A Novel - seeking publication

Light A Candle: Chase The Devil Away is the story of a young man who writes about monsters and then becomes one himself.

When aspiring horror author, Nick Teravelli, wins a writing competition and learns his new agent is the devil, he is propelled into a world of tabloid fame where he soon learns true horror is not in the stories he writes, but in living his own day to day hellish life.

Light A Candle: Chase The Devil Away is the title of this completed, horror/suspense novel of 120,000 words. The story contains elements of horror and suspense, and features well-developed characters in romantic and family relationships. The story line has several intertwining subplots and an unexpected twist at the end.

It would appeal to new adult, dark fantasy, suspense and horror readers.
