Back Cover Blurb Finished ...

Whew! It wasn't easy. I never realized that a back cover blurb could be so difficult to come up with, especially if you're trying to grab the reader's attention and encourage them to read the book, all the while keeping it under 150 words. No easy task.

But, since we're talking about the old back cover blurb, I thought I would post it here for you. Hopefully, you'll be interested, intrigued, and curious. Let's see...

It’s the turn of the century, and dirigibles are the modern mode of travel. One of them is shadowing The Seahorse as it sails toward a fog-shrouded island off the coast of Peru, bringing young Richie Armstrong ever nearer to the legendary Incan treasure—and the mysterious Golden Disk.

A strange chain of events has convinced Richie that the airship is being piloted by his archrival—the greedy, oily-haired Hans Von Hisle. Although Richie has in his possession the only known map to the location of the island, would Hans even need a map to spot the island from his lofty perch among the clouds?

It’s a race against time. If Hans reaches the island first, Richie knows the Golden Disk and the precious possibility it holds for changing his past will be lost forever. But there's something else on the island—something that may change his future. And they're bloodthirsty.

Now, after reading that, if your interest is piqued, and you just simply have to read the book, it's currently available in digital format at AMAZON and at BARNES & NOBLE.

My publisher is also doing a promotional Limited Edition Print version that will be coming soon. So keep watching this blog for an opportunity to win a signed copy of a new steampunk adventure—Cannibal Island.
