UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

I have approved (and added to) the publisher's edits for SCORN which means it has been given the all-clear for launch. As soon as I find out the release date, I will let you know.

If you've read the first two books in the trilogy, I'm sure you have several questions that you'd like to see answered. Before I started writing SCORN, I wrote out all of the questions that I personally wanted answers for, and I made sure that is exactly what I did. So let me assure you, your questions will be answered in this final book, hopefully to your satisfaction. That's not to say that everything will be all wrapped up in a tidy little package with a pretty polka-dot bow, but I hate excessive ambiguity in stories. I like to engage the readers' imaginations but it's a storytellers responsibility to tell a story, not tease the reader and say "well, what do you think happened?"

So is the list of questions, in no particular order, that guided me as I sculpted SCORN. If you have others, perhaps they will be answered as well. Or perhaps not :-)

1. What will happen to Patric?
2. What will happen with Natasha and her child?
3. What will happen to Christine and Claude?
4. What will happen to Father DeMarco?
5. What will happen to Julian?
6. What will happen with the American Christian Militia?
7. What will happen to the Christian church and the Satanic church?
8. What will happen to the woman in black?
9. How did Patric get his ability to hear demons?

You'll find out the answers very soon!

QUICK UPDATE

The publisher has sent me the edits for SCORN, so after I give it one more read-through, it will be unleashed! I'm also in the middle of my second round of editing for CYN. My usual M.O. is two read-throughs on the computer, then I print it out and read a physical cop y and then send it off to the publisher. I'm expecting to have that all completed in a month so look for a summer release date.





 















Our new home is far superior to any place my family has lived before but one disadvantage is that my office doubles as my baby daughter's bedroom, which means my prime writing time in the evening is vaporized. But I'm one of those write-anywhere kind of people (I'm also a sleep-anywhere person too) so the words will flow regardless. After SCORN and CYN are out the door, I'll begin constructing my next monster, aptly titled BEAST! It's going to be a scorching summer!

INDELIBLE IS HERE!

Well, it seems the publisher pulled the old switcheroo...instead of releasing SCORN (which is still right around the corner), they have released INDELIBLE, my long-delayed contemporary fiction novel. If you're looking for gripping, violent action, ominous and foreboding atmosphere, and ultra-Gothic thrills and chills...then you should read my other books. INDELIBLE is a "one off" book in my "Two On, One Off" writing schedule, meaning that I write two dark spiritual thrillers and then one book in a different genre.

But INDELIBLE is no cupcake. Just look at the cover. It's an intense character study that doesn't need demons and gunfights to give it an edge. It's far lighter than my other offerings but it's still a Mark Carver book. You'll find betrayal, pain, doubt, shattered relationships...as well as comedy, sarcasm, drunken ramblings, a flatulent dog, and more rock and roll than you can shake a broadsword at. I guarantee that it's unlike any other book you've read before.

Head over to Amazon.com and grab INDELIBLE for Kindle for only $2.99! The paperback edition will be coming soon. INDELIBLE - one choice can change everything, and some choices can never be erased.
