Writers of the Future Winner David Sakmyster Makes Hay with Novels and Screenplays


Sakmyster, a New York resident, likes to scare you with his fantasy/paranormal novels, and now is the season

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

Time to pull out the Halloween decorations, and look for a good scary book to start the rites of fall. David Sakmyster's, newly published book "Blindspots," 7Realms Publishing, just might fill your needs. The tag-line is "It's What You Can't See That Matters." Six strangers from across the globe, all afflicted with Prosopagnosia - a disease that renders the sufferer unable to recognize faces - find themselves drawn to a secluded Vermont clinic specializing in their condition. Once there, these strangers find they are not only able to see, but somehow recognize each other. That is when the scare begins.

David started his career with his short story "The Red Envelope," published in the 22th Annual L. Ron Presents Writers of the Future back in 2006, and since has been entering screenplay and novel contests. "Silver and Gold" was a finalist in Foreward Reviews "Book of the Year Awards" in 2009. David has published twenty short stories in various small press magazines and has published twelve novels, a good portion of them deal in the paranormal in some way.

"I'm no stranger to contests, and I recommend them to new writers whenever I have the opportunity," David said in a recent interview. "They have certainly done right by me."
