About the Book
Geenie Swaboda was quite content living what others considered a humdrum life, but things took a harsh turn when someone from her past was murdered.
At the shiva of her former fiancé, Geenie was approached by a reporter named Jack. Then another man appeared - with a firearm.
It seems Geenie's mother was one sought out; just as her grandmother: part of a bloodline people have tried to extinguish as far back as World War Two. Even if Geenie is a case of mistaken identity, the people after her will shoot first and ask questions later.
CAUTION: Contains intense situations; graphic action; grim depictions of war and death.
About this work:
This is a first draft of a novel I started during NaNoWriMo 2008. It may be the most "mainstream" of the current Leanpub offerings. It's a work of fiction rooted in some truths, and maybe even holds a touch of romance.
My best estimate is this story is 75% of the way through. It surely needs a full rewrite (or few) after completion. I haven't committed to the actual ending yet…which is where a Leanpub audience comes in.
An unfinished novel which fan inspiration can help complete. Anyone purchasing this title will have direct contact with me: meaning they can offer their own input or suggestions to improve my novel. Supporters can help influence the actual ending of this book, aside from a number of small details which I can go into later.I will keep updating this until it seems ready for a physical release. Buyers will be along for the ride; seeing whatever revisions are done. Expect one major revision and at least one hard polish beyond the completed first draft.
