My New WIP- Sinister Town

Exactly a year before, Deceived was only an idea in my head which kept on brewing constantly until I finally decided to get it on paper. And today here I am with Deceived getting published and another book’s first draft in hand. This sure has been one hell of a year for me.

Let me start by telling  you a little about my current WIP, which will be my second novel- Sinister Town. I have this irrational liking for the dark side of human nature and, after exploring the themes of psychopaths and sociopaths, I wanted to do something entirely different for my next book. As they say, variety is the spice of life…

The blub in my brain going pong!

I had a very basic idea last year, that I wanted to work on for my first book, but while writing the FD the entire plan changed and I ended up writing an entirely different plot. But the initial idea stuck with me. So what did I do? I left it at that to simmer on the back stove while I worked on the first book and, after a few months, I had the perfect plot in mind fot that initial idea.

Hence, I present my second novel Sinister Town.

Like last time, I’ve created a cover for this book for my vision board and also to tell my pub. (God, I love saying that!) how the book cover should be like. So here’s the cover that I designed:

Sinister Town-2

Genre: Crime & Thriller Fiction
Words (approx.): 65,000
Working blurb:

After hitting a rough patch of 3 years, Nick and Eva’s marriage is finally saved by the arrival of their first child. In order to forget all the bitterness amongst them, they want to start over their new life by picking up the pieces of their broken relationship and shifting to a small new town.
Nic is ready to make the sacrifice of leaving the luxuries of big city and his drowning career in order to take care of his family and Eva is ready to give this marriage another chance, but what they don’t know is that the Town they want to make their home is waiting for them eagerly… for all the wrong reasons.

Right now I’m working on a new draft as I have to make a lot of changes. So, basically I’m on the FD stage. And from past experience I know that the best way to write a FD is to participate in a WriMo. Fortunately, I received an email 2 days back saying that Camp NaNo is starting in April (next month.)


So, I’ve already cleared up my schedule for April as I won’t be able to take part in Camp NaNo July this year (I’ll be busy with the publishing of Deceived.) That means I’ll be busy next month like crazy and in order to save myself from added pressure, I’ll be talking a break from WOW posts for 2 months. I’ll rsume with it in May. 🙂 (Bye bye WOW! I’ll miss you 😦 )

Please feel free to voice out your thoughts on the cover and the blurb of my second novel. I’d love to know what you think about Sinister Town. If it creeps you out, I’ll consider myself a winner. 😀

Hope you guys are having a great day!

Ciao ❤

      • Oh you’re welcome! I love the cover too. The picture is actually really inviting and interesting, that’s the sinister thing about it- it’s not what it seems 😉

        • Thanks, again! I literally spent an entire day figuring out the cover and the fonts. The cover image keeps me motivated till I get the MS done 🙂
          I’m so glad you got the meaning behind the cover perfectly!

          • Aww I love hugs 🙂 and I know exactly what you mean about the cover. I have a future business idea and even though it’s seriously jumping the gun, I came up with the name and logo first thing so I knew what I was working towards!

            • Me too! 😊 Wow! That’s awesome… I wish you all the luck in the world for your business idea 🙂
              These things really go a long way in motivating us… I absolutely adore my vision boards and the best part is seeing all the things coming to life in front of me out of nowhere! Thinking about stuff really attracts them to us, or at least that’s what I believe in 😀

  1. Congratulations on getting your first book out. What an achievement and I bet you are feeling over the moon about it. A second book already in the works too. The plot sounds sinister and mysterious, sort of like there will be many twists and turns. Love the cover. You got very creative with the positioning of the title and font 🙂

    • Thanks a lot, Mabel! And yeah, I’m so over the moon right now… hehe 😀
      And thanks, I’m so glad you feel that way! I hope I’ll be able to deliver the same feels through the story as well just like the cover 🙂
      Thanks a lot for reading, Mabel. Your comments are so inspiring ❤

  2. Sounds like an interesting book. 🙂 I like the cover, and the blurb is good as well. The last line leaves me with the vision of a town that’s alive, and not nice. Which is creepy, but maybe the wrong impression? I don’t know. Either way, I wish you luck with the launch of Deceived. I can’t wait to get to that stage. 🙂


    • Thanks a lot, Phoenix! I’m so glad you like the blurb and the cover. This book is again a dark crime fiction so be rest assured, it’ll be really, really dark and creepy. And the town is, in fact, living but through its people (ritual killings and such.)
      And thanks for your wishes! I’m sure you’ll be there in no time 🙂
