Word Count Wednesday #3

Almost five weeks into Gray Haze! It has been difficult finding time to write this week because I have family over, but I have made a little progress. Gray Haze is currently 35,617 words (+13,132 words from the last update). I am in Chapter 11/50.

I am officially going to expand this story into a trilogy. I will announce the titles sometime early next year! I plan to publish Gray Haze in the fall of 2019.

Gray Haze is a paranormal/horror/fantasy set in the near future. Synopsis:

In Fog Creek, a small town in New York, the high school principal dies of a heart attack. His eldest son and daughter, MARCUS and MERCY, return home to attend his funeral and support their widowed mother and their younger, adopted brother, MALIK. The death of their father was sudden and unexpected, but clearly not out of the ordinary.

AMORA, a girl who lost both parents in a car accident when she was eighteen, left university to take care of her four younger siblings. Three years later, she still works at the same popular diner and sells her art on the side. After serving a mysterious customer at the diner, Amora begins noticing lights flickering, voices wafting through her window, and odd smells. She inadvertently catches the source of one of the voices on video: a dark creature with red eyes.

As the paranormal occurrences increase in frequency and intensity, the townspeople fear that they will spread outside Fog Creek and wreak havoc on the world. Further conflict arises when a powerful stranger appears to shed light on their unusual circumstances. Is this newcomer their invaluable ally – or their greatest enemy?
