I have always found it incredibly difficult to describe what my book is about. I can never decide whether to make it seem more intelligent than it actually is, or to dumb it down, so I end up stuttering out a combination of the two. Which makes me look a) dumb, and b) like I’m lying about having written a book in the first place. The Bear, however, has totally nailed it with this;
“Ben’s a normal kind of guy. He feels under-appreciated at work and takes advantage of his assistant’s good work ethic. He enjoys spending his free time out and about, though mostly at the pub, with his friends. He drives, quickly, and times his journeys in the pursuit of ever shorter periods travelling. Ben also believes that his best friend Ethan can fly.
But it’s more than that. Ethan goes missing, has different recollections of nights out and has a habit of appearing in peculiar places on odd occasions. Now all Ben has to do is convince Kirsten, Frank, Tom/Luke and Ethan of the truth. And, himself. It would also be helpful if along the way he could understand how the inside of The Darkhorse pub works, and find out why the narrator keeps speaking out of turn.
A witty, humorous and page turning read. With His Head In The Clouds promises a smile, a laugh and the occasional bemused expression for every reader.”
Now, I’ve just got the cover to finish and I’m ready to publish.
