I prefer reading books which challenge me and provide interesting, unusual and unpredictable plots. My favorite genre is suspense/thriller.

2014 Update on the Sequel to Desperate Pursuit in Venice

Desperate Pursuit in Venice (#1) - Karynne Summars

In 2013 I published my first novel and joined a large author community, i.e. the World Literary Cafe and MARSocial as well as BookLikes. I never thought that fellow authors would support each other that much, so I was more than pleasantly surprised.  

While busy writing the sequel to Desperate Pursuit in Venice, I met the independent filmmaker KeeranVaani Creations and joined them as Executive Producer for the movie DiSTurBeD, a psychological thriller/mystery horror movie. While this was not on my plan for 2013, their passion and commitment convinced me to do so and has since widened my horizon for 2014. 

Update for Sequel to Desperate Pursuit in Venice (DPIV) 

Work in Progress: 36,700 words written so far. More emotional twists and turns for Luca, Kataryna, Roberto, Carlotta and Francesco. I have also introduced new interesting characters in the sequel. I know that I am a little behind because I had planned to publish the sequel around year-end but I have a good excuse- DiSTurBeD Movie. 
Have a look: www.disturbedmovie.com

However, this gives you, the readers, some more time to finish or start reading DPIV.
Meanwhile here is an excerpt from Chapter Six of Desperate Pursuit in Venice for those who haven't read it yet. FYI: It has some adult content. This excerpt was published via MARSocial in connection with their Author of the Year Competition which I entered last year.http://marsocial.com/docs/desperate-p...

I wish you all the best, personally and professionally for 2014 and beyond.
