The Serious Secret of Charlie Zimmerman

The book called “Flying Sucks” that I’ve been working on is finished and has a new name.

In fact, the hero of the story even got a new name — Charlie.

The name of the book is now, “The Serious Secret of Charlie Zimmerman” and it should be available in the Amazon store (for download, it’s digital only) in a few days. I’ll post a link here when it’s available.

Thanks to everyone who gave me feedback on the beta version of the story!


New Blurb for the Book

Every book needs a summary — the one on the back of a book (or inside front-cover for a hardback) is written by the publisher, but the one that goes out in a query letter to get the book sold is written by the author.

Here’s one I worked on tonight — let me know what you think about it.

Charlie may be just a teenager, but he’s old enough to know his new ability to fly has to be kept completely secret if he doesn’t want to spend the rest of his life locked in a laboratory being prodded, poked, and probed (the Three P’s of abduction).

So when the creepy Mr. Smith discovers his secret and turns on the blackmail, Charlie¬†doesn’t have any choice but to go along with the plans. Plans that include a multi-state crime wave where Bryan takes all the chances and Smith gets all the loot!

With Mr. Smith on one side and the FBI on the other, Charlie’s¬†caught in a trap that will tear his whole family apart — unless he can carry out a scheme that will turn the tables on the evil Mr. Smith.
