And, I decided to go with several pitches for the same book, because why not?

Shunned by his peers, Dunnie hopes for redemption when he uses his super-power again. Instead his displays draws the attention of dark forces. #MG #AD #SF #IWSGPit

The Green stretches out around him. He only wants to use his powers to grow life a life he can call his own. Just how badly could that go? #MG #AD #SF #IWSGPit

Dunnie has a power that's gone wrong in the past. But he has it under control now. Until his old enemy throws an apple core at his head. #MG #AD #SF #IWSGPit

You might think that super-powers come with tights and a cape. Dunnie knows they just come with trouble - like detention, acne, and enemies. #MG #SF #IWSGPit

Super-powers mean super-trouble, detention, enemies - everything Dunnie normally tries to avoid by keeping his power over the Green a secret. #MG #SF #IWSGPit

When Dunnie thinks of the Green, he thinks of life. It's more than just plants he can control. And, that's what his enemies are interested in. #MG #AD #SF #IWSGPit
