WIP It Blogfest
Thanks to DL Hammons and Elise Fallson for hosting this blogfest designed to showcase works in progress!
WIP Title: St. Peter at the Gate
Word Count (projected/actual so far): ~25k/19,020
Genre: espionage (I’ve classified this series as Mad Men meets John le Carré in that it’s very character driven.)
How long have you been working on it?: about 4 months (had to set it aside for a bit to complete other work)
Elevator Pitch (if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarize your book): It’s about an exiled British spy who is called back to the agency to save his boss/mentor from accusations of treason.
Brief Synopsis (250 words or less): Sequel to St. Peter in Chains. Peter and Charles have settled in Salzburg, where Peter is bored and still is not sure whether he can entirely trust Charles. When Gamby shows up to tell Peter that Gordon is in danger of internal forces stringing him up for treason, Peter agrees to return to the agency to see if he can help. He must then deal with a separation from Charles while navigating the shark tank and taking on a young, untested agent as a protogé.
