Persistence of Vision; Book 1 of Interchron

Hello All! So I decided today to do a bit of shameless promotion. (Yeah, I'm an author; it happens.) You see, I STILL don't have a release date for my book. It feels like it's taking 4-EVER, but I know most first time authors feel that way. Though my cover is on my blog, and most of you have probably seen it, I will still end up doing some "Cover Reveals" with a few different book bloggers. I haven't approached anyone yet, though, because I don't have a release date and my publisher has yet to put my book into the Amazon or Goodreads data base. I know you can add a book to Goodreads manually, but I'm not sure what my publisher's policy is on this. I just emailed them today, but haven't received a response yet.

Anyway, (sorry for long preface) but here is my book's cover and blurb. I'm still holding out hope that it will be out before the end of 2012. The final proof has been ordered and I'm still hoping to get it in under the wire so it can be out for the holiday season. Everyone cross your fingers for me! Thanks to all of you for your never-ending support. I really appreciate it! :D

In a world where collective hives are enslaving the population and individuals have been hunted to the verge of extinction, Maggie Harper, and independent 21st Century woman, must find the strength to preserve the freedom of the future, but without the aid of her memories.

After experiencing a traumatic time loss, Maggie is plagued by a barrage of images she can't explain. When she's attacked by a creep with a spider's web tattoo, she is saved by Marcus, a man she's never met, but somehow remembers. He tells her that both he and her creepy attacker are from a future in which individuals are being murdered by collectives, and Marcus is part of the rebellion. The collectives have acquired time travel and they plan to enslave the human race throughout all of history. The flashes Maggie has been seeing are echoes of lost memories, and the information buried deep within them is instrumental in defeating the collective hives.

In order to preserve the individuality of mankind, Maggie must try to re-discover stolen memories, re-kindle friendships she has no recollection of, and wade through her feelings for the mysterious Marcus, all while dodging the tattooed assassins the collectives keep sending her way.

If Maggie can't fill the holes in her memory and find the answers to stop the collectives, the world both in her time and in all ages past and future will be doomed to enslavement in the grey, mediocre collectives. As the danger swirls around her and the collectives close in, Maggie realizes she must make a choice: stand out or fade away...

What are your thoughts, Hobson?
(Bonus respect points if anyone can tell me what movie that quote is from!)
But really, what do you think?

  2. Blurb sounds cool!
    Don't panic about the release date. Publishers move at their own speed.

  3. The quote is from 'Arthur'. The quotes made famous to me by your dad. And I think your story line is unique among the 'many!' dystopian stories of late. Can't wait to read it in published form.
