These days I’ve been mostly working on a new science fiction novel. Since I’m not the greatest writer of blurbs, I decided to start working on the blurb for this one ahead of time. I know it’s an advertising thing, but I don’t think blurbs (or cover art) should make promises that a book can’t keep. Here is the blurb so far for Pilot (working title).
Darren Anderson knows that life rarely gives anything without taking something away.
Aliens are real…awesome.
They want to establish a relationship with the people of Earth…also pretty awesome.
Darren’s older brother Mike wants to reconnect after a decade and a half of generally not giving a damn. Not awesome.
Pilot is the story of two estranged brothers set to a backdrop of intergalactic conflict and the darkness of human nature. It begins the journey of the Anderson family who will discover that no matter how far you travel from home, wonder and terror often walk hand-in-hand.
Hopefully, by the time this book is finished the blurb will be too;)
