Novel description for Perfect World Somewhere

I’ve finally come up with a blurb for the novel. My dear friends know how much I hate writing these things. Anyhow, here it is:

The sleepy farming town of Plumgrove is sheltered from the War. A haven for some, as the rest of the world struggles against the Pruessian Empire. A young prodigy named Lily Fairpoole works as her father’s apprentice, building and repairing robots in their humble maintenance shop. Her technical aptitude and exceptional singing voice herald a bright future.

In the aftermath of the Kaezer’s brutal invasion, Lily begins a treacherous journey. From the oppressive ration camps of the enemy, to the glittering and powerful off-world colonies, she learns the meaning of sacrifice, and survival.

A blend of early twentieth century eras and possible futures, as well as a coming-of-age story, this is the prequel to “Ruby Descent”, a decopunk novel due in 2015.

Author: Holly Gonzalez

At a young age, Holly began telling stories, dreaming up characters, and creating worlds. She writes speculative fiction, poetry, and children's books. During her school years, she won numerous writing contests and awards and was featured in her high school literary anthology. To date, she has self-published several short stories and poetry. Her current works-in-progress include a decopunk novel, and a weird western trilogy. She lives in Spokane, Washington, with her husband, Stephen, and a facetious tuxedo cat named Vincent.

    1. Thank you! Yes I have read “The City Darkens”, I absolutely loved it. It’s the closest that I’ve found to the type of retro-future world that I’m doing. With the addition of a little cyberpunk flair, and interplanetary travel 🙂
