Queries for Agents:
Stained Mirror, A Memoir by a Serial Killer:
I’m introducing a 91,000 word macabre, psychological horror novel, blended with crime drama, told in first-person. Stained Mirror, A Memoir by a Serial Killer exhales a fresh breath into the serial killer trope.
April 2016: A late night rendezvous at a bar doesn’t go as planned, awakening the voices that had been quelled for years. Follow Frank Stark, a rough-and-tumble, bisexual Sergeant working for the RPD in Upstate New York, as he teeters the tightrope of cop and killer. He seeks acceptance from his psychiatrist, coworkers, and most of all, himself, but none are offering. Adamant falling in love is the cure for all his afflictions, the screaming voices fraying his sanity have other plans. Follow the macabre journey as he seeks redemption, even escaping to Florida.
Such is Life:
2020 has been trying. One never knows when times like these arrive, which reflects the themes in Such is Life. This fiction novel, loosely autobiographical with 77,000 words, is a multicultural, multi-ethnic immigrant story about relationships told in 1st person..
Love, hope, redemption, & deceit intersect in Such is Life. iLifeCheck has given Nicola (Nico) Romano two days to live.
His failing heart is damaged for more than one reason. He creates a familial bucket list. Poor without a car, the Italian immigrant walks the streets of the Rishon borough in New Amsterdam, NY visiting family and friends as well as making amends with those who have hurt him. He’s stifled by their lifelong secrets, including a son, but preservers with advice from strangers along the avenues. Follow his emotional journey for redemption and closure.
Gianni Franco, real name Gianni Petitti, was born and raised in Rochester, NY. He has a double major; Bachelor’s in English Literature and Biology; also a Master’s in Healthcare Administration. Pursuing a Doctorate wasn’t in his monetary cards. He wrote for a local newspaper, the Democrat and Chronicle, then The Rochester Magazine, and The American Register. He writes poetry, micro fiction, and short stories. Recently, he finished two complete novels; Stained Mirror, A Memoir by a Serial Killer, a macabre psychological thriller, and Such is Life, a contemporary, multicultural hope and redemption story.
