First for the news. As I mentioned in my very first post, I had been entered into a contest with Injoy Publications, Inc. The results were announced last week. I was not the winner. I am a little disappointed, but not terribly surprised. At least now I know where I stand and I am moving forward towards self-publishing “A Mighty Fortress”. That’s where the request comes in.
An author friend of mine (http://perryelisabeth.blogspot.com/p/cover-design.html) also makes book covers. She is running a sale this month where she will make a book cover at a discounted price. However, in order to take advantage of this, I need to have a back cover summary of my book. That is where you, the reader, come in. I have a summary that I think I am happy with, but I am in need of opinions, critiques, suggestions, etc.
So, what do you think?
Summary: Joshua and Ruth leave Illinois to join their parents in Montana. Along the way, their stagecoach is robbed and they have to escape for their lives…straight into the unsettled Wyoming and Montana territory. One of the outlaws is hot on their trail, determined not to leave any survivors.
Jed Stuart is a troubled young man. He ran away from home when he was fourteen and was immediately drawn into an outlaw group. Seven lawless years pass. Jed is tired of the outlaw life, but knows his boss will not let him go. What’s one more stagecoach robbery, anyway?
Little do these three know that this one event will change the course of each of their lives.
