Dobbs, Cooper and Blitzer- faces every person who has a TV knows as well, or even better, than their next-door neighbour are a perfect opening to this
wonderful story. I can almost hear each one of them as they talk... the best news gathering team on television, yada yada.
It's the use of these characters which built an aura of 'truthiness' to your readers that no other characters could have pulled off.
Your story has the end of the world ala Prof Pouerpoint
, the Vatican dispensing ala texting and a Mayan mystery carving all dependent upon an
intergalactic message to POTUS.
To top it all off, there's a happy ending!
Geez, what's NOT to like here?
I gotta ask... Flatwoods... you wouldn't happen to be a well-known American writer by the name of King? I doubt it, honestly, because you don't
include snippets of classic rock lyrics much, but you're every bit as good as he is.
...and I'm not joking.
