DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Who is ready for a reading-ride? I know I am and can't wait to share with you Stanton Polk's novel "Glimmer in the Ravine." It is filled with just the right plot twists to keep you hanging on without numbing the senses. Set in the near future, this book is sure to please. Take a look.
In the near future, megacorporations own everything. It is the era of the advanced gig economy, where desperation runs rampant among the roaming contractor companies that serve the united conglomerates.
Jules Romero, a college student in need of tuition money, signs on with a crew of freelance surveyors as they delve beneath Lonesome Bluff in the service of a mining megacorporation.
The crew discovers a majestic, mysterious ancient city buried beneath the mountain, but their mission is paramount: They must continue their search for valuable mineral resources. As they delve deeper underground at the behest of their corporate clients, they are slowly overtaken by a horrifying illness that inflicts psychosis and mania in its victims, pitting the crew against one other.
Jules, a passionate student of archaeology, must explore the ruins of the lost city and unravel the mystery of this illness as his crewmembers begin their descent into madness. But he cannot imagine the unsettling horrors that lurk in the labyrinthian tunnels, or the maddening lifeform that awaits him far below, deep within the earth.
