I am currently finishing up the last round of editing for my next short story "Aztlan", and am also going to be creating a book trailer as well as an audiobook version.
The audiobook version and the book trailer are going to be scored by a local musician, and I told him I would write a small description (like the "blurb" one might find on the back cover jacket) to give him an idea of what the story is about.
And I figured that while I have it, as well as the book cover completed, I might as well share it with everyone here and show that I haven't just been sitting on my ass this past week plus.
(Well I have, but I've been moderately productive WHILE sitting on my ass, lol)
So without further ado, here is the book cover to my upcoming short story as well as the "blurb" on the back cover!
"And one grievous day and night befell them, when the whole body of your warriors was swallowed up by the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner was swallowed up by the sea and vanished"-Plato's Critias
~What if everyone, from Sais, Solon, Plato, even your High School History teacher, had it all wrong?
What if the story of Atlantis was never intended to be a history lesson, a cautionary parable or a metaphor?
What if the missing evidence of one of the greatest civilizations ever sought has been staring us in the face for over fifty years?
For one University Professor and his class of undergraduates, the answers to these questions will bring our future as a race into startling relief.
For it has been said that if we fail to learn from our past, we are doomed to repeat it.
As always, let me know what you think!
