Cover blurb for Danny Dirks

Now that I have my (nearly) final draft in hand (it arrived tonight from my editor!), I’m working on crafting the cover blurb for the paperback. See blurb below:

1st draft:

Danny Dirks wants nothing more than to play baseball in his father’s orchard now that school is out and the summer has begun. But, with the approach of his 15th birthday, strange things begin to happen. He hears voices, sees visions of his dead mother, sleepwalks in the middle of the night, and wonders why the cute new girl next door seems to hate him so much. Then, on the day of his birthday, Danny’s grandfather reveals a long-kept family secret. A legacy that makes Danny the linchpin in a pact that keeps peace on Earth. But war is approaching. An unseen war that could tear apart the dimensional fabric of Earth. It’s up to Danny, along with his small band of allies, to learn to control his new found powers, keep the peace, and become the true Heir of Pendragon.

2nd draft:

Danny Dirks wants nothing more than to play baseball in his father’s orchard now that school is out. But, with the approach of his 15th birthday, strange things start happening. He begins to hear voices, see visions of his dead mother, and sleepwalk in the middle of the night. Worse still, he thinks that cute new neighbor’s daughter might be a dragon… which she is. She is sworn to protect the line of Arthur Pendragon, the keystone in a pact made centuries ago between man and dragon. But, there are dragons who are not happy with that pact and are bent on re-opening the portal through which they originally came, back to their homeworld, unleashing an army to rule over Earth. It’s up to Danny to accept his fate, control a power passed down through the ages, and, with the help of  his new friends, prevent the portal from being opened.

Let me know what you think. Also, if you’re a YA book blogger interested in reviewing Danny Dirks and the Heir of Pendragon, please leave a comment below. 🙂
