Desultory Enigmas Promo

Desultory Enigmas is the 'short' story serial I've been working on a little bit this summer, and will hopefully be continuing work on this fall. I wrote a promo for it today. :)


They were fresh out of the Labyrinth, a prison riddled with mystery, friends, enemies, and death. They were tired, they were hungry, they were desperate.

Quidderick Squidders and Peter Thomas are just your ordinary young men framed for murder, until they stumble into Desultory Enigmas, a mysterious freelance organization dedicated to investigating the riddles of the world. (Yeah, then they become even more ordinary.)

Though warned that they had better have nothing to lose, Quid and Peter are soon sucked into a world of savage enigmas and strange people, many of them blessed - or cursed - with gifts that make them different and dangerous. And the further they go, the more they realize that their own lives are intertwined with the hundreds of unexplained events happening on the dark side of the planet.

[ Hope you like cheese! Because some of this sounds really cheesy now that I'm looking at it.....]

Actually, it sounds intriguing! I'd take it off the shelf to flip through if I read that in a bookstore. It's got a slightly off-kilter and playful feel, but edged with darkness, which I like.

Thank you very much! I'll post an excerpt from one sometime. :)
