They asked for 300 word synopsis for the back cover plus an author bio.
1] I am boring,
2] I use a pseudonym, even worse
3] I want them in the book, not into me.
I wrote 337 word synopsis and from the best I can read it, fine print, lousy eyes, they never edited it. What do you guys think of this for my back cover??
Even amongst specials, they call us SPECIAL!
[Back cover word synopsis]
T1 covert spec ops team is as perfect as they get. They have a history that exceeds seven years of being together. During that time they have never failed to complete a mission, nor have they been forced to call for assistance for the extraction on completion. There are always several ways in and several ways out. Not today, they get to the plane at the designated time, or they miss out and have to cross country home again.
There have been times when all the intel they were given has not turned out to be correct and the victim, whoops, target, is not in the right place, at the right time or some other parameter was not valid. In these rare cases, our team has stayed to intel gather and rejig plans so that the next team who comes through will have a better chance to complete with much better data.
This time their insertion is unconventional to say the least. In an attempt to have them arrive without other countries and secret services noticing, they are parachuted in. This has to be done well above commercial air space limits, 45,000 feet, much higher in fact. The ‘space suits’ they are given were a rush job and two things are very special about them. They have astonishingly low air resistance assisting them to plummet towards earth at 400 mph, but also they have virtually no metal on them so conventional radar cannot see them. Here’s hoping.
In position to assassinate the Lieutenant Colonel who is imminently due to commence a coup d’etat, not everything goes as planned. Another contracting team is in town and doesn’t the fur and bullets fly over that.
We leave town, head due south, as the vulture flies, to an old airstrip ten degrees east of due south. Never leave your windows down when you are pursued and attacked by Spotted Hyena.
You would think that making it to the airstrip before their pickup plane arrives would work out perfectly, wouldn’t you?
