In order to get all my ducks in a row for the publisher to pick up my sequel, I wrote the Back Book Cover Text.
This is always hard for me to do, because you essentially need to boil down a 100,000+ word novel into a sub-250 word narrative that will intrigue a potential buyer without revealing too much information. It’s a delicate balance. If the front cover gets you to pick up the book, the back cover seals the deal.
But, I think this one turned out better than the first.
After retiring from outlawing, Jedidiah Huckleberry Smith just wanted to be left alone in Wyoming with his guns and regrets.
But then he discovered an entrance to a lost world, a place full of grand adventure, as well as spectacular dangers from both prehistoric dinosaurs and a race of savage apes intent on conquest.
Now, a new fort has been established on the other side, and a strange civilization of humans and dinosaurs have been located. The people are descendants from another time, long trapped in prehistory, and with them a fragile alliance is created.
But will it be enough as Jed faces vengeance from enemies both new and old?
Will his savagery and cunning keep him and his love alive?
Or will they die, on a mountain of fired brass, amidst the guttural bellows of barbaric apes and roars of monstrous dinosaurs?
Jed doesn’t know, but he’s always willing to shoot first and figure out the rest afterwards.
