Blurbed … again

Elbert is currently in first edit at 94,000 words. How's the blurb looking?

In 1928 South Dakota, a furry citizen of another planet enlists the aid of a human physician to ensure her soon-to-be-born son will someday be able to claim American citizenship. For Doctor Elbert Holland Harrison, the event sheds light on the real story behind legendary Gods, a family he didn’t know he had, a cure for old age, an opportunity for a new life.

But the Great Depression looms on the horizon, with the Dust Bowl catastrophe close on its heels — a one-two punch threatening an alien commerce empire that feeds two-thirds of Jivada’s population, its collapse potentially leading to an invasion of Earth.

And Elbert is about to find himself in the middle of it.

    And again, in case anyone’s looking …

    One fine summer evening in 1928, Doctor Elbert Harrison answers the door to a lady saying she’s from the Sasquatch chamber of commerce, a whimsical ploy to soften the news that the spacefaring Anye race has been doing business on Earth for 25,000 years.

    A cure for aging is offered in exchange for recording a birth certificate in the county — an easy favor, a small price to pay for a new life.

    But the Great Depression, looming on the horizon, threatens to provoke a flood of refugees from Jivada, an Anye colony world long dependent on Earth for its food supply.

    And that new life Elbert’s looking forward to is about to put him in the middle of it.
