KILL the PRESIDENT is a dark, raw, and uncensored page-turner chronicling the growth of a psychopathic killer from his first shocking, childhood mutilation. Charlie, his best friend in grammar school, and Jamie Carver, the first girl he ever loved, snuff out the spring of Teddy's life just as sure as if they plunged a knife into his heart.

An autobiographic diary of the evolution of Ted's psychopathic maturation, KILL the PRESIDENT presents the chilling and often grisly insight into the murky recesses of a tormented and troubled mind.

The last person anyone would suspect, Ted progresses through life as a model citizen, raises a family, and flourishes in business, political, and social circles. When his sordid past and considerable pernicious talents are discovered by a secret right-wing organization, Ted is blackmailed and presented with two choices: KILL the PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES or be publicly exposed for the atrocities he has committed. Unwillingly, he agrees to the assassination.


She said, “I have committed torture, murder, and worse”. “What could be worse than torture and murder”? the Devil asked. “Betrayal”, she replied.

Looks a professional read and well-structured for a story. It is also an inviting story and can capture attention and interest.
There is one problem though, and only the rest of the world will see it, but not those from the U.S
You see, we are now in a changed phase of writing and reading books. It will not only be your family, friends, the place you live in, or your country who can get first to the book. Right now writers mostly use the new generation platforms to showcase their work, like in this case, Booksie. These platforms have readers and audiences from all over the world. So it can be advantageous to writers to write themes, descriptions and styles that have some relation to the topography of the world where audiences from all over can be able to relate to.
But just in your case, the entire writing seems channeled to a specific audience (if that is the case then it is totally okay and I respect it) You have used massive amount of descriptions and styles that someone from outside the U.S wouldn't understand, and I am one of them, from a different country. What this can do is turn someone off from reading what they don't get or relate to.
But all in all, this story is well-thought and looks to be given keen editing, and those from where they will relate to will actually love it.
