Here's a query I've written for my recent novel Eureka! Be as brutally honest, and critical as possible. I promise I can take it. Walter is falling for the elusive campus celebrity Eureka Green, and it may cost him his life for doing so. What started as a ‘friend of a friend’ acquaintance has escalated into a partnership that involves hurdling across the stars rather than a typical kind of romance. He’s obsessed with her, and she’s obsessed with the loose rumour that her deceased father is still alive. It’s a rumour she’s willing to follow even if it will risk both of their lives. Walter had never expected any of this when he first left his home, to attend school at the renowned Wira University. Then again he never expected to meet someone the likes of Eureka Green either. From the penthouse of a sunken hotel by the sea, the two of them whisk off to faraway places by use of her miracle glass Anchor Box. Even against the warnings of the other star travelling Jockeys, Eureka takes Walter to the edges of known space following blind rumour. However, when the blind rumours lead to dead ends, Eureka gets desperate. Very quickly, Walter finds himself caught in a wild ghost chase surrounding the fastest ship ever built, a star skipping gambler, and an all knowing alien dish. Walter has a choice: follow the mad Eureka Green, or sum up the strength to tell her no. EUERKA! Is a 97,000 word YA Science Fiction novel set in the not so distant future where international corporations have more power than nations, and rising seas have swept away a more optimistic past. It is my debut novel. Thank you for your time and consideration.
