Question: What is it about a novel that hooks readers? Answer: The characters. Maybe you answered plot instead. A strong plot is necessary, but it always comes down to how the plot influences the main characters and the main characters influence the plot. Character and plot development work in tandem. And the more developed they both are, the better. But character development is primary. Reader... Read more of this blog post »

When The Serpent Bites (Literature & Fiction)
5 chapters   —   updated Sep 07, 2015 07:44PM
Description: Will be published - October 30, 2015 Frederick Starks has it all—a gorgeous wife who was his high school sweetheart, three beautiful children, a mansion and cars others envy, millions in the bank, respected in his community, admired by his employees, loved and respected by loyal friends. He revels in the hard-earned power and control he’s acquired. As the saying goes, “All that glitters is not gold,” which Starks discovers when gut-wrenching betrayal by his wife sends him over the edge and into a maximum security prison. There, Starks is a new “fish,” stripped of nearly everything he’s always relied on. In that place, where inmates and guards have their own rules and codes of conduct, Starks is forced to face the darker side of life, and his own darker side, especially when the betrayals, both inside and outside the prison, don’t stop. He must choose which path to follow when the line between right and wrong becomes blurred: one that leads to getting out of the physical and emotional hellhole he finds himself in or one that keeps him alive.

Nesly Clerge Pleasure to have made your acquaintance, Cory. Thank you for the kind words. My book is about choices, consequences and the complexities of human emotions. It's actually on the opposite extreme of science. I'll keep you updated once it comes out.

Enjoy your day,

Nesly

Cory Tsuhako Thanks for becoming a Goodreads friend! I can't wait to see how you book does, sounds like your science background might give you a unique perspective.
