Baby steps toward publishing

I’ve sent the first ten pages  of The Genealogist’s Guest off for an initial manuscript critique. I felt this was the next step toward publishing. I should get some feedback soon. Meanwhile I’ve been working on the book blurb, and staying under 150 words, and not revealing too much is a challenge. I updated my profile on some social networks, yes I can’t help but visit. I learn about marketing, publishing, and writing book  blurbs. Here’s what  think will be the final draft.

It began decades ago …

A woman in fear of losing her family remains silent about her knowledge of sexual abuse unknowingly opens a portal to the underworld. Secrets must be told beginning with the real reason her fifth generation grandfather killed Wilbur Savage in1887, or the family will suffer.

Secrets haunted them all …

But vengeance is family strong when ancestors return to save one of their own. Genealogists Liz Taber is plunged into the underworld to face demons who rely on their victim’s shame and fear to conceal their immoral crimes against children, even in death.

She must destroy them … before they prey on the next generation.

My dream is to become a professional bullshit artist. Or, as others prefer to call them, a novelist. I know, a highly unoriginal and unattainable goal. What's my back-up plan? Ninja fairy. Here's to being disgustingly unoriginal!
