Today is the day of the Logline/Hook Line Blogfest, hosted by Bryan over at the Time Guardian Blog.
Here are my possible loglines, for my novel ECHOES. Please do go to Bryan's page for the fest and take a look at his and the other entries!
1. When her identical other dies in a car crash, Echo must travel across the world to replace her, to fight for a name and identity of her own, and to survive in a world that despises echoes like her.
2. Echoes are born for a single reason: to mimic, learn and perhaps ultimately replace their other, and failing to do this can be fatal; the problem is, sixteen-year-old Echo just wants to be herself.
3. A girl is stitched in the sunlight of the Weavers' Loom, shaped in every way to mimic her other across the world; sixteen years later, she breaks every single one of the Weavers' laws.
4. Falling in love with a guardian, crafting wings instead of reading history, rebelling against her other's life and personality: these are things an echo must never do, only Echo, of course, does them.
I don't think any of these are quite right, or perfect, but hey. It was the best I could do! Cramming 400-odd pages into a single sentence is hard.
Thanks for the great blogfest, Bryan!
