#WriterLifeMonth Day 4: Mock cover art.
The back blurb might run something like this:
Their lives weren’t supposed to change, but when Michael is diagnosed with terminal cancer, his family erupts into communal and private chaos. His husband, Cal, veers wildly between his absolute devotion and his fears of the unknowns. As Michael succumbs to the effects of his illness, Kate, Michael and Cal’s seventeen year old daughter, tries to be the bedrock for her family that her parents can’t be. And Erika, Michael’s older sister, finds herself evaluating her life and relationships, especially as her relationship with Cal becomes increasingly intimate.
Heh, I kind of made it sound like a novel, but it’s a short story sequence. It allows me to play to my strengths as a writer, and flexibility to tell the story has it needs to be told.
