I am looking to break into the world of authoring novels for extra cash. I would like to be the next Stephen King, or Dean Koontz, James Patterson.. the list goes on.

I have an idea for a Best Seller and I am looking for advice from different communities throughout the United States. Here's the premise for the book. Please, let me know what you think.

Premise: Young man is sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit. Family of young man is left completely dumbfounded by the injustice of it all. Young man, while incarcerated is bullied by guards and other inmates. Family member of young man seeks revenge. Family member of young man begins to stalk the officers from the particular institution in which their relative is now being held and gains masses of information on them. S/He finds out which ones are cheating on their spouses and which ones are cheating on their taxes. Then the family member moves into phase two. The guards who are innocuous are left alone, but the information is still saved in case it is needed in the future. The guards who have caused problems or harm to the incarcerated family member face a different fate. One is found dead of an "apparent suicide". Another is pulled over for DUI and is found to have a large quantity of an illegal substance in the trunk. Two, a male and female duo are found dead, in a suspicious circumstance, both overdosed on heroine and ecstasy and in a situation that would make their respective spouses embarrassed. Another disappears on a fishing/hunting trip and is never heard from again. Then the family member starts in on the inmates who have brought harm to her relative. Of course S/He cannot get to the inmates themselves, so s/he goes after the families of those inmates. One, their mother and father are murdered in their sleep. Another, their three year old wanders a little too close to where an alligator happens to be nesting. Another one's girlfriend or wife is found in several different states, parts of her in each state.

Let me know if you think this is a book that would sell well. I am interested to get started on it. I would like to do a little more research and prep for it, but I think it will be a KILLER.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
