I had no idea it would be difficult to create a blurb and a tagline for my book. My first blurb attempt, my editor didn’t like at all. I thought I’d modeled it on what I saw in other Clean Reads books. And I’d gotten some feedback from other writers, too. The editor and I went back and forth with my ideas and her suggestions and my rewrites. My writing group (we meet once a week to write together) heard me moaning about my struggles for several weeks.
Until . . .
One day I got it right!
Then I had to work on the tagline, which was even harder for me.
But I’m happy to say we reached agreement on that, too, so here they are:
Tagline: Is murder on the menu?
Blurb of ALONE:
Ready for adventure in the snowy Colorado mountains, Cecelia Gage is thrilled to be employed as the live-in housekeeper for her favorite bestselling author. The twenty-five-year old doesn’t count on Mark Andrews being so prickly, nor becoming part of the small town gossip centering on the celebrity. Neither does she expect to become involved in Andrews family drama and a relationship with Simon Lindley, Mark’s oh so good-looking best friend. And certainly, Cecelia has no idea she’ll be mixed up in a murder investigation because of this job.
Will Cecelia’s faith in God get her through all the trouble that lies ahead?
I hope others find both intriguing.
