Working Cover for The Oculars
This week, we finally got back to writing and got a bit done on The Oculars, our current horror work-in-progress. In addition to some editing and rewriting, we put our heads together and came up with a draft of the back cover blurb for the novel and the description we will post on Amazon on the sales page.
“What Ethan Owenby wants is a normal life. Years earlier, a misguided and alcohol-fueled decision to take his Uncle Jonno’s place as the driver in a car crash had terrible repercussions. Unbeknownst to Ethan, an innocent young woman lost her life in that same instant.
Now, Ethan has served his time and come home to Riverside Oregon, but his newly discovered peace is shattered when he receives a mysterious package containing research and designs for a radical new optical technology. Amongst the nearly incomprehensible information is a rambling and confusing video from his reclusive yet brilliant, Uncle Wilson warning him – tell no one about the Oculars.
Little does Ethan know that there are dark forces that will stop at nothing, even murder, to get their hands on the Oculars. The Oculars allow the wearer to see the denizens and landscapes of the Dark Spectrum, the abode of spirits and ghosts, but not without a price. As old secrets are uncovered and strange enemies roam the small town of Riverside, Ethan must find a way to protect his friends, old and new, from those who will stop at nothing to possess the Oculars.”
Now that bit of housekeeping is complete, we’ll be mocking up a few covers and trying to get through the final edits.
As always, thank you for sticking with us. We know we haven’t been the speediest writers lately.
