Targeted Audience: Romance Suspense Paranormal

Author Bio:
I’m a storyteller. A good story, well told, is the challenge laid by Robert McKee. That is my task.

Only once the characters are discovered and inhabited mentally and emotionally can the plotting begin.

The plot hangs upon the subtext created by the characters, by their motivations, by their actions and reactions. That creates suspense – the heart of story.

My characters are not merely characterization writ large. They have contradictions that I exploit with dilemmas. So expect drama, including a bit of melodrama. But I like multilevel conflicts and a touch of irony. Think simple and fun, yet complex.

Blood Web by Gary Starta @scifiauthorGary

411BTnT7vBL__SS500
Deep within a Colorado cave, a teen drifter discovers an arrowhead shaped crystal harboring an evil sentience. Acting as the crystal?s host, the boy is endowed with psychic powers and extreme rage. He embarks on a cross country mission, eager to exact revenge for crimes committed more than a century ago; able to track his intended victims through a biological conduit.

Caitlin Diggs became the FBI?s top agent by being brazen and unconventional, but her experience and training had not prepared her for this new enemy, a murderous teenager whose twisted union with a crystal has spawned a biological internet threatening all of humanity.

A trail of bodies leads Agent Diggs to a terrible conclusion; to halt the murders, she must take control of the crystal herself. But Diggs is not herself. Plagued by nightmares of her partner and lover?s murder, she has revenge issues of her own. Can she come to terms with her vengeful lust and stop the killer? Or will she be lured into the crystal?s blood web?

Targeted Audience: 18 plus

Author Bio:
Gary Starta is a former journalist who studied English and Journalism at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

His love for science fiction compelled him to write his first novel ‘ What Are You Made Of? ‘ published in 2006. Inspired by Isaac Asimov, the science fiction novel focuses on intelligent artificial life and whether sentient androids should possess the same rights as humans. The androids in Starta’s novel are created as hybrids – part machine, part human – further blurring the line between human and machine. Starta foresees a near future where humans will be forced to decide if intelligent machinery is indeed a life form. Possibly, in this near future, some humans will possess computer enhancements to overcome disabilities becoming hybrids themselves. The line between biological life form and mechanical life form will continue to be examined in a follow up novel now being written.

Starta cites Stephen King and Dean Koontz as inspirations for his 2007 novel ‘ Blood Web ‘ which is also reminiscent of the The X-files television/movie series. Contemporary authors Laurell K. Hamilton, Rachel Caine, Jim Butcher and Kelly Armstrong also fuel his aspiration to create paranormal suspense. The follow up novel to ‘ Blood Web ‘ – ‘ Extreme Liquidation ‘ explores Caitlin Diggs’ supernatural gifts including the ability to see the future in dreams and to read a person’s character through emotions. Updates on the publication date for ‘ Extreme Liquidation ‘ will follow.

Starta’s crime novella ‘ Murder By Association’ blends mystery with forensic investigation. It is a departure from previous books because it contains no science fiction or paranormal elements. Additionally, Starta foresees his 2008 novella ‘ Alzabreah’s Garden ‘ – a fantasy romance – as another out-of-the-box effort.
