Here's the "hook" (cross your fingers) dangled in front of seven agents tonight/morning/whatever (midnight)

RE: Manifested, a young adult novel

Dear Lucky Agent (not the real salutation):

Sixteen-year-old Luke discovers he can rapidly heal himself and others. When the hunters find out, they want him and his family dead. The Guardians want to use Luke’s ability to benefit their society. Luke must decide who to trust as he learns to control his newly manifested healing abilities; and decide fast, because his family’s survival depends upon him.

Luke plunges into the epic conflict between Guardians and hunters while his family comes along for the ride.

The Secret Society of Guardians consists of humans with supernatural abilities like teleporting, projecting, and shielding. The hunters, normal humans, seek out and kill Guardians, especially since a healer has manifested.

Manifested is a fast paced young adult novel featuring magical realism. The story will appeal to the fans of Allyson Noel’s Immortals series and Scott Westerfeld’s Midnighter’s trilogy. While Manifested is a stand-alone book, it has great series potential.

I am seeking representation for Manifested. The finished manuscript of 78,400 words is available upon request. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Your soon-to-be-published and favorite writer (not the real signature)
