Dark Paradise

A tropical paradise plagued by power outages.

A serial killer strikes when the lights go out.

An American cop too proud to admit he is afraid of the dark.


Raised in an orphanage, Mike Archer often found himself locked in a dark closet. Thirty years later he chased a drug lord into a dark alley and barely survived a bloody ambush. One year and four gunshot wounds later, he is hired by a friend to stop β€œEl Diablo,” (the Devil) a serial killer responsible for the deaths of nine teens. Can Archer venture into the darkness?

To stop the devil, Michael Archer must overcome the demons within himself.

  1. And then it stopped when you want to keep on reading.
    I get the literary agent ready. but even failures and not so good written post show growth something to also be proud of as a writer. Shame those agents don’t easily except that fact.

    1. Thanks for reading. Happy you enjoyed it. It is an unpublished manuscript that I hope to eventually sell. It is handwritten and needs to be transferred to my computer. Thanks for commenting, I hope to find someone to represent my unpublished books.

  3. You’ve mentioned this post in passing. When you asked is how we find the inspiration to write … You also spoke about how you wrote one post where you came out sweaty because you wrote the entire post in a cupboard/ closet πŸ˜„

    Once again, thanks for sharing. I’m really enjoying these scripts you’re showing us and I’ll be able to say I read about that screenplay or scrip before it was written.

  4. This is a perfect book blurb. Is that what you intended? Because it’s great! Just enough info to make you want more! Tres bien, mon ami! (Can you tell I’m trying to learn a little French? I’m practicing on you!)

    1. First, thanks. This week I’m tinkering with my blog to make it literary agent friendly. Never know when one may stumble here. So, your words provided much needed encouragement. Unfortunately, Lonely Author doesn’t parlez-vous franΓ§ais. But I am pretty good at reading body language, the back of cereal boxes, and I once won a limbo contest. Please feel free to practice on me. My wife is practicing her cooking and I have survived that. lol Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. Your comforting message makes this difficult journey to find representation a little easier. Thanks so much.
