Taking a break from the Saturday serial and I'll resume posting next week.
In the mean time, I want to talk about log lines.
What’s a log line, you ask. It’s the content of a book condensed into one or two sentences, that entice a reader to go out and buy the novel.
I’ve been working on log lines lately, some of the lines are for published novels, one for a soon to be released novel and others for works in progress. Tell me if you can guess the genre or subgenre of the books in these log lines. Some of these are blatantly obvious and others very subtle.
~Murdered, his soul captured, Nathanial Miller wakes up to find he has inherited the body of his killer and the psychic abilities of a monster.
~Some loves last a lifetime, others never end.
~Evolution never happened so fast.
~Detonate, an explosive story of love on an alien world.
~God created life, scientists—clones, society—monsters.
~ Earth, population 6.6 billion, approximately fifty percent female. Finding the perfect bride should be easy.
Now, let’s see your best log lines.
