Water Hazard

Water Hazard is a Young Adult, Paranormal work of fiction.  I started and finished it as part of NaNoWriMo in November 2010.  From the beginning it was intended to be the first book in a three book series, but we'll see how that goes.  I finished the first run-through (zero draft) on November 27, 2010 with 64,000 words (by Open Office's count).  I'm currently working on continuing the story before going back with my first pass with the internal editor turned back on.

It's the story of Cal and his friends Oscar and Angel, three high school kids in Aberdeen who witness the kidnapping of a local reporter.  When the reporter winds up dead, a supposed suicide, they are drawn into a mystery that unfolds in bizarre directions.  They come across menacing FBI agents with strange and frightening powers and a terrifying creature living in the lake of the local country club.  Cal and his friends find themselves turning to the local comic book store owner and his D&D friends for help and advice on how to put a stop to the madness and restore sanity to the town.

This zero draft is broken up by the days in which I wrote it:
