Shiri – The Pitch

I’ve been asked to post up more info about the ‘top secret’ Shiri … so here’s the pitch!


Shiri blocks her ears to her mother’s screams and sees the arrows strike her father’s chest. With their murderers bearing down on her she turns to obey his final command. “RUN!”

Amenhotep, Prince of Egypt, burns her village, enslaves her people, and destroys all she loves. Only Shiri escapes. With tears in her eyes and vengeance in her heart, she races to warn the Shepherd King. If she doesn’t reach him in time, all Palestine will burn.

It’s a race that takes her from the fields of Armageddon, to the sands of Ancient Egypt and the very heart of Pharaoh’s court. It’s a struggle that brings the deaths of kings and the birth of a god. It’s a quest that sees her fall in love.

But in a world of masters and slaves can such love really survive? The man she loves is known to all others as Yuya. He is the mysterious new governor of a powerful Egyptian city, and high priest of ‘The Jealous God.’ He is determined to set her people free. Only Shiri knows his true identity and must protect it at all costs, for he is Josef, son of the Shepherd King, and without him, all is lost.

    Great pitch D! I’d love to post it on my blog, but I still have a few questions for you, like are you self-publishing or going traditional route? Are you going to make me photoshop your name on the cover or are you going to do that before I post the cover art to my blog? NO PRESSURE OR ANYTHING. (: Ok, yes now I just nagging you but I’d like to help you get the word out about your book, which begs the next question, novel, novella, novellette or short story? What genre? Oh, the list is long which is why I sent you my e-mail address….:D

  2. Well done on finishing your book. Best of luck with it!

  3. Sounds interesting. I love a novel that blends in history with a great story.

    As one of the lucky few who were privileged enough to read Shiri prior to publishing all I can say is this: Go and get this book.

  7. How’s the craic, Dave.

    I’m a Dublin southsider here 🙂

    Are you still “back home” or did you escape the clutches of the Celtic Tiger? 🙂

  8. So, your pitch contained hardly any clichés at all. How can it be a good pitch? Ah, well, you compel me to say…

    Best of luck, great success and knock’em dead!!!!
