The Multiple Choice by Monicque Sharman

After death, Amelia travels to the past where she makes choices to change things. The only problem is, they jeopardize her son's life.

The man that strangled Amelia plans to kill her son, Sam.

But how can Amelia save Sam when ghosts and the sins of her past stand in her way, and have their own agendas?

Inadvertently, Amelia changes events, the future is affected.

Amelia is left wondering: Am I alive? Who killed me? And will I catch the killer before he destroys Sam's life?

This supernatural thriller will take you on an incredible ride!

    Monicque Abby is right on all counts. Its pointless me going over old ground. Let me give you some positives. Great read and a nice flow to it. I dont like Ghosty stuff as a rule but found myself enjoying this book. Well told story with a good pace to throughout. Well done and good luck with it.

    Crazy story. I love ghost nd time travel stories -my two favorites. The writing is pretty good and there is constant action. The chapters are a good length, some may be a little short for a book. But I think editing is needed. In the first chapter it is very repetitive. You keep repeating "am I dead," "who is that man" and twice you wrote, almost verbatim about forgetting what you read about to do when you die. The repetitiveness ...

    The Multiple Choice at face value seems to have a number of elements mixed together such as murder, revenge, spiritualism, travels to another world etc but it all works very nicely. There are many books out there with this kind of theme but you have managed to put a unique twist on things by giving Amelia a chance to change things after she has died. The beginning is very strong and we are sucked straight away into the terror that ...

    Monicque, I know you've classified The Multiple Choice as Thriller, Horror, and Sci-Fi, but dying and going to the '80s is a great comic idea. Opening with the protagonist reporting on her own death is genius -- how could the reader not keep turning the pages? Amelia's experience of the afterlife is also imaginative, in that it doesn't feel that much different from life, at least at first. The opportunity to change things is appealing and relatable -- who hasn't ...

    I really enjoyed your take on the afterlife. This didn't leave much of a chance to breathe. I did find it strange at first to have this much action in such a short time but this seems like the style now a days. I'm more use to leisurely openings but I'm old.

    I'll read some more and let you know what I think.

    Hi, Monique. Here's some thoughts I had as I read the first half dozen chapters.. Chapter 1 - I admit my heart sank a little when I started reading - the idea of starting a book with a death is a little cliche - but that's one heck of an introduction. Taut prose, very well written (I could quible about a couple of word choices, no more) ... it left me fully engaged in the story and eager to read ...

    Deserves another shot from me as this is strong writing and enjoyable. I have rewritten much of mine, reposted and slipped right down! Hope you can reciprocate.

    Fantastic introduction and a fascinating account of 'death', Monicque. The character's situation generates a vast amount of instantaneous sympathy as it touches a fear we can all empathise with - the fear of intrusion into our homes. Very powerful, emotive and, actually, fast-paced writing, from what I have read so far.

    Congratulations. And I particularly enjoyed your author's bio - informative AND entertaining!

    Good pitch and very readable first chapter that hooks and makes the reader just want to see what happens. That's the sign of a good story. Best of luck with it. Ian

    hullo Monicque. An interesting concept of demise and the follow-up. at least there shouldn't be anyone to tell you that it will not occur in the way that you describe. I haven't been able to read it all yet but I am working on it and moving yours toward the major shelf. Yours is starred too so don't forget mine! LLL

    Monicque Nope, I have no idea how it will end - and I don't think you do either. But aren't you having fun?Just like your readers! The originality here is brilliant. It is so intense, and so full of sudden twists and short, swift switches that you maybe ought to keep your eye on 75 - 80,000. It is roller-coaster stuff and any more could leave your reader tipping into feeling it is all too much. The early chapters - ...

    There are a few things I would change in the dialogue and her inner monologue but I'm not going to say what they are. It's just personal to me. I'm mindful that it's someone elses work and I don't want to influence it in any way. It's an absolutely fantastic piece of writing and I will definitely read more when it is posted - hopefully you'll upload the remainder when it is finished. It is very pacy and you have ...

    Monicque Your intriguing and powerful first chapter, together with a lively writing style, immediately captured my interest, pulled me in and kept me reading. I've read six chapters and my interest has not flagged once. I am putting it on my W/L pending space becoming available on my shelf. Nitpicks: " I couldn't remember what religion ..." is repeated in chapter 1. Amelia has already bought herself a drink in chapter 2 but seems to have forgotten it in chapter ...

    I really like this story. It's very interesting, and pulls the reader right in! The details aren't too much for this type of story, and it goes along like a dream. Very well done, I'm impressed. Unfortunately due to house rules, I won't be able to continue because of language, but perhaps in the future! I sincerely hope you get published! God bless!
    I look forward to any comments on Alexis you might have. Have a great day.

    Hi again Monicque, After having you on my shelf for about 3 weeks, I'm finally here to leave a comment. So sorry for the delay, but I've been stupidly busy lately and just haven't been able to get on authonomy. :( I'll comment as I read since I find that the easiest way to keep track. OK I guess I better get started . :) Chapter 1: Good start. You've got my attention right from the 1st sentence. Chilling scene ...

    Like others here, this is not something I would usually read, but I found myself strangely hooked. However - and this may be because I also write screenplays - I felt that this would make an excellent film - more so, in my opinion, than a book. Could really feel your characters, not an easy thing to do, so well done.

    Monicque, Interesting premise but after the second time of 'jumping' into another period of time it becomes like Quantum Leap. Maybe as a very short story or an essay this could work but to expand and keep leaping doesn't hold the readers attention. Some of the situations are quite amusing but they are relatively normal and most people would encounter them in one form or another. Sorry but i think this could be so much better. The style and the ...

    This book is creepy, but awesome. I was completely into it and had to force my eyes away. I will definitely be reading more and sad to say, there's nothing I can contribute to make it better. It's great! Good job!
