At the time of my writing this, I'm nearly 10,000 words into my first novel. I realize this is a lot to sit through, but please, please give the entire thing a read and leave your thoughts. I'm on the fence about continuing this project and your honest input might be the deciding factor.

Benjamin Lowe is a self-destructive, substance-abusing shell of a man, doing mandatory time at Green Oaks Psychiatric following a spectacularly botched suicide attempt. Sick of the forced empathy of mental health institutions and professionals, Benjamin escapes with the help of Abelle, a mysterious new patient with a secret. In the real world once again, our manically depressed hero finds himself entangled and absorbed into a cult-like group of young adults living together in "The Estate," each of them with super-human abilities that can only be sustained through mass murder. Under the patriarchal rule of their enigmatic leader, Mathys, this entire Estate goes on a devastating killing spree--and Ben, finding family for the first time, falls in so deep, there's no way out.

This is the first (extremely rough) 10,000 words. I'd love to continue, and have the plot completely outlined with all its twists and turns, but find myself completely frozen with insecurity over what's already done. I'd love some feedback. Read Chapter
