This novella was inspired by a phenomenon that kept happening to me shortly after my father died unexpectedly on an operating room table. I kept spotting him everywhere: In the car driving beside me on the highway, in the stands of a hockey stadium and even across the tracks at a train station. I knew it was my imagination -- but, I speculated -- what if it wasn't in my head? What if it actually was him? What if he was still alive, unbeknownst to all his loved ones?
The concept wouldn't leave - but it kept becoming more than a short story but not quite a full length novel, so I kept putting it aside until November 2013 when, committing to write 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), I wrote down the ideas that had been swirling inside my mind.
And the result is a Die-Hard styled quick paced thriller.
I've launched this first via Wattpad and have rolled it out for sale via different eRetailer platforms.
The eBook is already up at Kobo. (http://store.kobobooks.com/en-CA/ebook/evasion), as well as at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Evasion-Mark-Leslie-ebook/dp/B00L8CWDDQ)
There is a trade paperback print version available as well: http://www.amazon.com/Evasion-Mark-Leslie/dp/0973568852/
Of course, here on Wattpad, you can enjoy the story entirely for free. If you like it, I would love if you could leave a review on your favourite place to leave reviews (Amazon, Goodreads, etc). Every single review really does make a difference for an author. Thanks!
