I’ve been working the last couple of days to create a better blurb for my Amazon.com listing. I think I have finally managed to come up with something that works.
What do you think?
Throughout history we have been here. We were born of the union between the Watchers and the Daughters of Men. Our human hearts pump the blood of Angels through our veins yet, we are neither of one nor the other. Neither human nor Angel. We are the Alimentatori, descendants of the divine, and this is just the beginning…
In my two-hundred and sixty three years I have witnessed much, yet nothing could have prepared me for the devastating murder of my brother, Julian. While he lies in stasis awaiting The Release, his killer roams the Lazio region of Italy free to seek other victims. But, all is not right behind the veil of this ancient landscape. Its beauty hides a world of ancient secrets, hidden agendas and political intrigues. In order to extract my vengeance, I must first play a dangerous game according to another’s rules. Playing by the rules has never been my forte; toppling a game-board or two would suit me just fine! Regardless of the dangers that lie ahead, Retribution will be mine.
My name is Jacen Trudeau of the House of Samsaveel and I’m about to open Pandora’s Box.
I have a new blurb I’m thinking of putting on to my listing for Amazon. What do you all think?
Throughout history we’ve been here. Men and women whose genetic make-up is the stuff of Angels. Born of the union between the Watchers and the Daughters of Men my kind have given up the one thing that set us apart from the humans…our wings. Now hidden in plain sight, neither human nor Angel, we live secluded secret lives appearing as human as the man who sells you groceries or the woman who walks your dog.
I am no different. I am Jacen Trudeau of the House of Samsaveel. Like my people I have fought for my existence. When just a child, I survived a deadly attack which took the lives of my parents. Their loss drew my brother, Julian and I closer than we’d ever been. He cared for me, guided me through life, and wanted nothing more than to restore our family name. We were well on our way to fulfilling his dream when he was taken from me, murdered by a walking, talking urban legend on the night of his Ascension.
I was much too young to seek vengeance for my parents, but my brother’s killer won’t be so fortunate. A beast or no, they will die by my hand.
Though my world may never be right again, retribution is mine.
It seems that Jimmy Kimmel wants the internet to self-destruct. Why else would he have Sherlock and Star Trek star Benedict Cumberbatch read song lyrics from Internet favorite R. Kelly? It’s like Christmas came early to the Internet and Santa Claus knew exactly what we really wanted.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live the late night talk show host invited Cumberbatch to perform a dramatic reading of Kellz’ “Genius” off of his soon-to-be released evocatively titled album, “Black Panties.” As you can imagine, the results, recited in Cumberbatch’s deadpan British monotone, are fantastic. Next time, though, maybe find an otter that looks like Benedict Cumberbatch to read them instead.
Monday morning bright and early you will be able to get The Dagger of Aita: Retribution Kindle Ebook download for the starting price of just .99 cents. But, that price won’t last long, so, don’t miss out!
