Slash is a metafictional erotic thriller / comedic murder mystery / romantic slasher to be published in seven episodes throughout 2014.
Alexis Bledsoe would die if anyone found out about her secret crush. As star of TV's #1 family drama, she's certain coming out of the closet would end her career. Worse still, her one true love is America's hottest actress, Lissa Blaine, who just happens to play her older and prettier sister each week on Koop's Kitchen.
So Alex hates Lissa, too: wishes her dead every time she stumbles onto a tabloid cover with a cocktail in hand and some new B-list beefcake on her arm.
Desperate for an outlet each night after filming wraps, Alex closes the shades on her trailer and reads slash fiction on internet fan forums: trashy little tales written by viewers about an imagined romance between her and Lissa's characters. All unbelievable moans and trite whispers, Alex believes them a secret best taken to her grave—until an anonymous author begins to post violent slash stories that seem to foretell the death of the cast of Koop's Kitchen.
When real life actors start dying in scenes suspiciously similar to those Alex has been reading, she is forced to search the stories for suspects and clues instead of steamy caresses. And with everyone she knows a potential perverted murderer or future victim, keeping her true self a secret is more a matter or life and death than ever before.
Episode One: "Reality/Show" throws readers right into the action with Alex's discovery of the first sinister slash story and a suspiciously similar suicide. As she wonders whether there's something more sinister at play than her own social paranoia, she struggles to act normal around the cast and crew who could be trying to kill her.
