Product Description
Where is Adam?

Julie Raynes’ husband has been missing for six months. Devastated and confused, she refuses to believe that he would leave her voluntarily, though her best friend thinks differently. However, her Aunt Alice, a psychic, tells her Adam has been murdered, and when she reveals how she knows this, any hope that Adam is still alive, dissipates.

The police are also beginning to believe that Adam Raynes was murdered. And Julie is their prime suspect. Her life in ruins, Julie vows to hunt down whoever is responsible for Adam’s murder and make them pay for their crime.

In the meantime, David Gray, a young man who was pulled from a lake by a fisherman when he was 9 years old, wakens from a coma after nearly two decades. Unknown to Julie, Adam and David share a dark connection, a darkness that threatens to devour both of them, in a terrifying race with death.

I aimed for, and surpassed, in the first nine days, 7,000 words a day to first draft standard work in 2017. I have a full novel drafted, and a series outlined. The story's missing parts finally fell into place today. As it all needs to be gone back over many times, this will most likely fall back to 1000 words per day once finished.

In lieu of words this weekend, I did wraparound covers for paperbacks. Did seven of them.

And I made a scrumptious bacon corn chowder yesterday.

Back to work today.

Chowder only counts if there is enough to share.

I had two bowls, my wife had two bowls, and I gave her the leftovers for lunch today.

Sorry.

1,501 words. A nice recovery.

*tosses cigarette on the ground* I'm spent.

At 8,701 for the year. A little behind.

Woke up at 2:45ish this morning and decided to head downstairs. Had coffee running through me by 3:30, so I decided to get some work done while my wife slept.

1,518 for today. Need to rest before I go cover a game tonight.
