I've been working on a series (and destroying it LOL) for a few years now. Finally, I decided to go back to basics and rebuild the bones of the story from the ground up. It took me three weeks of angsting, but I've finally got a blurb that "almost" captures the story I envisioned.
What are your secrets for laying story foundations? Please share, it's a plotting emergency!
Here's what I have...
Fang Cell (trademark pending)
Some legends are born. Others are made. But the legend of FANG CELL (tm) was forged at the gates of Hell.
On December 21, 2012, the world of Naval Special Operations changed forever.
A virtual warfare experiment gone wrong has torn a rift between the virtual realm and the physical one. The war game's fearsome supernatural warrior, Ryder Black, has been catapulted into physical reality. Capable of assuming the form of the Cerberus who guards the gates of Hell, he holds the power to unleash the scourges of Hell upon his enemies.
But Ryder Black’s DNA has been exploited by a ruthless Navy Captain hell bent on creating an immortal army known as Fang Cell.
Discovering the war game’s highly addictive substance known as Immortium has entered reality along with Ryder Black, the Navy now holds the power to cage and control the supernatural operatives like animals. The hopelessly addicted Fangs are forced to do a madman's bidding on the battlefield, or to face a hellish withdrawal from the substance they would gladly kill for one more dose of.
But the balance of power over the Fangs is threatened by the discovery that there is more to Immortium than its ability to render the Fangs compliant. When human women begin shooting the mysterious drug for its aphrodisiac effect, the Fangs begin to learn that the will of the heart is far more powerful than the evil aspirations of a madman.
Can the power of love possibly be enough to stop a self-serving Naval Officer from unleashing the scourges of Hell on an unsuspecting world? Only the passions stirred in the hearts of the Fangs by the women who love them will serve to elevate their stories into the stuff of legend.
