While reading the blurb of THE SCORPIO RACES for the hundredth time this morning, I came up with the idea to model the blurb for my Shiny New Idea after it. Consider this my pitch in less than 100 words:
There are, of course, some pesky kinks I need to work out, like
1. What’s so special about the fruits?
2. What is a Scavenger?
3. Likewise, what is a Trader? How are they dangerous?
4. How do they differ from humans?
5. So what if Sean finally makes a promise? How is he in danger from the Traders?
6. Subplots, subplots!
7. What does Sean want?
BLOOD PROMISE actually came about as a short story, but as I wrote it I thought I could take it further and develop it into a full-length novel. This is what I have for now. I’ll still be working on completing 15 MINUTES, but if BLOOD PROMISE takes flight maybe it’ll be the next story I work on, instead of the one I had in mind.
