Let me start by saying how thankful I am for the support that everyone has given since submitting Tainted to Inkshares! Now that Knott’s Scary Farm is up and running, and scarier than ever, I now have the time to turn my attention back here! I wanted to start by divulging a bit of information about the book.
I started writing Tainted a few years back as a pet project, using it as a much needed creative outlet. In that time, it grew from a very loose concept into a fully realized manuscript ready for a final edit, and hopefully publishing!
As some of you know, earlier this year I finished the spec script to promote bringing my vision from page to screen! I am including the opening scenes for your review. The script is still just a draft, and I am new to the script writing game, so please let me know what you think! Enjoy!
Tainted is a fast-paced supernatural horror novel. It’s dark and gritty portrayal of a young man succumbing to the darkness hidden within him, and the subsequent struggle to regain control of his own body, will leave you speechless and yearning for more!
Alex has been plagued by nightmares for as long as he can remember. Images of death and chaos assault him on a nightly basis only to be lost the moment he wakes. They have left him a timid shell of a man, yet humorously sassy. After being viciously attacked while on vacation with his friends, something is awoken within him, a creature from his darkest nightmares... and it’s hungry.
Stuck in the middle of nowhere, Alex’s friends are blissfully unaware of the changes that are happening within him. As he fights to control an unnatural hunger that wells in the pit of his stomach, a blinding rage creeps into his thoughts, altering his normally calm disposition. the struggle for control is exhausting, and if Alex is unable to regain control of his rampaging emotions, it looks like his friends may be the only thing that can satisfy his hunger.
