Welcome to Query Saturday. Individual authors anonymously send a query to be read and critiqued by the Dear Author community of authors, readers and industry others. Anyone is welcome to comment. Published authors may do so under their own name or anonymously.
Readers, though, the way that I look at it is this: Would the hook itself interest you in reading the book. If yes, what interests you and if not, what would you change to make it more appealing?
AT ANY PRICE is a contemporary paranormal with a strong erotic romance. The word count is 97,000. Heat level is comparable to a Berkley Heat novel. Relationship is m/f. AT ANY PRICE is the first of a three book series.
Humans are not alone and never have been.
In the face of a terrorist attack, two strangers are forced to make the right choice and reveal natural abilities that are much more than human. The gifted telepath and the warrior king find they have bigger problems than saving the world. Drawn together by honor, bound by genetics, surviving plunges them into an intimate relationship and triggers the return of a race known as Keepers.
Heather is the woman Alex would have pursued if they’d been given that freedom. Now she is the lover he will defend. Survival of the species comes at a price and Alex will make any choice to ensure Heather is not the one to pay it.
Humans are not alone and never will be.
I’m an e-published author who has released eight books ranging from short stories to full length novels. I currently have one in print through major print house name removed and three in print through epublisher name removed.
If you are interested, I will gladly send you either the first three chapters of this story, or the complete manuscript. I have enclosed a synopsis and a SASE for your reply. If you prefer, you can send an e-mail. Thanks very much for your time and consideration
