Breaking Through THE BLURB

Yesterday I went to a Kentucky Romance Writers meeting. I had the best time. The meeting was about blurbs. Well, I've been working on mine for several days now. How anybody can sit and stare at the same four paragraphs for two days is beyond me, but that's what I'd been doing. STARING, TWEEKING, ADDING, PARING DOWN, READDING. Well you get the idea.

Blurbs are sooooo important. They sell the book to the customer. Thus all the work and agonizing I've done over mine.

With the help of some new friends and some old from my KYRW chapter and my wonderful crit loop Lethal Ladies, I hammered out my blurb. So, here it is. This will be on the back of my book when my book is released at the end of August. That's a tentative date. The book has taken on a life of its own, and I have four stories to tell all at the same time.
But excuses aside, I'm making good progress because I HAVE MY BLURB!!!

What happens when a Navy SEAL wakes from a month-long coma to discover he’s being investigated for murder?

Ensign Brett Weaver knows he’s innocent of the crime he’s accused, but how can he prove it with NCIS breathing down his neck? A chance meeting with reporter Tess Kelly, offers him an opportunity to get the press on his side. But can he trust Tess to keep his other secrets off the record?

Tess is working hard to live up to her father's expectations. When Brett offers her information about SEAL training in exchange for an introduction to her award-winning journalist father, she jumps at it. The situation Brett lobs into her father's lap is a major scoop.  But the secret she discovers about Brett is just as newsworthy. Will her feelings for this wounded warrior win out, or will she release a story guaranteed to destroy Brett’s SEAL career?

When Tess’s father is kidnapped, Brett’s team is deployed to find him. At the same time, a leak in the investigation puts Tess and Brett’s lives in danger. Will Brett be able to break through the lasting effects of his injuries and prove he’s a battle-ready SEAL? Or will he and Tess lose everything at the whim of a vengeful killer?

 Let me know what you think.

Great blurb, Teresa. Want to help me with mine? ;) I suppose I need to get hopping on it.

Teresa Reasor said...

Send it on Michael and I'll give you my suggestions.

The only problem was the blurb stopped! ;)
I would definitely pre-order if it was available as an option. On the plus side, in waiting for this one I have delved into your other titles and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed Captive Hearts and Highland Moonlight. By the time I am done your booklist I should be ready for my next Navy Seals fix from you.... woot! woot! I can't wait!

Thanks so much for reading the blurb and saying such nice things about my other titles!! I'm so thrilled. And the book will be out the end of August, tentative release date August 26th.
