Since I was unable to finish the book I'm reading in time to write a review and post it to Sunday Salon, I thought I'd introduce my Sunday Saloners to my suspenseful novelette REMOTE CONTROL.
I wrote the original 2700-word short story back in 1987. Seems like a lifetime ago. The novelette is close to 10,000 words and I'm pleased to say it is far better than my original.
Ironically, a TV game show came out in '87. It was also called 'Remote Control'. I never heard about it until two decades later when I did some research. In 1988 a movie was released with the same title. I never saw that either.
There's also another movie--one that is more current and probably better known. I'm sure you'll think of the title when you read my story.
You can read REMOTE CONTROL on Textnovel.com, where it is being serialized one chapter at a time.
I can't recall what made me write the original story, but it has always been a favorite of mine. Perhaps it was inspired by that old saying...
"Be careful what you wish for."
I hope you enjoy. And you might enjoy signing up for Textnovel (free) and then you can vote by clicking on the "thumbs up" symbol. :)
