Ah, things are really rolling now. After the mysterious appearance of a listing for my next novel on Amazon recently, now a blurb has appeared in my email inbox.
It’s quite strange and in some ways depressing to see several years of work reduced to a blurb, but I think they did a good job of making it sound interesting. What do you think?
For Jeff Brennan, juggling multiple identities is nothing new. In his online life he has dozens of different personalities and switches easily between them. In his offline life, he shows different faces to different people: the caring grandson, the angry eco-protester, the bored IT consultant.
But when the beautiful Marie mistakes him for a famous blogger, the lines between his carefully segregated personas begin to blur. As the two of them start to form a life together, Jeff is gradually forced into more and more desperate measures to maintain the illusion he has accidentally created.
In a society where truth is a matter of perspective, identities become interchangeable. Caught up in his own web of lies, how much further can Jeff go? And even if he wanted to turn back, would he be able to?
I’ve also been told that a cover designer has been commissioned and sent a brief. Will post something up when I see it. By the way, isn’t “blurb” a candidate for Ugliest Word in the English Language? Sounds like someone regurgitating his breakfast.
