As December 16th, publication date for Mission Improbable draws closer, everything is slowly slotting into place.
Today I put the finishing touches to the book’s blurb. Writing blurbs is a painstaking process. Every word must count. After a couple of days’ work and much advice from friends on KBoards and at the Taipei Writers’ Group, I think I’m done.
In the deepest reaches of the galaxy there are places and beings that aren’t impossible, just very, very improbable.
Carrie Hatchett is a low-achieving daydreamer, and the last person on Earth who should be resolving disputes for the Transgalactic Council. After providing a good home to her butt-ugly dog and psychotic cat, her biggest challenge in life is to avoid being fired, again.
But a mysterious green mist sucks her beneath her kitchen sink, and an unusual clerical error leads to an offer she foolishly doesn’t refuse.
In settling the conflict between the mechanical placktoids and the mysterious oootoon, Carrie exposes a threat to the entire galaxy.
