A narrator always gets to know the reader before spilling their deepest secret.
I am a murderer.
She was just a silly nothing of a girl until I made her rise to fame. A pennything.
So, reader: sit down, cozy up. I’d offer a cup of tea, but you may worry it’s poisoned, and you may be correct.
But I can’t just tell you how she died. That’s too easy. Too quick. Buckle up: you’re in for a villainous monologue.
Would you read it? Would you buy it? Or would you set it back on the shelf? I’ll be sending the final wording to a cover designer soon, so I’d love your thoughts.
If you’d like to continue reading, fyi: patrons will be getting an excerpt of the book posted this week! Plus, the first 20 patrons are receiving a printed Cast of Characters in the mail. Sign up as a patron for that and more goodies in the future!
