Codename: UnSub, OUT TODAY
Codename: UnSub is out today. Yippie.
For those of you who haven't been on the site this week, Codename UnSub is about.... 200 pages.
Actually, it's about a serial killer running around a dystopian nightmare version of San Francisco. Well, even more so than it already is. This killer is professionally trained, deadly as Hell, and if he isn't stopped in time, might accidentally bring about the end of the world.
But hey. no pressure.
To be honest, I can't tell you too much about the development of this particular psycho. I can't tell you if his profile came first, or the character came first, and I built him up around the profile I generated.
I just ended up with one of the better villainous bastards I've ever created. Wholly evil, no shred of remorse, and no conscience whatsoever. In short, someone who makes the Joker look like a choir boy.
I have, from long ago and far away, my blog casting Codename: Winterborn if it were a film.
While I will make certain to post at least one more scene from Codename: UnSub before next week is out, I already posted on a few years ago. When you're done reading that, you can purchase the book and read the rest of it. I wrote an entire blog post explaining why I had set chapter one before the end of Winterborn, and chapter two set in in between the last two chapters of the novel.
There was the announcement from last week where I mentioned what the novel was about.
I mentioned my interest in serial killers a few days ago. I find them interesting, though let's face it, I'm not the only one who does. After all, Criminal Minds has been on for over a decade now. But I have my limits. It usually involves sexually based deviancy. I don't do rape, or children. Period. Thank you. My deviancy quota will only take so much.
And, of course, I had Mandy. The next excerpt I have in mind to post will star Mandy. Perhaps even her first appearance in the novel.
There you have it, everything on UnSub to date. With luck, you'll go out and just buy the novel already. Enjoy.
