It’s the third week of Calling All Critiques (man, that went by fast!) and today we’re looking at blurbs and queries! I actually think book blurbs and queries are tough to write so I’m looking forward to seeing some of the feedback this week and learning a few tricks.a Rafflecopter giveaway

Title: The Drought of Sam Dakota
Genre: Adult Thriller
After the horrors Sam witnesses as a child advocate, he never expected four words to be what keeps him up at night. “I have your son.” When Danny vanishes, the chances of finding out who took him slowly dwindle with every dead end. Faced with changing theories and dwindling police interest, Sam makes the tough decision to hire Rami Amato, an unconventional P.I. with an aversion to “kid cases.” Amato uncovers more than a kidnapping. He uncovers conspiracy and betrayal, Sam never could have imagined.
Then the second note arrives. “Thank you for your contribution. I always wanted a boy.” Each note depicts further the horrors being exacted on Sam’s son, there’s nothing authorities can do. The ongoing nightmare consumes his life as the kidnapper starts a clock, counting down to Danny’s death. Amato’s last kidnapping case ended badly; he refuses to let another end like that. Besides, it’s clear Sam won’t survive that final letter. Everyone’s time is running out.
