Today I'm revisiting the blurb from yesterday. (No, I'm totally not doing this at the last minute and didn't get the initial design of the book three paperback spread from the cover designers this morning with the sales copy from book two on the back because I hadn't given them the book three sales copy. Why do you ask?)
Ahem. Right. So here's where we were yesterday:
At the edge of the universe, the colony of Jackpot Drift embraces high clan trying to escape, low clan trying to get by, and bickering AIs with nowhere else to go. Also in the mix — competing gods, the newly created flitterkin, and homicidal sheep. Who wouldn’t want to live there?
Nanite technician Sil Tailingstown controls — mostly — the god of chaos. She and the other colonists race to make the planet self-sufficient, just in case the powers that be decide the universe would be safer without Jackpot Drift. Not an easy task when terraforming stopped after one valley and the last governor diverted available resources.
But getting cut off might not be their worst problem…
For a space western with a different kind of wilderness, grab The Chaos Nexus. Welcome back to Jackpot Drift!
Dripping with suckitude, but at least it gave me something to work with.
After a bit of tweaking today, this is what it looks like now:
A tiny colony at the edge of the universe — high clan looking to escape, low clan trying to get by, and bickering AIs with nowhere else to go. Also in the mix: competing gods, newly created flitterkin, and homicidal sheep. Who wouldn’t want to live on Jackpot Drift?
With threats of annihilation coming from the civilized world, Sil and the other colonists race to make the planet self-sufficient. But not all danger comes through the wormhole.
Starvation may be the least of their worries…
For a space western with a different brand of hero, grab The Chaos Nexus. Welcome back to Jackpot Drift!
It's not perfect — I feel like there could be another sentence in the last paragraph so it flows more nicely, and a few other tweaks need to happen here and there — but it's better.
The beauty of Print On Demand (POD) publishing is that by the time anyone sees the back cover, they've already bought the book. So I'll have some time to make changes in the online sales copy.
