This is, I think, the more or less final pitch for the werewolf novel. And it will go to agents. Honest. Really, I promise. (Heart thuds. Deep breath. Submitaphobia rears its ugly head.) I just wanted to pass it by y’all and see if there are any really glaring errors or omissions or points of confusion. And thank you so much to the people who contributed — I know some of you will recognize your wording here and there.
After the death of her husband, Kaari Goldstein thinks coming to Seattle to help her alcoholic friend Alice dry out sounds like a good idea. But on her first morning, she wakes up in a park, with no idea how she got there or where her clothes went. She also can’t explain the eviscerated drug dealer nearby.
While she fights to save Alice from addiction, Kaari tries to discover what really happened that night. Does it have anything to do with her newfound ability to track people by scent? Or with being a hardcore vegetarian who has started to crave meat in the worst way? Or with the rumors of a killer wolf on the loose?
Kaari wanted to start a new life, but she never imagined it would involve dodging werewolf assassins, tracking serial killers, and occasionally turning into a wolf herself. As she struggles to master her inner wolf, Kaari has to convince the cops that she isn’t the killer they’re looking for. But what kind of killer is she?
