Sarai’s Fortune – Cover Quote

I’m in the process of submitting my requests/recommendations for the cover for Sarai’s Fortune (Shadowcat Nation #1), and I need to come up with a single line that will go on the cover. Sort of like a tag line. For Andromeda’s Fall the cover line was “Andie is being hunted. To survive she needs a mate.” Below is the blurb I’m submitting for Sarai’s … Read More Sarai’s Fortune – Cover Quote

Meet the Hills of Texas

I recently finished the first draft my new contemporary romance novel. It is the first in a series – though, like many contemporary series, the goal is to make each book stand alone. I thought it would be fun to introduce the series a little bit. The series is called The Hills of Texas. This is a bit of a play on words. It … Read More Meet the Hills of Texas

Rewriting Blue Violet’s Pitch for a Query Letter

I’m in the process of sending out query letters as I pursue more traditional publication. I have done this before, but with no success. This time I decided to revise my pitch. Now, my chances of getting a nibble from a publisher/editor/agent are a little under 2% according to a quick Google search. So I’m setting my expectations very low. But logically, my chances … Read More Rewriting Blue Violet’s Pitch for a Query Letter

Crimson Dahlia Blurb

Back cover of Blue Violet Okay… book blurb time. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I intensely dislike writing the blurb for the back of the book (and book page on  retail websites). Seriously… it is one of my least favorite aspects of self-publishing. I struggle with the balance of revealing too much or not enough, creating enough tension without confusing people or … Read More Crimson Dahlia Blurb

Hyacinth Book Blurb

Calling all fans of Blue Violet – help me pick the book blurb for Hyacinth! The book blurb is the description on the back of the book, or on the Amazon website, that gives you an idea of what the book is about. This tiny amount of text is incredibly important because it can often mean the difference between a new reader giving the … Read More Hyacinth Book Blurb

Writing a Hella Good Book Description

I am working on a kick ass book description. It will be the first thing people read on Kindle when deciding if they want to buy the book or not.  I have to say that I’m struggling with this task a bit.  Here’s what’s making it tricky… The book, titled Blue Violet, is paranormal (with a little romance thrown in too).  Sort of X-men meets Twilight … Read More Writing a Hella Good Book Description
