For salesman Wilson Parker and 13-year-old Ty Cummins, in particular, this year will change their lives.
I posted this not only to give more information about my book, but as an example of a small blurb, ie one too short for the back of your book, but about right to go in a blogpost, social media, or on a sales page.
