WORD COUNT: 8,003/75,000
Day Two of the challenge went well, even though I spent a few hours defrosting the freezer for my mother as my Mother’s Day present to her. Defrosting the freezer wasn’t especially fun, but it needed to be done and my mother appreciated it, so I don’t consider it a waste of time.
Anyway, as I said in yesterday’s post, here are the two blurbs I’ve written for the book. I am posting them both here because I like them both but am not sure which one is best, so I would like to know which one y’all like best.
So here they are:
“On his first day at his new school, seventeen-year-old Kevin Jason discovers that he has superpowers when punches the local bully through the cafeteria wall. His father, a legendary superhero in his own right, confirms this discovery and decides to train Kevin in how to use and control his powers.
But things become complicated when it turns out that the local bully is the son of the worst supervillain in recent memory, who has just recently broken out of jail and has set his sights on Kevin for harming his son. His plans, however, extend far beyond getting revenge on Kevin, going all the way to the destruction of the world itself for the crimes committed against him years ago.
To protect himself, his family, and the world from this menace, Kevin Jason must learn how to use and control his superpowers. Yet with the villain’s relentless desire for revenge drawing him closer and closer to Kevin’s hometown every day, Kevin might not have enough time to become the superhero he needs to be.”
“Seventeen-year-old Kevin Johnson starts his first day at his new school by unintentionally punching the local bully through the cafeteria wall. When Kevin’s father, a legendary superhero, learns of this, he insists on training Kevin to master his new powers, though Kevin finds his father’s training methods to be a lot less exciting than they seem.
But Kevin’s training takes on new urgency when the local bully’s father–Master Chaos, one of the world’s most dangerous supervillains–breaks out of prison and declares Kevin his new archenemy for harming his son.
Now Kevin must complete his training as a superhero as Master Chaos makes his way closer and closer to Kevin’s town. If Kevin does not complete his training, then all of the power in the world won’t be able to keep him and his family safe from the madman who wants him dead.”
Tell me which one you like best in the comments below, as well as any other feedback or thoughts you may have on them.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Tomorrow is Day Three!
