I am gearing up to publish my first novel, FINDER OF LOST THINGS, and I’m predictably nervous. I’d like to recruit you wonderful readers to comment on the back cover blurb and cover image for the chance to win a brand-new hard copy of The Dalai Lama’s Cat and the Art of Purring, the second book in David Michie’s series (check out my review of the first novel, The Dalai Lama’s Cat). To enter, write at least a 25-word comment below by Dec. 27, 2013, and I’ll enter you into the drawing.
Here’s the front cover and the back cover text. I’m most interested in getting your take on the back cover blurb, since it’s arguably the most important element in selling a book:
WHAT IF A PERSON COULD REMEMBER LIFE BETWEEN LIVES–THE LIFE OF THE SOUL?
Lila Chance must find a missing child who has a secret gift . . . a gift so profound and powerful it could change the course of history. Unfortunately for the missing boy, Lila is not the only one looking for him.
Lila lives a quiet life in Boulder, Colorado, ghost-writing amazingly accurate and engaging eulogies. Then an astonishing message from the missing child blows away everything she believes in, tumbling her down the rabbit hole of metaphysical discovery.
When she finds out the missing boy may hold the key to finding her own kidnapped son, Lila will stop at nothing to uncover the truth.
Part old-fashioned mystery, part new age exploration, FINDER OF LOST THINGS is an entertaining and intriguing look at the mysteries of relationships, the meaning of existence, and the most enigmatic question of all: What is life between lives?
Award-winning author P.J. Swanwick lives with her family near Boulder, Colorado. She writes on a wide variety of topics that interest her, such as where neuroscience and psychology intersect with metaphysics, spirituality, and creativity. In addition to writing, she manages Fiction for a New Age, which reviews metaphysical, spiritual, and visionary novels.
Well? What do you think? Add your 25 words’ worth in the Comments section and perhaps win a hard copy of The Dalai Lama’s Cat and the Art of Purring. And while you’re at it, check out my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Age-Fiction.
