Blurbity blurb

If I were a more organized person, I would have included this with the pretty picture last night.

At sixteen, Tucker has nothing but the clothes on his back, the bruises on his ribs, and the truth about what happened between him and the band teacher. He left home looking to escape his memories, but all he’s found on the road are new bad ones to take their place.

Then he meets Gabriel, a beautiful hustler, and Kelsey, a fire-obsessed girl with a head full of fairy tales. After Gabriel rescues him from a pair of drunks looking for a fight, Tucker’s happy to join him in the abandoned factory he calls home. All he must do in return is help keep Kelsey safe.

But Kelsey’s not what Tucker thinks she is, and safety isn’t what she needs from him. To help her, he’ll have to face the secret he’s been running from, and the flames she’s running to find.

I’ve spent the morning trying to write a blurb for “Phoenix.” Once I’ve finally got it straight, I’ll put it up here. That should be, erm, within the next few days. I really wish writing marketing materials was half as fun as writing stories.

The sky was gray when I started. It’s now blue. Perfect weather for a spring hike, but first, as promised, a story recommendation. Today, “River Bride,” by Nghi Vo, at Expanded Horizons. I’m drawn both to the point of view character and the river herself. There’s a sense of wonder and of confidence to them that I find very pleasing.
