Announcement and Cover Reveal of Unmade by Carol Oates

I’ve been playing around with the storyline for Unmade in one way or another since my late teen years and finally wrote an earlier and much shorter incarnation a few years ago. The more grown up, dark tale didn’t fit with what I was working on at the time. Still, I kept working on rewriting, developing, and expanding the story during breaks from other projects. Now, here it is.

Lincoln Dowling wouldn’t hurt a fly. That character trait proved deadly when a stray dog stepped into the path of his car on prom night. With all efforts to save Lincoln failing, his mother turns to the one person who might be able to save him.

A year later, Lincoln remains under the care of innovative scientist, Matthew Baker. To the outside world, his recovery is astounding. However, for Lincoln, learning to act has become a matter of survival.

Plagued by nightmares of grisly murders and convinced something has gone wrong, he struggles to convince his girlfriend that these nightmares are bleeding into reality.

As Lincoln is forced to the brink of insanity, he will have to face his worst fears to keep the monster from destroying the one he loves.
