Journey of 1000 Miles

All You Do is Pitch, Pitch, Pitch

Okay, so it’s more of a description because I’m not using this to pitch my book to anyone. But, the pun from the title doesn’t work otherwise.

If anyone reading this could spare 2 minutes. I am rounding the corner on things I can do to my nearly published book until editors are finished with it. I am looking into what to put on the back cover. Mostly, this is where my brain turns to oatmeal, bland and lumpy. I need some ideas on how to put some brown sugar in it. Can you read it and let me know your honest thoughts?

Carter isn’t your typical teenager. In fact, none of the students at Pemberton Academy are typical since all have suffered from or witnessed acts of temporal displacement or telepathy. Carter is a Leaper, someone who has a condition called Chronological Displacement Syndrome, and is prone to spontaneously traveling back in time. His most recent leap unwinds his sense of reality as he learns there is more to his condition than time travel. Mo, a fellow classmate and telepath, joins him on a fast moving journey to learn about their abilities full potential while uncovering secrets along the way. They will reveal what happened to Carter’s father, the background of the trainer assigned to teach them the depth of their abilities and what happens to some of the senior kids after they graduate. Their excitement reaches a pinnacle once Hunters discover that there is more to them than meets the eye. And on top of that, their school is not all that it seems.

  1. Is there a way to build suspense without saying the word “more” at the end? You say that there is “more” to Carter and then you say there is “more” to the school. Surely there is a “more” poetic/descriptive/exciting way to put that.

    It sounds great otherwise! Makes me want to read the book!
