In preparation for publishing my second novel, Marking Territory on July 26 (Woot!) I’m giving everything a spit shine in preparation. First up are the first book’s blurb. The old one works but I want to punch it up a bit. What do you guys think?
Would you choose the life Pet or Predator?
Thomas just wants a simple, stable existence, but saddled with unemployment, an absentee girlfriend, and the impending unpaid rent, change is hurtling down on him whether he likes it or not. Following the sudden murder of his strange elderly neighbor, Thomas awakens on wrong side of the Veil transformed into a mountain lion and thrust into a dangerous world of magic.
Now to escape enslavement as a familiar to a human wizard, Thomas must team up with a disgraced Inquisitor and a pyromaniac squirrel to dodge the fate pushed upon him by haughty mages, manipulative union leaders, and violent werewolves. Does Thomas have the will to seize his own destiny through wit and claw to become the first Freelance Familiar?
Off Leash is the first book in Daniel Potter’s Freelance Familiars series, a humorous adventure story beset by immoral mages and fast talking animals. If you enjoyed the Dresden Files and want an overtone of Discworld, you’ll love this rollicking urban fantasy adventure.
