Chilly days, hot cider, family and…serial killers! Unforgivable, a Psychological Romantic Thriller by Tina Wainscott
UNFORGIVABLE is a book of my heart, flowing right through me and onto my screen. It contains twists and turns and characters who aren’t quite what they seem. More importantly to me, the characters grow and transform…though some in not exactly good ways.
Here’s a quick blurb: When an old friend returns to Katie's small Georgia town, somehow knowing her deepest secrets, his ominous premonition drives her to dig into dark truths that lead to a killer…who has her in his sights.
Speaking of UNFORGIVABLE, I undertook a big challenge in this last year—turning the novel into a screenplay! So many readers have told me, “You should make this into a movie!” As if I had the power to do that, ha-ha-ha. Most authors dream of seeing their creations on any kind of screen, even knowing that it will be dramatically changed from the book. And now I see why.
Fitting a 400 page book into 120 very sparse pages that scripts are comprised of is mind-blowing. Anything that makes the script go longer than that or doesn’t translate to the very visual media has to go. Really, you have to be brutal with editing! But I’ve gone through the many edits and learned the process and now it’s in a few people’s hands who will hopefully see the vision and want to produce it. My fingers are crossed! These things can take years, so I shall focus on other things as I wait for good news. It’s fortunate that I set it in rural Georgia, which is very film-maker friendly.
In this world of ups and downs, we can sure use good news and uplifting stories of triumph and happily-ever-afters. I wish you all of those for the holidays and the coming year!
