There's a reason this stupid letter is 10 points in Words With Friends or Scrabble. It's actually pretty uncommon, and nothing super-awesome starts with it.
Except for Jack. He's my protagonist in the tentatively titled, The Curse.
Being pre-published and finishing my first manuscript, I rarely talk about it. I guess I think it's going to jinx it or something, and no one will be interested in publishing it.
But I'll talk a little bit about Jack, because my MS will soon be complete.
Go ahead, stare.
And get a towel for that drool. It's gross. I'll wait.
Yeah. I know the feeling.
Anyway, back to what I was saying...Jack Harris is in his late twenties. He's a pharmaceutical sales rep, and lives in Boston. Actually, he's been in Boston ever since he started college...he's a smart guy, and went to BU for his undergrad, and BC for his MBA. He's successful in his career, but hasn't been so lucky in love, sticking more to, uh, casual relationships than anything else. Nothing's felt right to him. He's sweet and loyal, but needs to take the blinders off.
He needs a push in the right direction.
Thankfully he gets one, in the form of some divine intervention. The Fates have sent a messenger to guide Jack toward the one meant for him.
Stop screaming at me...I don't want to give away any of the plot. But if you're interested in a super-short blurb, click on "Novellas and Short Stories" up above. Though, the manuscript is getting a bit long to be called a novella, and it may end up novel-length after all, in which case I'll just move it over.
Well, ladies and gents! What do you think of this tiny meet-and-greet with Jack?
