I have polished my first debut novel as a senior at university, and I have sent about thirty to fifty query letters to mostly literary agents in New York, and some in my home state in Florida. I originally wrote this idea as a screenplay before I realized that Hollywood doesn't make original movies for films anymore. There are all based off successful novels. My book is speculative fiction, and if you read or heard of John Milton's Paradise Lost then you'll certainly know where I'm writing about. It is a sort of modern version that has always existed in my imagination before I knew John Milton existed.
This book is about a tramp, deadbeat father facing the death of his two children as he cons his way into the corridors of finance turning himself into a smooth-talking banker left for death after a series of unfortunate events leads to the Stock Market Crash of 1929. As he mistakenly enters Heaven on the brink of collapse, he finds that a devilish prodigy has kidnapped his daughter as he searches for her in this cosmic paradise. While confronting his son’s rebellion joining a band of renegade angels into terrorism in this resilient tale of faith, and fatherhood.
