Crime Family SB (what do you guys think?)
Sun Feb 12, 2012 11:32 am
So I've been storybooking for quite a while and now have a bit of an urge to start my own. The problem is since this will be my first one I'm sure I'll need help.
Have a read of my SB idea (hopefully it hasn't been done before), and if you're interested to join it or help me co-write it then please let me know. Thanks!
It's set in Chicago during the 1930s/1960s and is based on two rival crime families vying for power in one city. Each family is involved in the bootlegging and cat house trade, and each have connections in high places and so they can't be touched by the police. However, they all have one thing in common: each of them has a rat in their group feeding information to an unknown source (a specialist sheriff intent on bringing both families down). There's plenty of murder, love, betrayal and mystery along the way.
It's 'The Godfather' mixed with 'Boardwalk Empire' and a bit of 'Romeo and Juliet'.
Anyway, there it is. Please let me know what you think. Thanks guys!

I would be interested in an SB like this. And I
playing traitors and rats, etc. This could totally work and even be fun!
PM me if you want to chat more. Maybe I can help.
To see a world in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

Yup, I'd love to join this!
Besides, if you want perfection, write a haiku. Anything longer is bound to have some passages that don't work as well as they might.
