The first draft of my manuscript is finally complete at roughly 96,500 words. It has been a long couple of months, but I’m genuinely happy with where the story ended up. It has been a completely organic project, almost from the beginning, and has grown and evolved into what it is now. I had a vague idea where to begin and where to end, but the body of the work built on itself day after day with no set outline. The main characters, both male and female, go through hell and back trying to survive the gods and aspiring gods around them. An All-American Nightmare has both strong male and female characters that stand up against their fears to survive. It is written in a chronologically set POV style, reminiscent of A Game of Thrones, in order to tell the story through the views of all of the characters important to the story. The reader will get a chance to know Charlie, Sheriff Lucas, Flash, Lilly, Kelly, Rose, Rhino, Finney, and Jerry, along with others, feeling their fears, experiencing their pain, and drinking in their adrenaline as they buckle in for this wild ride.
