My New Book Launches (Download For Free)

The Runaway Train ebook

Actually, it was published as a short story back in 2014. The truth is that I planned on releasing a sequel picking up directly after the events of the original. Instead, I’ve decided to expand the short story into a single novel. The original piece is still mostly intact, but has been reworked and edited.
If this is the first time you are reading about Kathryn Lincoln or Selena Marrenger, then I hope you will enjoy the new tale. If you’ve read the original story already, there’s a lot more here to sink your teeth into. The journey has been long, but in the end, I feel it’s become a more satisfying read.
Those of you who have downloaded the previous version of the book on Amazon Kindle will have to download the new version directly from this site.  For some reason, Amazon will not push updated files to Kindle readers, even though the tale has undergone a major transformation in length.  Don’t worry, though.  I’ve got you covered with a direct download link from google.

 

The Runaway Train

What happened to Vanessa Finch?

The only thing Detective Kathryn Lincoln has to go on is a name. When another child vanishes into the creeping fog around a bus station, Kathryn and her partner, Selena Marrenger, embark on a mission to find the truth behind the disappearances. What they uncover is a hidden secret far more sinister than they could have imagined.

As suspects begin to pile up, Selena is forced to leave the case for the FBI. Alone, and desperate for answers, can Kathryn find who’s responsible before it’s too late?

— Readers’ Favorite
“M.W. Griffith takes things to the next level in The Cold, Bending Light.”

– Kindle Customer
“Griffith again grips the reader around the throat and pulls them straight down into the story. From the first page to the last. He has a great sense of character. You start to see and know the characters and each is imperfect in its own way, making the story all the more real.”

Stories Welcome

Let’s talk for a second, you and I. Come on, pull up a chair. Comfortable? Great.
I recently asked one of my colleagues what his new book was about. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get an idea of what the story was about. The only thing he could tell me was that his character is amazing, and that’s it. Is it possible to write an entire novel based off of this concept?
That got me thinking: what is it that’s driving your story? Is it character? Plot? Maybe it’s a bit of both. thoughtTBS loves to announce that ‘characters are welcome,’ but are they enough to carry a story by themselves? The world doesn’t revolve around a character. He/she has to be doing something, or is in some way affected by the people or events in his/her life. That’s where the story emerges. Sure, Dr. House is smart, but I think he might fall into the category of being so smart that he’s stupid. Where he excels in his trade, he stumbles in his personal relationships. That isn’t enough to be a story, however. What he encounters and how relationships affect him can determine how he functions in the day to day, but suppose a code black is paged in the hospital and the place goes on lock down. There’s a mad man inside, and Dr. House wants to protect his patients at all costs. Maybe he attempts to outwit the assailant and saves the day. Not only is that a story, but it’s quite revealing in regards to character growth.
Maybe the slogan should be ‘stories welcome.’
Then again, maybe I think too much.

There’s nothing worse than not knowing…

ColdBendingLight_CoverFinal.indd

On a hot summer evening, a young woman’s body is discovered in a small Tennessee town.
When another girl vanishes on her way home from work, Special Agent Selena Marrenger takes on the case. All signs point to a terrifying serial killer with a unique modus operandi: a chemical used in state executions that isn’t found in Tennessee.

As Selena inches closer to the unnerving truth, she starts to believe that something much larger – and sinister – is at play. Probing local law enforcement for answers unearths a well hidden secret woven into the fabric of truth, justice, and madness…

In this fast paced novel where nothing is quite what it seems, M.W. Griffith leads readers on a dangerous, twisting quest to bring justice to families whose lives have been changed forever by tragedy.

You can grab your copy of the novel at AMAZON.  Thanks for reading!

The New Novel Is Called…
The Cold, Bending Light

The Cold, Bending Light is one of those projects that was in production for a long time. When I recently looked at the source file, the creation date was surprising. Early 2015! Although I can’t say it was being written the entire time, I can tell you it’s conception began around then.
A form was taking shape. Notes were being made. Research was being done. Eventually, a rather extensive outline came into being. After that, I began to breathe life into a story close to my heart.
The Cold, Bending Light is a novel that wasn’t easy to write, but I’m glad I did. It’s gone through the betas and editor, and all of you will be able to nab your copy very soon.
Stay tuned right here, because the next few days will bring more information about the novel, such as the official cover art from Hillhouse Graphic Design!
