Blurb? Where do I start?


I admit I dislike writing blurbs almost as much as writing a synopsis. It's really difficult to distill that multi-plot story into a couple paragraphs. I found a simple soulution: when I read a good blurb, I save it into a file. When its time to write one I review the ones I've saved. The other blogs this month have gone over the contents of a good blog. Once you've read ten or twenty in a row the pattern becomes clear.
Here's the blurb for my May release, Ancient Blood. See if it makes you want to read more.
Lily Alban escapes a murderous stalker, but his vicious attack leaves her with the ability to see auras. She finds safety in the tiny hamlet of Rhodes End where a stranger stands out like a red light. Try as she might to deny her growing desire for Cole, she seeks his help but soon discovers the man she loves is not a man at all.
Werewolf Cole Benedict resists his attraction to Lily. A botanist researching the healing herbs to find a cure for Lycanthropy, he’s determined to protect Lily from her stalker as well as himself even in human form, but instinct takes over when he changes to his inner beast.
Together they must use their extraordinary gifts to catch Lily’s stalker before he attacks again, but revealing their secrets to one another could destroy their growing love or save them both.

  1. A botanist...nice twist. I like the idea of the healing, scientist type character having a dangerous side. Very nice.
