Heard from the publisher today….

September 3, 2009

They like it! No deal yet, but conversations certainly happening.

In case you have just joined the party, I have written a novel called “The Bone Conjurors”. This is what it’s about (taken from my agent query letter):

“I don’t know if I believe in God anymore.”

 Aidan Schaeffer is a young assistant pastor whose job causes him to doubt God’s existence. When Amanda, his ex-fiancée, is murdered under mysterious circumstances, his doubt becomes a full-blown crisis of faith.

 Aidan becomes plagued by supernatural occurrences that lead him to an unsettling suspicion about the identity of his ex-fiancée’s murderer. He drawn into the events around Amanda’s death through his attraction to a woman detective and an odd group of paranormal investigators led by a mysterious priest. Even more unsettling, Aidan becomes personally and dangerously involved in the ancient battle between good and evil through the struggle for his own sense of belief.

 The Bone Conjuror’s is a supernatural thriller set in Columbus, Ohio appealing to fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

    This sounds like good film material….except just really add about 20x the crazy supernatural stuff and make it scary. 🙂 I LOOOOOVVVVEEEEEE a good supernatural horror flick. Any corpses doing spider walks?? Zombies?? Crazy poltergeist babies??

    Probably no chance for me to play the part of the mysterious priest in the film version, but good luck anyway. I hope this works out well for you.

    Let us hope it has a more satisfying ending than most Steven King horror novels.

    I hope you intend to do the in thing and leave the supernatural element ambiguous and open to interpretation. So that both atheists and religious alike can claim understanding.

    Unless it’s already completely written in which case, ignore me.

    Thanks everyone. No, no zombies or babies, MCP. However there are creepy footprints in the snow, scratched baby, and demon civil war soldiers.

    Pip pip, old bean! That’s great news. The only thing that’s missing is a debonair philosophy professor with a penchant for C. S. Lewis.

    What if a young assistant pastor whose job caused him to doubt god’s existence proceeded through life and saw no evidence whatever of anything supernatural occurring? (Besides making for the world’s most boring novel, that is.)
    I’m just thinking you might have stacked the deck a little there. 🙂

    So are you gonna read the audio book version? 😀

    Maybe! 🙂

    Well, Adam, as it’s a supernatural thriller, it would be very boring if nothing supernatural showed up, yes?

    Speaking of supernatural thrillers, I just finished Charles Willliams’ Many Dimensions. Thrilled I was. Much more suspenseful & plot-driven than the other Williams books.

    Can’t wait to read yours.

    Um, not to be nit-picky here, but does it strike you as counterproductive to be a pastor who causes a publisher to doubt his faith in God? Seems a bit like talking yourself out of a job to me.
