I'm currently seeking an agent for my latest project, a real world story (i.e., no magical creatures) titled THE NEXT READER about a ghost writer who finds a life-changing letter hidden in an old book. The novel is presently in the hands of my proofreading team. Here's the "back cover blurb":
Everyone tells ghost writer Jack Winston that he should write his own book. His mother, his brother, his best friend, even his friend with benefits. He has all the skills, but no story to tell. Then an idea tumbles into his lap when he falls asleep reading an old book and wakes to discover a letter has slipped from the yellowed pages. An elegant letter addressed to The Next Reader, about people, their stories, and their connections through time and space, concluding with simple instructions: copy the letter, sign it, and hide the book where it might be found again someday. Six people before Jack have done just that.
When Jack’s bookseller friend Lainey Kerr sees the letter, she suggests they search for the previous readers. Spurred on by her idea, they’re swept into the stories of the charming, yet everyday Next Readers: an ex-con, a terminal cancer patient, a soccer mom, and more. The old book is the thread that binds them all together, but it’s a tangled mess to unravel. Even Lainey becomes a knot, with her own secret story that both shocks and intrigues Jack.
Clues are scarce as Jack and Lainey journey into the past, seeking the elusive Reader Number One. Hidden stories come to light and Jack finds his dear Lainey is a mystery too, threatening their growing relationship. The more they learn about the Next Readers, the more they discover about themselves, until their own secrets lead to life-changing decisions. Jack finally has a story to tell.
