Forever in my heart
Happy Monday everyone! I’m spotlighting Equity of Evil by Rudy Mazzocchi for you today and it certainly has a lot of great reviews already. It’s a medical thriller that is based on actual events and it’s definitely on my TBR list. I used to read a lot of medical thrillers but have gotten away from them in the last few years. I wouldn’t mind reading a few now and then. Rudy joins us today to talk about “The Top Ten Reasons I Wrote EQUITY of EVIL”…
I don’t like or have the time to play golf.
I use to be an avid reader of thrillers and science fiction during my extensive travel – sometimes reading 2-3 novels a week. After my career started to give me access to very early discoveries of new medical technologies (many that could be 7-10 years away from ever seeing the “light of day”), I soon realized that my real world was more thrilling and scarier than what I was reading.
Writing business plans and raising money for new start-up companies trained me in the art of “story-telling”. With the inclusion of a couple of “what ifs” and “why nots”, I realized I could soon write interesting stories and scenes.
I was involved in some of the early technologies described in EQUITY of EVIL and it took a couple of decades before I felt comfortable talking or writing about them.
I always thought that a combination “business”, “medical thriller” and “suspense” novel might have broad appeal to a larger audience that any one individual genre.
I discovered that writing was therapeutic and a great way to express myself after spending years of exploring new innovations of other people under confidentiality agreements which prohibited me from saying anything to anyone! It allowed my tongue to wonder a bit….
After starting the manuscript, it became a challenge to prove to others that I could actually FINISH it!
After being rejected by so many Literary Agencies and Publishers, it became a challenge to prove to others that I could actually PUBLISH it!
I have enjoyed every minute of the process, from seeing the words flow across my screen to reading the first review on Amazon.com.
… and the #1 Reason I wrote EQUITY of EVIL:
It just had to be written!
About Equity of Evil
A Venture Capital Fund makes a risky investment to start a challenging new business that appears capable of reaching profitability with modest capital requirements. The real challenge: optimizing one of the most frequently performed surgical procedure in the World — Abortion.
Founding Partner, Roman Citrano, a successful entrepreneur turned venture capitalist, soon struggles with what he believes is his choice to establish the controversial new company. He soon realizes that he and others are but pawns on a massive, ugly chessboard being manipulated to benefit a far larger, illicit market in human organs for transplantation. Unknowingly, prime, hyper-enriched organs are spawned from the aborted fetuses and grown like hydroponic vegetables.
An unfolding world of deceit, rape, human trafficking and assassination becomes deeply personal as Roman’s sole love interest secretly uses one of his new abortion services to terminate her untimely pregnancy. When she disappears, his frantic search becomes a hellish nightmare that grows worse by the hour.
Based on true events, this bold novel involves some of the world’s oldest, most emotional and controversial issues. At the core of each matter is man’s predisposition to control and take ownership of the human spirit for the sake of profit and person gain… such is the dark and brutal new world where life becomes the equity of evil.
