Long story short, I'm giving my novel LIZARDBOY another chance, but I'm taking it slow this time and planning everything out in treatment form first. 

Need an opinion on a major plot point!

I wanted an interesting way for the serial killer to frame the protagonist with a series of murders -- I know he owns a lizard, so I looked up venomous lizards and I'm left with either the Gila Monster or the Beaded Lizard. The venom is not normally fatal to humans... BUT my killer works/interns in a lab and I'm wondering if I said they isolated/concentrated the toxin and then laced the marijuana that the protagonist sells... if you'd believe that would actually kill someone, if this toxin was smoked and inhaled. :O Since it's so obscure I can't find anyone who's tested anything similar in real life. Just wondering if you'd believe it if you read it in a novel or if you'd call shenanigans on me right away.

Snapperz's Profile Picture

My name's Alanna, but people here mostly know me as Snappy.
For that reason, I get a lot of people thinking I'm a man. This, I am not.

I have lived in Calgary, CAN, Vancouver, CAN, and London, UK.
I get a new tattoo every time I move to a new city. It wasn't intentional. It just ended up that way.
I intend to move to many more cities.

As you can tell by looking at my gallery, I used to do traditional and digital art, but I haven't done either in years.
I still do photography, but that is on the backburner while I focus on my writing career.

I am currently a contracted screenwriter for NGN Productions, a company in LA. I won't call myself a "professional" until they pay me on the first day of pre-production.
I have four projects in development right now, including a remake of Orson Welles' The Stranger (1946). I release updates here as I am permitted.

Feel free to add me on Facebook or Twitter! (Just let me know who you are.)…!/shadow0nthesun

I just love your HDR photos; They are very tasteful! Not the Heavily Destructive Retouching you see elsewhere.. Do you use your camera's bracketing function for them? Keep up the good work.

Haha, thank you, I try not to go overboard with it. 
Yes, bracketing and shot burst all the way. :nod:
