Twitch, my enovella from Suspense Publishing was released yesterday (July 15th) and the response was quite inspirational and moving. Simply implying and mentioning my appreciativeness doesn’t seem to fully express my gratitude and say enough, for I am fully beholden by it all.
The reviews have varied from good to great and seem to hold a common theme…that this novella could easily have been a novel. And, I agree. I would also be lying if I said the thought hadn’t crossed my mind too. So, I guess they are not the only ones who want more Twitch.
Regardless, considering I look at myself as a short story writer, I limited the tale. Oh, believe me; I had plenty more in store. I just didn’t include it. I think that maybe it was that I was somewhat unsure of whether it would be accepted or not. Well, it was and hindsight is always 20/20 so there’s no use in crying over spilt blood now.
And so, I’ve begun a prequel telling even more and will allow the reader into Twitch’s thoughts along the way through his gruesome filled middle story. But, I am wrestling a bit with making this tale a standalone, but I think I can…I think I can…
This tale has been inside for a long time and I feel as the fans do…that the story just isn’t quite finished yet…and so, I want to get it out. Well, the only way this will happen is for me to tell it…and I will. Of course, right now, I can’t say when the tale will be finished, or whether a publisher will accept, but I do have optimistic and realistic ideas on both.
In the meanwhile, pick up a copy of Twitch and I'm sure you will understand.
And, be sure to check out my blog tour for both a little insight into my mind, as well as to explore other up and coming writers. For we are all dark friends with a single mutual interest…to scare you!
