The Stalking

If I were to write a novel, I hope it would have an introduction similar to this:

Andrea Dietrich's newest and riveting psychological thriller “The Stalking” delves into the psyche of a character whose shy and unassuming nature masks a contrasting deep and unstoppable passion.  Jason Mueller is the man smitten by the attractive but aloof Amber Menendez, whom he spies one day at the local gym. From that fateful day, his life and hers will be intertwined in a plot so twisted that not until its climax will the reader begin to fathom what the resolution could possibly be!

Emulating her favorite authors of the horror story genre (Stephen King, Peter Straub, and Dean Koontz), Ms. Dietrich swirls lines of delicious suspense throughout this absorbing tale of self-conflict, deception, and intrigue. You will be mesmerized until the final page's shocking revelation!

    Great words here. Very persuasive! I would read this book if it were written. ~ In regards to my footles, yes they are for Heather's contest, but is says "at least four", unless I am mistaken. If you happen to know positively that four is the limit, I would like to know that, otherwise I shall leave them as they are. Thanks for thinking of me!

Can you make Ms Menendez very beautiful and sexy please, and put her picture on the front cover, that will save you a lot of writing lol. Think you can imagine what I'm like in a book store now. Excellent intro Andrea. good luck with this. Take care, Richard
