Title and description: Titanic Deception, Michael Kearney works in a Wall Street firm setting up luncheons for busy executives. He overhears a story about how the sinking of the Titanic was rigged, and he goes home to read his great-grandmother’s journal of her experience surviving the sinking. He finds her story corroborates the one the executives were telling, and he sets up a blog to share the information. He becomes a target; first for an ex-CIA agent/conspiracy theorist who wants to know more so he can prevent the next disaster, then by the powers that be who want to take him out for knowing too much. When his girlfriend is kidnapped, Michael must step up and save her as well as the intended victims in the next disaster.
Readers are transported back and forth from Michael’s story in modern day to his great-grandmother’s experience on the Titanic in this page-turning thriller.
How long have you worked on your WIP, and when do you expect to finish: Started in November 2011 (Nanowrimo) and hope to publish by April 15, 2012 for the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
