Due to the upcoming Nanowrimo, I’ve begun working on my writing again. To be honest, I’d almost given up on my muse, who hasn’t inspired me to write a letter since before the death of my Mother in May. Heck, It’s probably been more than a year since I’ve written anything in actuality. I might even go so far as to say that I’ve been clinically depressed!
For some reason though, this new year of Nanowrimo has brought out some real enthusiasm with this new story that I’ve decided to write. I’ve decided on a working title: “Hunter: Witch Hunter” and eventually I plan to take this new work and merge it with my old “Demon Hunter Diaries” to create one single complete work. It will be my first finished work if it all pulls together as planned.
“Hunter: Witch Hunter” will be a paranormal detective mystery set in Las Vegas, NV. It focuses on the Protagonist Jett Hunter, a 30 something police detective who stumbles upon a coven of very ancient and very established witches living and killing in Las Vegas. Having trained at the Chicago Police Academy, and being a homicide detective with a very logical mind, Jett must overcome the limitations of his mind and accept the fact that the supernatural truly does exist. If he is to be successful in solving the series of crimes that he’s stumbled on to, he is going to have to learn a thing or two about Magic. This, of course, is in direct opposition to how he is supposed to be thinking and creates a great deal of tension in his Las Vegas precinct house.
Over the next month I will be exploring the world of Jett Hunter through a series of short stories. I will write a new short story for each character, and attempt to build a world based upon these characters. I WILL be posting these short stories here on “Dark Mind.” I would encourage any readers of this work to critique or offer up ideas that might make the stories more interesting, exciting, or by providing any information regarding the magical aspects that might make the situations presented seem more accurate or real. Additionally, if you or someone that you know has any experience working with the police or has any experience in police policy or procedure can contribute time for an interview, I’d be greatly appreciative!
I thank you all in advance, and look forward to hearing from any of my readers!
