Sneak Peak at my WIP: Weathervane

Inspiring Me Today: "No Cars Go" by Arcade Fire

If you've been following me at all on Facebook, then you may have heard wind of a project called Weathervane. I haven't said much about it, but you can see the cover here.

Well, now it's time to reveal just a bit about it. There's obviously a lot more about this world, but I put together a little query pitch about it. Check it out and let me know what you think!

-----------------------------

When you’re a stormrunner, you live and die by one rule: when the rooster spins, you run.

16-year-old David King spends his days watching his weathervane and trying to protect his family farm, not only from the freaky extreme weather than has become a weekly occurrence, but also from the manipulative yanks in Norte’s storm-free capitol, The District. David’s delicately balanced world is blown away when he is randomly selected by electronic vote to be a candidate for the next chairman of the board of Norte. David knows that being elected as a candidate for the country’s highest office is not an honor; it’s a death sentence. Besides, he’s just a farm boy who spends his free time leaning against a cow and writing poems about Bethany Sheldon. What can he do?

David doesn’t know. All he knows is that when you’re a stormrunner, you live and die by one rule: when the rooster spins, you run… but not away.
