whenever they want to and wherever I am
and probably not when I am at the computer. The computer is for the
craft, the technique. The thoughts come during walks, or while
driving the car, or at the grocery store. I am the willing recipient
of these thoughts and so they seek me out. It's a mystery this
business and art of writing and it keeps me enthralled.

Where did you come up with the names in the story?

The character name of King Blakemore was chosen through deliberate research. The name Blakemore means dark or black. Hence, King of darkness—Satan.
My mother’s maiden name was Lipschitz so the surname of Alexa and her mother is a respectful nod to my now deceased mother.
Kip was just an inspiration from my muse. Wealthy people seem to have nicknames, like the Kennedy clan.
