Essence

Today’s daily prompt took me by surprise and a little off guard.

Write the blurb for the book jacket of the book you’d write, if only you had the time and inclination.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us BOOKS.

Having been focused so much on getting at least 75000 words on paper, I am currently going to for LENGTH and DETAIL, as relating to the novel I am working on, so bringing it back down to it’s essence is a interesting and challenging change of pace. But I will attempt non-less.

So here is the essence of “The Keeper”, the first book of a dark fantasy series I am currently working on.

“Summer 2010, 3-37 pm, 4 people end their lives in a small town in Southern California.

Three years later, Spring 2013 12:51 pm, 5 people take their lives in the most gruesome way.

With nothing tying  them together, and no explanation for their behavior, the new Chief of Police, Don Matthews begins to investigate their suspicious deaths, uncovering deep rooted secrets, while finding himself tangled in a web of family cover-ups, magick, and the mysterious women of the most prominent family of the City of Alden.

Enter the hidden world of “The Keeper”, where nothing is what is seems, and the mundane blends with the magickal.”
