Hi all! Been a long time but now I'm back at the grind. Shooting for #DVpit on October 6th, so I have one month to make everything shine! As always, I thank you so much for any help, and I promise to reciprocate as soon as I possibly can. Trust me, I will. If you ever want to reach out (as I love making new writing friends) just shoot me a message.
New York City, Cameron's life-long dream, now holds a horrific memory. Moving to LA meant a fresh start, and now he's responsible for the deaths of fifty people.
Cameron, aspiring thriller writer, was the perfect Manhattan assistant until he realized what lurks beneath his boss's polished complexion. Cameron fearfully moves to LA, where he’s immediately hired by William Thaxton, a man he knows nothing about. Overcome with excitement, Cameron hastily submits documents on a tablet, detonating a bomb murdering fifty people. Thaxton gleams, “Welcome to your own thriller, my little writer.”
Handcuffed and dragged across LA, Cameron inadvertently causes death with each stop until Thaxton arrives at a house of unspeakable horror. Beyond terrified screams and bloodied mattresses, Cameron befriends a sexual assault victim who reluctantly assists in seeking escape. However, after successfully phoning the police, they quickly discover the sickening truth beneath Thaxton and his human trafficking scheme - and, for Cameron, how deep regretful, past mistakes can grow.
At ___ words, Coastal is a multi-POV crime thriller with series potential. Over the last year I have worked in both NY and LA, granting me the realistic experience to craft this story.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Respectfully, Christopher Woolf
