NO, seriously. I need help.
Here’s my problem. I have been sitting here trying to tweak the details of my book, In Strange Company, which is currently only available in eBook on Amazon. Why have I been tweaking it? Because, I’m actually planning to print somewhere along 500 copies of it. Now, this is where the problem lays, it’s going to be a physical thing! Arggghhh.
I’ve been fretting over the proof reading, the blurb, what to write in the blurb, whether it sounds nice, enticing or terrible? Too much stress for little old me. The old blurb just didn’t feel ‘right’ for the print version, so I obsessed over it till I found that I have now ended up with something that is quite different to what I was using before. Now, I like this current new blurb, but that’s just a writer talking cause those words belong to me I guess, but I should never be the one and only say in this matter.
I NEED your valued opinion. So I’m asking for a HUGE favour. Please read the blurb below and give me some feedback?! I need to get back to the press soon!
Here goes nothing. Attempt at writing an effective blurb #2:
Clare Peterson is rich, confident and beautiful, yet she knows money can’t rescue her from her loneliness. At the end of yet another unremarkable year, Clare finds herself forced to go on a ski trip in the company of total strangers. However strangers are the least of her problems when an accident leaves many dead and a few injured on an icy cold mountain, leaving Clare with little choice but to endure the company of three other survivors: a mute, a joker, and a guy-next-door whose advances are anything but subtle.
Will Clare’s ordeal with strangers be just that, an ordeal to survive? Or will she find a cure for her loneliness, or perhaps even love? Or better yet, will she even survive to tell her tale? After all, she is stuck on a very cold mountain albeit with three handsome men.
Also, what say you to the back cover compared to the front? Does it ‘fit’ well?
