Development Pitch

This crime story is very unique and it has a lot of intensity to its pages. The book has pictures within a few of the chapters to help give readers a better visual experience to some of the concepts offered in the book. The story takes place in a small fishing town in Maine called Riverside. This tale is a cat-and-mouse type of crime thriller that shows concepts of a crazed criminal feuding with a group of mischievous kids in a small neighborhood. It is also a story about a bully who plays by his own rules; despite the law. This street wise tale offers hidden messages on how to deal with some of these problematic situations that these local kids get themselves into. These hidden messages are what make the book so interesting and unique. As an author, I feel that a story like A Stalker's Journey is one of a kind, and that it has a purpose to it. Fans of crime fiction should enjoy this novel. Dive into the pages and find out how a rivalry comes about over the years between a criminal monster named Curtis Ware and a local newspaper boy named Ace Gordon.
