What’s in a Blurb? Help!
Now comes the hardest part. I’m nearly finished with the last round of edits to Eden, Noon and now I’m faced with crafting the book blurb. Yikes! Writer’s block strikes! I find it easier creating a 95,000 word novel than teasing out a 200 word synopsis.
Plus, being the second book in the trilogy, how much do you say, or don’t say about the first instalment? Over share, and I’m doomed. Under share? I’m damned.
Plus, it’s got to sync with the blurb of the first book. You know, it’s actually got to feel like it fits into the overall story arc—without sounding hacked and stuffed together.
But … but it’s also got to feel like it’s a complete story in itself. Or who’ll bother with it?
Yeah, perhaps I’m over thinking this. A wee bit.
