The Transition of Johnny Swift by Kerry J Donovan
Genre: Paranormal/Psychological Thriller
Before the accident …
Frank Brazier has the perfect life. A contract to drive for a Formula 1 team. A supportive family. A stunning girlfriend. On the surface, everything is great, but Frank keeps a secret. On race days, Shadow-man visits. He sits on the nose cone of Frank’s racing car, or floats above the grandstand, waving taunting, distracting, eating away at his concentration. An accident in the making.
After the accident …
Frank starts hearing voices. Strange voices. Impossible voices. He’s losing his grip on reality and Paula, his sister, is dying. Doctors say she is brain dead. They want to pull the plug, but Frank knows she’s still in there, fighting. He can hear her calls. Shadow-man finally speaks. He says Frank can save Paula, but can Frank pay the price?
It’s been a while since we’ve done an Author Central page like-fest. Don’t have an Author Central page? Oh! The humanity! Here’s how to make one. It’s free. Don’t be the last one to have one, for crying out loud.
Just put the link to your Author Central page from Amazon in the comment section below, and people will click over and give you a nice, reassuring like.
[Don’t forget, if you right-click the links, you can choose to have them open in a separate tab so you don’t have to worry about navigating back and forth to pages.]
Please submit ONE AUTHOR PAGE only.
