This is a good excercise for every author to learn how to do, and to do it all the time! 

Try describing your story in different ways as well, using ten words or less.  Like this!

For my series of Light Novels called DOTS:
Lonely store clerk meets women who wage a secret war.
New machine finds geniuses who are able to alter reality.
Billionaire and mizu shōbai girl tell man he's their savior.

For my episodic anime called The VocaLords:
Battle between Good and Evil is fought with music!
Cybernetically enhanced guitarist is infected with a computer virus.
To save her mortal soul, woman unleashes Hell on Earth.

And then finally, for my Alternate History Science Fiction story called St. Charles and the Children from the Sun:
Dragons from outer space help Allies win World War Two.
Space aliens use Earth's nuclear arsenal to overheat our oceans.
Secret government plan is hatched to thwart sea monster overlords.

There! Like that! These short blurbs are often called Elevator Pitches, because you are to imagine yourself on an elevator with the publisher or agent of your dreams. You only have ten seconds before the doors open, and the two of you are about to go your separate ways.

Quick! Tell them about your book! ❤😻❤

For The Butterfly Effect as a whole: One small thing can change the world.
Departure: Natheniel screws up—big time.
Secrets of the Ley Lines: Teenagers are doing what now?
Bloodline: It makes sense in hindsight. (That one’s hard to do!)
Rebellion: So, I guess this is actually happening now?

Are… are you using present tense? 
You absolute psychopath! Security!

I think Publishing Person has taken a shine to you. ❤😻❤
