Hello everyone! Last night I did something slightly impulsive. I put together an unofficial blurb for The Desiccated and then (along with the cover) I put it up on Goodreads.
I think that the best way to get people interested in reading it is to start talking about it more. I’ve been working on the draft for this book for over a year and I started thinking that maybe I am being too critical of it. I need to write it without fear and doubt. I know that it is a great story and if I don’t push myself it might never get done. So without further ado, here’s the blurb for The Desiccated:
As birds fall from the sky, an omen of danger descends on the tight-knit community of Black Ridge Falls. One by one, people collapse from an unknown illness, and Lia Thomas’ perfectly constructed safety net begins to unravel. When her best friend becomes infected, she must rely on the word of strangers to save his life… or at very least, his humanity. With only fourteen days to find a cure, they race to escape quarantine and save the town from extinction, but a single drop of water could jeopardize everything.
What do you think? The story has come a long way from when I first started writing it and I’m very proud of the way that it is shaping up. The cover was created by Once Upon A Time Covers and I loved it ever since I first saw it. Since I’ll be working on this it’s probable that my posting here will be sparse. I hope you all can understand and be patient just a bit longer.
