Paranormal Revenge – The making of Immortal Link

One evening in March 2010, I sat down to write what became Chapter 3 of “Immortal Link.” It was like an urge to get the true story of a young girl who was raped in her bedroom by one of her brothers’ friends out in the open. I only knew that it happened and that the siblings never told anyone about it. Years later, the mother found out from a counselor, who said that the act of keeping such a traumatic event secret and to take care of their younger sister was superhuman.

Once the chapter was written I started thinking about a setting. The next evening I watched a documentary about the town of Jim Thorpe, PA and its Old Jail museum. When I heard about the famous handprint in cell# 17, I took notes. Further research got me hooked on the location and its incredible history. I had my setting. Since it was only a two-hour drive away, I went to visit to see it for myself. That’s when something crazy happened: The setting took over and completely changed the direction of my novel. Trusting the spirits of the Old Jail, I followed their leads which I discovered through research and oral stories. All I had to do was to write it down. When the first draft was finished, I knew I had a story so rich and incredible that I couldn’t have done it alone.

I am sure you will be as surprised as I was while reading “Immortal Link.” Let me know what you think.

      thanks for the praise, womens fitness. Important note about Immortal Link: I wrote it for all sexual abuse victims out there. I took care of getting the best revenge for my heroine(it even reaches back generations!) so the victims/readers can focus on healing and going on with life. If Stephen King is the King of Horror, I am the Queen of Revenge. The book is available on Amazon, Kindle and Smashwords. If you have teens, please check out the FAQ and About me, about you section. I will check your site, salut!
