After a hiatus from writing due to a) the Coronavirus b) my father and dog passing away the same week, and c) working on my freelancing business, I’m happy to report that I’m inspired again.
The self-publishing process for my poetry anthology, Children & Taboos, was a doozy, but I’m ready to get back on my writing horse. However, I’ll be diving into the supernatural/thriller genre this time around.
A tale of death and acceptance with a dash of insanity
A grocery store horror story
Meet Katy Garza, your typical post-highschool Latinx teenager. She works at a grocery store as a bagger so she can save for college, takes free mental health advice from the internet, and endures the ridicule of her manager and customers, but overall she can’t complain.
That is until the Voices become too much to handle. Each Voice is tied to a feeling she can’t seem to contain, and they’re ready to come out and play. When they start to impact the world around her, she begins to suspect the Voices may be more real than they appear. After a series of brushes with Death himself, suddenly racist shoppers and too-high tuition seem less critical.
Join Katy as she discovers what it means to be alive (while trying to avoid kicking the bucket), learns to let go of the past, and how the only place to go when you hit rock bottom is up.
I anticipate that the end result will look vastly different from what I post here, so you may see small errors from time to time (feel free to point them out).
