Do you have trouble answering that question about your book? I sure do. I'm almost afraid to answer it. What if they think it sounds stupid? But...I think I'm going to have to come up with a good answer because lots of people having been asking lately. The deer-in-the-headlights look probably isn't the best thing.
I'm thinking, "Mormon youth fight to free the earth from alien invaders." Or something like that.
Anyway, if you really want to know what it's about (you do right?), here's the blurb I posted on my brand-new website.
Hannah and her friends have been warned about the danger lurking
outside of their secret refuge, but some things, like friendship and
freedom, are more important than staying safe.
Hannah and Derek have spent their lives hidden underground, out of the
reach of the alien invaders who devastated the world years before. When
McKenzie and Jeremy decide to run away, Hannah and Derek follow,
determined to bring their friends home.
Once outside, the four teens soon realize they cannot return to their
refuge without endangering everyone there. Captured, enslaved and
separated, Hannah, Derek and McKenzie each learn the unique role they
must play in liberating the Earth, because even an alien invasion cannot
stop the work of God.
Oh, that really leaves out so much cool stuff. Like the Avenging Angels--high tech air/space strike fighters. And Toovuts, the Paiute Indian Wolf deity. And the overskins. And...well, lots of stuff. Why do blurbs always feel so inadequate?
I just want to thank you all for all the love on my last post. It really is wonderful to be able to celebrate our successes together. I just love this community. Thanks so very much!
