I’m still working out the kinks and edits for Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd. but I took some time to write up the first draft of a blurb.
What do you think? Would it intrigue you enough to purchase?
Retired Temporal Agent Wilda just wants to run her Toronto shop, garbing Time Tourists and sending them on their merry way into the past. She has her cat, her friends, and her whisky. She’s content.
All that changes when a deathly ill Traveller literally falls onto her doorstep, setting off a chain of events which forces her to return to the job she’d retired from decades before.
The Agency sends her and her assistant, Mattea, back into three dangerous eras of history to find the disease vector threatening the life of every modern Traveller.
If Wilda can’t return in time with the right disease vector, the modern scientists can’t synthesize a cure for the disease. She searches through a teeming desert bazaar amongst the luxury of the court of Mansa Musa. She explores the dark forests of pre-Columbian America, fighting against the heartbreak of true love. Finally, she becomes entangled in the convoluted politics of 12th century Norse-ruled Orkney, sifting through the horrific carnage of a murdered village.
If she doesn’t succeed in her mission, all modern Travellers will fall victim to the ghastly disease. She must navigate politics, bandits, camels, and violence, complete her mission, and return to the present.
Will she lose herself in the depths of her own purposely-forgotten past?
