I haven’t talked a lot about the plot of Space Dog and the Black Virus (Book Two of the Solar Stone Trilogy). In fact, I haven’t talked a lot about it at all. I released the cover art a long time ago and the title when I finished writing the book, but nothing else. It’s still a ways until the book’s release. I’m waiting on one more editor’s feedback of the book, but I’m going to “guesstimate” that the book will be released early next year.
Sorry for the wait! This book is HUGE (480 pages). There’s a lot going on in it, as you’re going to see below.
So, today, I’m releasing the synopsis of the book – although I’m holding back on the tag line for now (I don’t like the one I’ve thought up of so far). Below is the synopsis, but I’m calling it an “extended” synopsis simply because what is below is too long for publication. I’ll be working on cutting it down in the following months so it can eventually be used as the synopsis on the back of the book. But until then, enjoy!
Fear strikes through the worried residents of the galaxy as Dr. Catazoid continues toward procuring the Solar Stone and destroying the galaxy’s greatest power: the sun. But a new complication has emerged within this chaos. A deadly computer virus known as the Black Virus is plaguing the computers across the galaxy, creating nothing but blackouts and miser.
Meanwhile, Space Dog continues his campaign against Dr. Catazoid, but this time with the help of twelve-year-old Lexi Lowe. While hoping for things to grow easier with a new partner, Space Dog quickly learns that it merely leads to new complications as the galaxy casts its attention on her, pushing him to the side.
However, Space Dog realizes that Lexi is the least of his problems. An unnerving past occupies most of his thoughts as he comes face to face with jealousy, anger, death and betrayal.
Now, Space Dog and Lexi must race against the clock to destroy the Black Virus before it destroys the galaxy, all the while facing secrets and dangers that lurk around every corner. They will learn that the people they may need most is each other.
What do you think? Any suggestions? In case you don’t know, the back cover synopsis is one of the most important pieces of your book. It’s the selling point (alongside the cover and other exterior features). So, any feedback is greatly appreciated!
Btw, I finished Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, so expect a review in a week or two! 😉
