In between watching my Amazon Author Rank climb like a rocket because of Monster Hunter Files...

I'm working up the back-cover copy and the elevator pitch for Pack Dynamics 2. I am so excited for you guys to get to read this, so here's a (rough draft) taste.

Elevator pitch:
A werewolf private eye clashes with a collection of criminals to keep Berserker Virus Murder-Wolf tech out of the wrong hands--but when he's offered the opportunity for his own taste of vengeance, his worst battle may be with himself.

Yes, I know that's a bit long and clunky. Rough draft.

And here's the back cover copy:
Six months after a case gone bad infected him with lycanthropy, private eye Ben Lockwood hasn't simply come to terms with his new condition, he's embraced it. The animal lets him just be instead of dwelling on past horrors, and he frequently sleeps better as a wolf. However, a mutilated body left behind by a female werewolf attests that not everyone deals as well as he is. And then a couple of supernatural law enforcement agents inform him that if he wolfs too much, he'll forget his humanity--leaving them with a mess to clean up.

Ben soon learns he's got bigger problems when one of those past horrors comes roaring back into his life. Rutger Ostheim, enraged by the death of his family, breaks out of prison to seek vengeance. He's aided by a businessman with a separate grudge, who's taken the werewolf nanotech to new and horrifying heights, determined to sell it to the highest bidder. No matter what they want Berserker Virus Murder-Wolf tech for.

But when Ben is given the opportunity for some payback of his own, he may find his inner demons a far worse threat than a tech-enhanced werewolf twice his size.

I may leave out the line about the mutilated body; I'm not sure it actually adds anything to what we've got with the whole "forgetting his humanity" part. I'm just happy I got "Berserker Virus Murder-Wolf tech" in there.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, my Author Rank on Amazon right now (for All Books) is 310 230. My rank for All Books > Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy is 29.
