Solstice Publishing has released SHARKANO, a young adult horror/adventure novel by T.A. Bound. This is T.A. Bound’s debut novel intended for young adult readers.
Initially conceived and written as a screenwriting exercise three years ago, the author put it aside and nearly forgot about it. During the earliest days of lockdown in the spring of 2020, faced with an interruption of his legal work, with courts in Georgia suddenly shut down to the Coronavirus pandemic, provided the author with an unique opportunity. Presented with this unexpected free time, T.A. Bound used it to transform the screenplay into novel form.
SHARKANO is a horror/adventure novel telling the story of a teenage girl, Lexi, who spends the summer with her father, a volcanologist studying a long-dormant volcano in Hawaii. A series of disappearances on the volcano cause turmoil panic, but Lexi knows what happened. She witnessed the whole thing. Despite doubt and ridicule, she stands by her story in the face of universal skepticism. While struggling against inexplicable and horrifying nature, Lexi discovers much about herself as she struggles to overcome her own doubt and loneliness.
Solstice Publishing released SHARKANO on November 2, 2020. It is available to purchase in paperback and eBook formats from Amazon and SolsticeEmpire.com, and is also featured on Kindle Unlimited.
After graduating from Furman University in Greenville, SC and the University of South Carolina School of Law, T.A. Bound relocated to Marietta, GA, where he lives with his wife, Tanya, and their rescued dog, Max, and also practices law.
