This month’s assignment should I choose to accept it:
NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month (not affiliated with the real NaBloPoMo).
Write up a back cover blurb for a book you have written or would like to write. It should be short, sweet, yet give a sense of people and events without totally spoiling the ending. NaNoWriMo participation is not required, and the blurb may be for fiction or nonfiction as you see fit.
Far be it for me to turn down a challenge. My entry won’t be for Echoes, because I’ve already pitched that to agents and publishers with some success, instead I give you the cover copy for Appetites. (Did you hear Hitchcock there?)
Make sure to read the other entries as well. Who knows, maybe you’ll find the next book for your want-list.
They say “know your enemy, address your fears”, but what if the evil you do know pales in comparison to the evil you don’t?
For reformed rapist, Peter Wulfe, the sleepy northern town of Luna Falls is his last chance at a normal life as he strives to put his past behind him. A patient of a radical new therapy, Peter knows he is a new man, but the townsfolk aren’t as convinced and even Peter doesn’t truely trust himself . To make matters worse, his new friend, woodsman Louis Garou, doesn’t subscribe to society’s restraints and preaches those values to Peter whenever they meet, threatening to undermine his resolve.
Shortly after Peter’s arrival in Luna Falls, people start disappearing and turning up in pieces scattered in the surrounding woods. Superstition runs rampant and Peter finds himself labelled a werewolf. When Peter can’t account for missing chunks of time, even he starts to believe the rumours to be true.
Peter’s dream of a ‘normal’ life is shattered. As he tries to stay one step ahead of the local police, a deranged killer, and angry townsfolk, Peter struggles to find the truth, to prove to them all, and to himself, that he is innocent, this time…
