Chris and Ann have never met each other but are both on a plane to Los Angeles. Unfortunately, they will not get there. The plane crashes, and there is a brilliant light into which some of the passengers are walking. But Chris and Ann are both certain that they are just not ready to go. As everyone else moves on to the next world, they flee from the wreckage and the others.
They begin a journey across the country, heading back home to the east coast in an attempt to figure out just why they are not ready to die. They realize that they have “unfinished business” that often, in theory, keeps certain souls in this world instead of the next.
During their trek back home, they learn a few things: about themselves, about each other, about being a “ghost,” and about the lives and loved ones they’ve left behind. One thing they do not learn, not until it’s too late, is that their unfinished business is connected to each other.
It’s 25 chapters, it’s all written and re-written, but it still needs one more re-write before I can’t start posting it here. Wish me luck on the queries that will go out to agents sometime in April.
And feel free to pick a title: The Connection or Unfinished Business?
