Blurbs in Progress

 

And now I must start the mind-strangling exercise of trying to summarise my entire 120k words into one tiny, pithy, enticing back of book blurb. So here’s my first attempt:

Haunted by memories of a kid’s party that went disastrously wrong, magician Peter Ruchio has condemned himself to a life entertaining rest-home geriatrics. When he meets the beautiful con artist Kate Minola, she seems to offer the chance to forget his past just as she sees in him an opportunity to change her own fortune. But, as they become ever closer, just who is under whose illusion? Can two habitual deceivers ever really trust each other? And can the past ever be forgotten?

Somewhere Before

What’s it called when you have a déjà vu about having a premonition that you will have a déjà vu?
