An Excerpt From Obsessed with Her, By L.L. Colling

January 13, 2020– I was fortunate enough to have a lot of expert help on my first psychological thriller, Obsessed with Her. Because I’ve never committed any of the acts that my characters have (yet), I thought it was essential to enlist the experts, particularly at the Toronto Police Department (Homicide Division). Here is an excerpt from the book. You can order your copy at https://pandamoniumpublishing.com/product/obsessed-with-her-novel/ or on Amazon. I genuinely appreciate your support of my work and I hope that you enjoy Obsessed with Her.

He finally obeys my orders and releases the restraints. I swing my legs over the edge and let them dangle for a second while I balance. I reach for the neck brace and pain shoots through both of my arms; I let them down by my sides slowly before trying again, this time ignoring the pain. I put one foot on the pavement and then the other, all the while steadying myself with both hands on the edge of the stretcher. I slowly walk toward the house focusing on one step at a time. The pain piercing through my chest has nothing to do with my fall. A detective is standing at the door and tightens his lips when he sees me. 

What would you do if your child was missing? How far would you go to find out what happened to her? Obsessed with Her is every parent’s worst nightmare, with twists and turns so shocking, it will leave you breathless until the very last page.

Here is where you can find some reviews of the book https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37853271-obsessed-with-her?from_search=true&qid=SW6nnL5QEV&rank=2

All About Fiction Genres!

May 30, 2018- Let’s talk about fiction genre descriptions; there are a number of fiction genres, so I am going to take a couple of minutes to describe a few of  them pretty briefly.

Action/Adventure: Action is key, there’s a quest, jungles, deserts, and mountain ranges make ideal settings. Usually geared towards a male audience.

Historical Fiction: A story that is fiction set in a real time in history. Involves political/social events of the time.

Mystery: Everything gets explained at the END of the story. A modern mystery contains a character’s struggle, psychological obstacles, and motivation.

Psych Thriller: A story that explores the “WHY” something happened. This genre focuses on character’s motivations, feelings, and mental activities. This genre also creates feelings of excitement or suspense. Psych Thrillers are usually based on illegal activities, sex, and violence. It’s a kill or be killed type of situation for the characters involved.

Glitz: Usually feature wealthy characters who are high profile career persons,and are set in exotic/metropolitan locations, e.g. NYC, Hollywood, etc.

Erotica: Graphic descriptions of character’s sex lives.

RomCom: Romantic comedies are usually in the author’s voice or the voice of the main character. Comedy is intertwined and the main character has a love interest that may cause them hilarious problems. At the end, they live happily ever after.

Of course, there are so many more genres and sub-genres, when it comes to fiction, that I couldn’t possibly cover them all in one post! Which genre are you currently reading/writing? Sound off in the comments below.
