Breaking Free of the Norm in Writing
Neil Ostroff
How many times a day do you get an idea for a story and then stop and think the idea is too strange, the plot so out-there, that publishers would quake in their boots if they were to buy it? If you’re a writer, how many times have the rejections said ‘not a saleable story’ to something that is not poorly written, just not mainstream enough? Well, I’m here to say, screw it! Write what you want!
My newest release, PULP is a prime example of a story too noir for most large publisher’s tastes but still packs a punch. It’s the story of Kevin Turner, a struggling newspaper columnist/ thriller writer. He just received a panicked call from his ex-girlfriend Tina, a self-proclaimed clairvoyant prostitute. One of her clients, the mayor’s married son, died in her bed and she needs Kevin’s help to dispose of the body. When Kevin arrives he discovers Tina’s psychotic brother has already chopped up the body and police are now finding pieces spread across the suburbs. His involvement sets off a chain of events more bizarre and horrifying than the plot of one of Kevin’s own novels.
If you like crazy, off-beat, gripping, noir thrillers than PULP is right up your alley. From the first sentence you’ll be brought into a world where the abnormal is the norm, and the unconventional the way of life.
Hope you enjoy PULP. Available at:
