Masquerading As Novel ~ Can Author?s Work Convey Important Perceptions?

While novels do not usually attempt to convey concepts about the need to protect ourselves, this one does. For Sale By Owners:FSBO. As the author, I have been told that I have broken all of the rules. Crime, Police corruption, Sexual abuse, and Scams are exposed. The Trucking, Real Estate, and even Street~Prostitution industries are laid bare.

This story is dedicated to all those who did not recognize the dangers which lurked behind the friendly faces of evil.

When questioned about my reasoning for choosing this layout, I've repeatedly said, "I selected the novel format because it allowed the freedom to develop hypothetical scenarios, involving fictional characters, while forcing awareness of real dangers. I wanted to make a compelling case for right choices, not just in marketing ones home, but in all aspects of life."

Perhaps it was due in part to some good advice I received when I was attempting to decide what to write. A book I read said that an author should choose a subject that he or she knows something about. Wow, that made sense. For someone who had been involved in several industries, had spent much of his life cleaning up mistakes made on personal levels, and feeling a need to convey ideas to people that might dissuade them from similar dangerous avenues, a novel would be more flexible than a self-help guide of some sort. Especially considering that often those who are most at risk, don't have any idea that they are.

So how did I do it? Well, as an avid reader, I asked myself, "What type of novels do I enjoy reading?" Space does not permit listing all of the authors I enjoy. But John Grisham, Sidney Sheldon, Danielle Steel, Mary Higgins Clark, and Dean Koontz are at the top of my personal list. Steven King scares me real well.

Realizing that if I worked real hard, and maybe I live to be the age of Methuselah ~ if I hoped I might develop my own craft to one of their levels ~ I had better get busy. Even if the end result were a mediocre novel, it would be a fun thing to complete. Yet more importantly, perhaps I could reach some people who might not otherwise recognize the dangers that they place themselves in.

Poetry in a novel? Yup,~ in the form of a dozen songs ~ it is an intriguing aspect of, what has been called "This unique literary work."

Mind illusions and abhorrent actions of a Serial Rapist add an eerie element that are in contrast to those actions of a male truck driver and a female real estate agent who become romantically involved.

The best rewards I have received ~ to date ~ are unsolicited e-mails and requests for permission to be linked to other's websites. From a real estate broker with MS who ordered a copy from Amazon.com: Hi Russ,

I've just finished, in your words, "a very good read".

The name of the book is "FSBO" which I enjoyed thoroughly.

You covered it all, bureaucracy, politics, sex, crime and day-to-day real estate activity.

You have a talent that MS can't touch.

Even though I have a master's in journalism and communications, and have read a lot, I think you could teach many published writers a thing or two about story telling.

I hope to hear more from you. Keep up the good work.

Very Best Regards!

Frank

Shadowy worlds surrounding the moving business, government housing, drugs, prostitution, real estate, organized crime, and the trucking industry are illuminated. Can a na?ve pregnant waitress, the young deputy, women abused, or an uneducated thief, fight the foes of darkness to learn the lessons of life? All, so involved in their own twisted lives, must make right choices or suffer the consequences.

To others of you talented Ezine Article Authors who have a desire to test the unchartered book~waters, I would have to say, "Come on in! ~ The water is fine."
