Geenie's Genetics

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.

Completion status:

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.

Leanpub factor:

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.

About the Author

Matt Mesnard

Chided for years by Chris Baty and National Public Radio, this writer broke away from a path of screenplays and independent film to venture into the less structured and often uncivilized world of novels and short stories.

Surviving as a writer of freelance: If you have a literary impasse, if nobody else will help; maybe you can find Mesnard.

Favorite things include: problem solving, rewriting/doctoring for others, music, chatting, making new friends, keeping existing friends, Star Wars, and Oxford commas.

[I write in as many genres as possible. If you haven't seen your favorite, request it.]
